World Cup: Refs

Ok so throughout this world cup so far i have noticed that the refs have been making some pretty bad calls, and could have had a significant impact on the game if they would have made the right call

    Referee calls are so fucking dumb in soccer, look at the time Diego Maradona won the World cup in 86!!

    "After scoring two goals in the 2–1 quarter-final win against England his legend was cemented.

    This match was played with the background of the Falklands War between Argentina and the United Kingdom (of which England forms part) and emotions were still lingering in the air throughout the entire match. Replays showed that the first goal was scored by striking the ball with his hand. Maradona was coyly evasive, describing it as "a little with the head of Maradona and a little with the hand of God." It became known as the "Hand of God," or "la mano de Dios." Ultimately, on 22 August 2005 Maradona acknowledged on his television show that he had hit the ball with his hand purposely, and that he immediately knew the goal was illegitimate. The goal stood, much to the wrath of the English players."

    He basically ran to his teammates and told them to celebrate so that they looked as convinced as he was the goal was made properly, and it worked, the ref basically said in his head, "Well, they all think it was a legit goal, IT MUST HAVE BEEN!!"

    Ref's need to have the decisions the make reviewed sometimes, especially when it is as controversial and idiotic as the one made in 86. Just because an official says it happens, doesn't mean it did.

    Look at this year in baseball, an umpire made a bad call (and admitted later he did make a bad call), and a pitcher lost his perfect game, 27 up, 27 down.

    Soccer like baseball needs to give in and just use replay. if you think replay is not a good idea, i would love to hear why letting the refs fuck up is a good idea?
