The OneLove armbands have all but been practically banned by FIFA and its overlords at the World Cup in Qatar.
But what if some players were to sport hairdos with the same logo and visual?
Would FIFA extend the ban to hairdos that is part of a person rather than something they put on outside of official uniforms, or modify on official uniforms?
FIFA is intent to get Brazil as far as they can in this World Cup because without Brazil, there would be so much revenue potentially lost from a disinterested nation! The officiating in games where Brazil faced any sort of a threat has been horrendous in Brazil’s favour. Where anything has been done to make things a little fairer, like the Columbian penalty given today, it was of no immediate consequence. Brazil had a two goal lead with ten minutes to go. One kick wasn’t going to do much.
But FIFA seemed to have forgotten there is such a thing as karma, and karma sent a little reminder today by removing Neymar from the rest of the World Cup with a broken vertebrae. FIFA is going to have to step up its refereeing favoritism to help Brazil now. Let’s see if FIFA has got that audacity to make the refereeing of Brazil’s games even more blatant, knowing karma will be a little less kind next time as the cheating get more flagrant.
Here’s hoping Neymar recovers well, though. It ain’t his fault Brazil is getting the favoured treatment.
Congratulations to the Japanese women soccer team for winning the 2011 FIFA World Cup in soccer!
They fought courageously, coming back from a goal down twice reasonably late in the game to tie it 2-2 in extra time. Then they won it decisively on in penalty kicks, not needing to finish the set to win it 3-1, becoming the first Asian soccer World Cup champions. Absolutely true to their underdog label to the very end!
The US may have seemed to have dominated play, with 27 shots to a dozen or so by the Japanese. However, it was all an illusion. The Japanese had more shots on goal than the US, at 6-5. The Japanese also had the ball 53% of the time.
The US was the flashier team, but the Japanese was the more consistent team.
