    Croatia Robbed at World Cup Opener

    Shame on you FIFA and the Brazilian National Team (aka the best diving team in the world) for what you did to the Croatian National Team during the opening game of the world cup. Not only did FIFA derail the Croatian National Team by ensuing that our best striker (Mario Mandzukic; Bayern Munich's leading scorer) missed the opener due to a poorly dealt red card in the last qualifier game, they ROBBED and CHEATED the Croatian National Team in the most evident manner during the opening game. I am just glad that half of the world's population witnessed it! If you did not watch the game, WATCH IT in it's entirety PLEASE, and see for yourself! 3 Crucial Calls that determined the outcome of the game: 1) Foul called after FRED's Oscar winning dive ("NEVER IN A MILLION YEARS WAS THAT A FOUL" - quote by ESPN Announcer. 2) The Goal that was scored by Croatia to equalize at 2-2 only to be taken away because of light contact with the Goalie (ESPN announcers and majority of observers agree that it was a goal) and 3) The foul that was committed by Brazil (where a Croatian players was completely tackled and Brazil ran off with the ball to score a goal; a clear foul). SHAME! SHAME! SHAME! SHAME! SHAME! on you Brazilian national team and FIFA! You lost credibility with the world! This is a picture I took at Time Square (I was in NJ on business) and you would not believe how many people came up to me; including countless Brazilian fans, and said you guys were robbed and cheated...One Brazilian even fan told me "I am ashamed of what was done to you guys, there was no way FIFA would allow you guys to win and it was very clear that they would not allow Brazil to lose due to all the turmoil in Brazil".......Please do not respond to this comment if you did not watch the game in full, or if you like to ignore the truth/facts. You can watch the game in it's entirety on ESPN3...
