Poor England, couldn't even go out with some consolation like Spain did. They certainly are the Mets of soccer.[/QUOTE]

BTW, I do not like the format of having two games on at the same time at all.

^It's to stop collaboration. They started doing it when Hungary screwed over Algeria by playing for a draw when they'd seen the result of the latter's game.

EDIT: As for Suarez, I feel like the third time is about the point where it should be clear you're not learning and permanent bans start to be issued. I doubt it's going to happen, but it should.

I get why they do it, but I still just hate it. I hate the thought that while I'm watching one game I'm potentially missing something more exciting happening in the other game. Like I think I'm going to have to bring in another TV on Thursday so I can watch the USA/Germany as well as Ghana/Portugal.

And Suarez should at least be banned for the rest of the Cup, if not for games afterwards, or lifetime. **** him.

Messi is a monster.

And we know that, but just sayin'. He also doesn't bite people.

Bites are also extremely dangerous because they're a quick way for dangerous mouth bacteria to get into someone else's bloodstream. Suarez's World Cup should be over.

^I'd argue he should be banned until he gets some form of help, yeah.

So I'm watching Honduras-Switzerland. Anyone wanna like spam me with updates on Ecuador-France?

Halftime for France-Ecuador and nothing's really happening. 0-0. France has had a few opportunities but came up short. Ecuador almost had a nice header go in but it was saved.

Bosnia Herzegovina 3-1 Iran

Nigeria 2-3 Argentina

Ecuador 0-0 France

France fail to take back their goal differential crown from Netherlands/Colombia. Germany are the only side left with any real chance of taking it, but let's all hope they don't.

Honduras 0-3 Switzerland

Honduras is hereby banished to CONMEBOL.

Also I'm pretty sure that Ann Coulter is a confirmed troll but this is probably the worst sports-related thing I've ever read (and I've already read multiple, terrible articles about LeBron's upcoming Decision 2.0)

If it was by anyone else I'd say it was clearly a joke, but you never know with her.

(but for the record, all of my great-grandfathers were born here. So there.)

I refuse to give that page hits. What is she saying? Actually, nevermind, I don't care.

I can't handle this wait right now. Arrrrrrrrgh.[DOUBLEPOST=1403793230,1403793185][/DOUBLEPOST]See ya, Suarez: http://screamer.deadspin.com/fifa-hits- ... 1596401338
