Bobby- I'm beginning to think you just don't like Brazil.

Yeah it was a hand ball but other players do the same thing and it's up to the refs to see it and call it. Everyone pushes the rules to the limits and yes you call it cheating much like the Italian player diving to gain the penalty kick. Yeah the defender was holding his shirt but that didn't cause him to flop like a fish but bottom line is that it worked and he got his team a goal because of it.

This game got ugly in the last ten minutes- wasn't the worst I've ever seen but pretty close. If the game had 20 minutes left it would have gotten even worse.
