The tv feed missed that Friday night when the game was live. You only saw after the fact when Campbell was on the ground. Yesterday, it started to come out that there were other angles of what hapened and it was a clear dive. I don't understand the point. It wasn't in the box, and the action wasn't near where this happened. It just seems stupid.

(He hasn't even kicked a ball for Arsenal yet and I already find myself hating the guy.)

As I said, stuff like that needs to be heavily sanctioned.

FIFA continues to allow this to happen by not instituting a retroactive suspension/fine policy for dives. How hard would it be to look at that and suspend Campbell for a game.

If there's no financial gain in it Papa Blatter ain't interested.

I see NASCAR on Sportcenter this morning talking about the "integrity of the sport" and fining a guy for spinning his car out on purpose or purposely taking a pit stop when he shouldn't have or something along those lines. If NASCAR is willing to hand out punishment to keep the integrity of their "sport", then I see no reason soccer and fifa shouldn't do the same. These dives are getting more and more ridiculous and with every angle imaginable catching these things, why not give the dude a couple game suspension. If fifa doesn't couldn't concacaf do it?

I would be OK if the fines (along with a suspension) for a clear cut dives went directly into Blatter's pocket.

Normally, I would agree but I really don't care for Blatter.

Italy and Holland booked their tickets. Bosnia with a huge bounce-back victory in Slovakia after losing at home to them on Friday.

I have a soft spot for Bosnia, because I know so many Bosnians, including my neighbors.

Correct, they are sitting pretty nice right now. I think the fourth-place team faces NZ in a playoff??? Mexico needs the win far more than we do.

Yes, NZ. I'm pretty sure they'd much rather face Honduras than Mexico.

I don't know if it's me or the sport, but every year, international soccer gets worse and worse to watch. I used to love it. Now it just bothers me.

I enjoy watching soccer, but the diving really gets to me. It's pervasive.

That and the lack of people around me don't watch it keeps me from getting truly invested in the sport. But, diving infuriated me as a player and continues to infuriate me as a spectator.

Pretty solid win for the US in the end. Mexico had chances early, but they didn't really do anything for the whole 2nd half. Klinsmann needs to sit Dempsey down and explain Donovan is taking PKs again. He was really lucky that PK against Costa Rica went in.
