    NBC Experts Analyze Canada's Melissa Tancredi Stomping On Carli Lloyd's Head

    I thought this one deserved its own thread....an unsportsman like act like this is about as low as it gets....word is Tancredi may not be able to play in Canada's Bronze Medal Game as it appears FIFA is involved....hell she should not be playing in any games for Canada for quite sometime for this....

    Looks like the media in the USA is finally starting to pick this up....have not seen any press on this in Canada...I suspect we will not unless she is suspended....


    Watch it here:

    More:

    Yet Tancredi still felt it reasonable to accuse referee Christina Pederson of fixing the match to her face during the game. From the Toronto Sun:
    When asked what she said to Pederson after the call [that led to the penalty], she said: "I hope you can sleep tonight and put on your American jersey because that's who you played for today. I was honest."

    Have you seen the brutal stomp from Canada’s Melissa Tancredi on Carli Lloyd’s head?

    The bold nails it....like I said this one is just starting to take off....


    Looks like most of us missed this one. Lost (for me, at least) in the dramatic hullabaloo of it all, and in my flying-fingers effort to explain some of soccer’s laws in context, I completely missed Melissa Tancredi’s brutal indiscretion during the second half of Monday’s U.S.-Canada match.

    No question this stomp, in the 55th minute Monday, should have been a straight red – and probably would have been so if spotted by any of the match officials.

    If nothing else, this should quiet any of the conspiracy silliness, or the allegations of match fixing. Because if there was ever a justifiable way for a referee to reduce one side to 10 men, this would have been it.

    This blows my mind, all day they keep talking about the 6 second hold but only touch the head stomp.
