    Default World Cup Soccer Added

    Seeing as USA is competing in the soccer World Cup 2014 - I thought for a bit of fun we could guess the scores on the forum. The system will keep track of everyone's scores and the winner of the most points gets a prize!

    0 Points for a completely wrong bet
    1 Points for a properly guessed match winner
    2 Points for a correctly guessed match winner and goal difference (Winning team/Losing team)
    3 Points for a exactly guessed match result

    Good luck England! (and the USA .... )

    I made my bets, I had absolutely no idea what I was doing, but it should be lots of fun!

    I am sorry my friend, but the Three Lions haven't been much of a team for awhile. Can't wait for the England vs Italy group match.

    I'm all in .. but I'm a nut case for watching 'footie.' Played the 'Great Game' for many years. Goalie .. no one wanted to be in front of the net .. and I wasn't all that swift on my feet anyway.

    Also Reffed (35 plus years) and the UK version of this Fora refer game questions to me for 'interpretation.' May sound silly but a current "Law's of the Game" is inches from my hand.

    As the Center Ref my best Match ever was the 'Winner takes all' in a U10 match local competition. Teams from four different States and you had to be damned good to get into the last round.

    Teams/Coaches/Parents in the center circle and I 'explained' how much I hated to blow my whistle..... "Don't make me go there!"

    "NO FOUL, PLAY ON!"

    And Dear God did they ever. No memory of who won, but for 70'ish minutes these young men ran their hearts out. Only one real stoppage as a player was laying on the ground 50 yards behind me and the Parent's were aware I had no clue.

    Amazing how fast you can shut down a game when needed and Mom/Dad gets your attention.

    I played football/soccer since I was 8 years old. Played the goalkeeper, right fullback, centre back and defensive midfielder (I like to tackle).

    I Haven't played for awhile now but I liked the idea of NO FOUL, PLAY ON unless it is a bad one. I had a 190cm Yugoslavia guy scissored me down when I played for my college team in Australia, I thought that I had broken my left ankle when feel down in slooow motion.

    Most Officials really don't communicate with the Players/Coaches pre-match as what's going to happen/not going happen over the next 90'ish minutes.

    Most Officials are 'afraid' to pull out their cards and get peoples attention. I was not. First 'yellow' usually only took 5 minutes for someone to do something stupid. Example: Free kick and you give/back off 10 yards (that's 30 feet and a hell of a long way) and 'snuffle-snuffle-shuffle' and 4 or 5 at best.

    Actually did this at a 'winner takes all' Tournie. Asked them to move back and zip ..... Issued six of them yellow cards. That point on, if/when, I blew my whistle everyone got the hell out of the way.

    It's usually those who know nothing about the sports end up with better predictions.
