I'm not buying the Kljestan goal. At 90+, that may have been tired mistake.


The goalie though... he just went to his knees and didn't react at all.

They say most of the money was shuffled on the Asian Handicap: Winner + O/U on Total Goals


Then I stand by my assessment of the 0-0 Argentina friendly. Put a lot of money on Argentina to win, O/U on goals was probably 3. And Joel Aguilar was the ref, I know that motherfricker is shady.

This is the game where Pablo Mastroeni got a straight red for touching the ball or some stupid shite.

It's much too hard to fix a game with players. Imagine if gamblers got to Ricardo Clark in the World Cup. (I don't think this happened, btw...) He gives away a goal. His coach subs him out before the half. As the match fixer, you've lost control of the outcome.

Only three people are *guaranteed* to be on the field for 90 minutes. And one of those guys has the ability to be judge and jury over every decision. THAT is the guy you want in on the fix.

Goalies are a good choice.. the onlyway he comes out is a red which accomplishes the same thing

To an extent... But think of the US - Jamaica game that the US lost.... what did we create? Two chances?

Still not enough control of the outcome.
