EDIT: Yup, there are definitely end-line officials.
They are starting to test the technology now. They are experimenting with some clubs in England, apparently with something in the balls. Yes, FIFA have something in their balls at last!

I think it was one of the end line officials that caught lampards knee to the back in the CL semifinal, wasn't it?

Yeah, that was my point. Sorry I didn't mean to suggest that anyone here was putting the Antigua team down.

About the goal line officials, I've definitely noticed them. They're actually pretty funny when two guys are battling for a ball near the endline. The official is right there only a few yards from the action, bent at the knees, watching with ultra concentration.

Does anybody know where the new officials authority ends? They obviously wear a headset to communicate with the center official. But in addition to making goal line decisions, do they also make endline in-or-out decisions, goal kick v corner kick decisions, call in fouls to the center official, etc?

HA! That's when I first noticed the endline official: sweet footwork and boxing out in the 18 with the official staring them down

I think the endline officials jurisdiction is action in the 18: in/out of bounds (and, thus, corner vs goal kick), fouls in the box, goal determination. I may be wrong but that's what I've noticed.

The referee makes all the decisions based on the advice of the other officials. He can ignore them if he's stupid enough.

Hmmm... okay so it's almost game-time. Time to predict another USMNT match! (Just like Paul the Octopus. RIP you sweet invertebrate.)

vs

Guatemala 1 - 2 USA

The Yanks are going to have a hard time keeping their attack contained when Guatemala is known for flopping if you breathe on them wrong. Same applies for the American attack: too strong going forward and Guatemala draws fouls so the US is held to two.

I hope I'm wrong and the Yanks run up the score but I'm going middle-ground.

I am just so bitter about the PPV situation. I hope traffic/integrated sports lose a boatload of money on this.

Ugh. That was everything a match in GC should be expected to be. The ref had a good first half before playing most all of the second.


And OMG Altidore.

Yeah apparently you can foul almost every time you get beat, roll around like you've been shot every time you get touched, stand in front of every free kick, complain on every call you don't get, and still only get 2 yellow cards.

Altidore literally scored on a play that should have been continued for advantage(the goalie might have saved it if the whistle hadn't blown), and the Guatemalan player still didn't get a yellow for the foul on dempsey at the top of the box. If you're going to stop that play, you better ****ing book the guy. And to make it worse, Fabian Johnson committed a foul at almost the same spot that led to their goal, and of course he got booked.

Also, to be fair to Jozy, he definitely got brought down in the box on one play. Of course the Guatemalan feed didn't show a replay.
