[quote]'d also add that letting so much "physical" play go ranks pretty far down the list of reasons the EPL is so popular outside of England,[/quote] Agreed. And to be fair, that's not what I was trying to convey. if it came cross that way, it wasn't intentional. [quote]I tend to think offic...

[quote]thenry712[/quote] One example. You stumped me bud, congrats. That game was an outlier and a terrible rebuttal. What I'm referring to is the soccer cultures that allow cheap, weak arse fouls to be acceptable called at a much higher rate than what I see in the English League. I'm right. ...

[quote]teams should be able to penalized for their fans whistling the referee and urging decisions, IE....Barca are the absolute worst at this.[/quote] I think the punishing fans thing is harsh probably.

Card-Happy Referees in Big Games - mynamebowl
Sorry for the long post in advance but I would like to hear some of your guys viewpoints on this so here goes.. I've noticed a trend and in my mind it's not a good one - It seems to me that in Spain, Italy, France, and to some extent Germany, the style of officiating doesn't translate well to Cha...

[quote]Something has been off with Messi since the Copa final last year... I think that loss really fricked him up.[/quote] Na stuff like that doesn't phase players like him IMO.

re: Match Day 4/19 Barcelona - Juventus (FS1) & Monaco - Dortmund (FS2) - mynamebowl
Looking at the odds on Bovada - I was surprised Dortmund is a fairly heavy favorite at +115 v Monaco's +190. Fabinho out because of suspension plus the probability of Dortmund needing to win by 2 goals to progress is Vegas's reasoning I guess, but still found those numbers a little funny. ...
