Y'all need to take off your red, white, and blue blinders. This was not a case of the officiating merely being bad all the way around. The penalty for holding the ball too long and the hand ball call seemed to be intentional calls in favor of the U.S. Terrible.
And missing the call against Tancredi for intentionally stomping on Carli Lloyd's head
was just a small oversight? Tancredi has a bad reputation for being a dirty player and this proved it.
For a team that said the US women "played too hard," the Canadian women surely stepped up to the alleged challenge.
The officiating was terrible all around. Things usually balance out in the end. Most commentary on soccer officiating is like believing in psychics. People focus on the "true" prophecies and forget all the BS that never came to fruition. If an official is bad, he's bad. Period.
If we need to "take our red, white, and blue blinders off," you need to put that erection against anything American away
