It amazes me that FIFA dramatically change the way Ref’s call the game right before each World Cup. I think that yellow cards for tackles from behind and shirt pulling is a huge improvement but why not do it a year before the tournament to allow the players and coaches time to adjust. They are handing out yellow card like paychecks and now we are seeing players dive in order to get an opponent a card or even sent off. I would love to be a fly on the wall at the Ref’s meeting going into the round of 16. They must be saying to each other “What happens when we get fooled by a diver and mistakenly send off a guy with the world watching on TV replay? What happens if it the outcome of the Cup gets down to a Ref’s mistake?” The FIFA suits will be hiding in there office’s while the Ref’s take the shit. The biggest question on my mind is, what game will the Ref’s be calling after the World Cup. What can fans, players, coaches expect in MLS for example. Oops, I was never sure what game they would be calling in MLS most of the time.
