Donovan should get a royalty on that Fabiano goal.

clear Hand ball on Fabiano's goal. Actually, it happen twice. The ref was even jokingly asking him about it. What a moron!
The Kaka red was an horrible call as well.

Cote D'Ivoire changed to Cleats D'Up.

I hadn't seen much acting in the entire WC, and the last 10 minutes of the match made up for that. Kaka's 2nd yellow should be rescinded.

Kaka is an idiot. He could easily have stepped out of the way and not touched the the guy. But he acted like a punk and got what he deserved.

Dunga should take some responsibility for winding up his own team there.

Clearly 2 handling offenses on that 2nd goal. And that guy flops around like an Italian. It's hard to like a team that acts like that. Especially when they clearly don't need to.

I watched Brasil vs. Cote D'Ivoire from the Court House Velocity 5, which is a decent alterntaive to the nearby Summers, Kitty O'Shea's, and Ireland's Four Courts, in case those more familiar joints are overflowing on Wednesday morning.

I really looked forward to that last game and the funny thing is that it had the goals and all, but it left a sour taste in my mouth. The diving and simulating was pathetic. Ivory Coast went thug and Brazil went ultra on them and the game just started to suck.

The ref had the gull to joke about the double hands-ball goal and Kaka being sent off was rather disappointing.

Kiwis and divers was the game of the day, who would have thunk it?

The guy walked into him, and Kaka didn't even see him.

Actually, Keita walked into Kaka's elbow.

Should be a yellow card apiece: Kaka for the elbow, Keita for the horrible acting.

And I agree, Dunga deserved some of the blame...
