Everyone knows that FIFA is corrupt, but its rules also need to be reformed if "the beautiful game" is not going to turn into a mish-mash of lawyers, actors and cry-babies.
Robben's dive at the end of yesterday's NL-MX match definitely got the Dutch a free penalty kick and maybe won them the game (a 1-1 game would have gone to extra time, etc.)
It was pretty pathetic:
That bad call (Robben claims he was really fouled) gave the Dutch a sour 2-1 win, but that win resulted in record-crazy at Museumplein (central Amsterdam):
It would have been sweeter is the Dutch had won fair and square.
Bottom Line: FIFA should require video-confirmation of controversial calls that result in penalty shots.
