Is it just me, or is it an epic facepalm?
Because I bet we're gonna see lots of them in 2014.

As long as they introduce video replays we should see a few less!

I was talking about the organization failure, not about the games or referees' decisions :P

overall it wasn't a good world cup: referees sucked, the jabulani sucked, half european teams sucked (even teams that are supposed to be part of the best, like england, france, italy...), stadiums usually werent full, stupid vuvuzelas :dodgy:, etc.

Meh.

Meh.

A few of the referees sucked, by and large they didn't make any huge mistakes (and if they did it was stuff that video replays could've EASILY cleared up.

The ball didn't suck either.....this happens every single tournament that everyone complains about the ball, it's just an excuse.  Look at the hit from Van Bronckhorst......it didn't move in the air in the slightest, it's no different to any other ball.  They've been using in it Germany for over 6 months and we've heard nothing about it.

Half the European teams did suck.  Italy were too old, England were too scared, France were just plain crap :P

Stadiums not being full is disgusting.....if the WC is in England in 2018 I can't imagine there would be a seat spare for ANY game.  I for one would go to any game.....I'd go to North Korea-New Zealand if it was on.....it's the WORLD CUP.....doesn't matter if it's Brazil-Spain or the two worst teams in it....the World Cup final or a random group game....having it in your country is a privilege and I think the South African public have let their country down by not attenting in huge numbers (seeing as they had the easiest access to ridiculously cheap tickets.....I don't see them being that cheap over here!)

And yes.....the vuvuzelas do get a bit annoying, but it's a cultural thing.....no different to the drumming at English games, the flares at Italian games.....it wasn't as bad as everyone made out...for us at least, for the players it may have been a different story, but it was the same for all of them anyway.......and yeah, I'm pretty sure they'll be infecting the European game in the months to come :P.  Borussia Dortmund have already banned them in view of this......and I think other teams have plans to sell branded ones in their club shops.
