Oh right, just like any sports and entertainment?

And it does make a difference, regardless if it doesn't make a difference in your life. Thanks for speaking for everyone though.

Yup, so that's why it's not worth getting excited about.

Not worth it, I agree. Mindless entertainment. I agree. But it can be fun, though.

FIFA looking into the comments made by the Canadian women's team... But not into the horrible officiating.

What a big flop for Canadian divers. Depatie finishes with probably the worst dive of his career.

What a ****ing joke FIFA is if they penalize them even further than the ref did during the game.

I just thought it was crazy to see a rule I had never seen before get called. I'm used to watching Italy play, Buffon sure loves to hold the ball and dictate what he wants his players to do (he is the captain afterall) but he can hold that ball easily for 15 seconds.

An oblivious call at a crucial moment sure makes me feel uneasy about the whole situation.

His jump-off was screwed and instead of entering the water in a straight line, his legs were parallel with the water. Scored 2.5's. He took it all in stride though and was laughing about it afterwards. Just a sad way to end your Olympic career.

That game yesterday reminded me of Byron Moreno. Terrible officiating screwed Canada big time. Should have been a yellow to the goalie for time wasting, not an indirect free kick

Two straight horrible boxing decisions.

Of course one if favor of the favorite who was clearly outclassed and one in favor of the Brit, who again was outclassed and should have actually lost a point.

This is why no one should really care about the Olympics and medals. Its amateur athletes being judge by glorified "judges."

The canadian fight shouldn't have even gone to a count back..........the referee gave the Brit 2 warnings about holding his opponents head down ,and when he gave him the THIRD warning it should have been a point deduction (according to Russ Ember doing the color for the fight)

Wonder if Canada filed a protest? Going by the refs actions 3x with the same warning to the Brit they should have had a case"..........

Maximilian wins silver for Germany in the cycling - singles male event. Came close to battling the Brit in the final moments but couldn't catch him. Still proud.
