Yeah just like the women's gold medal game in the 2002 winter Olympics. Do you remember that? American referee called 12 or 13 straight penalties against Canada and we still won. And the best thing was when Haley Wickenheiser for Canada wanted to know if the American players wanted to sign the Canada flag after they were stepping on it in the dressing room??????? F*&^ing bitches got what they deserved!!!!!!!!
Since you have no sense of humor and refuse to spell italian correctly, you are now insignificant....and obsolete....

She was lucky, the judges were lenient, she should have not even medalled. They took some time to figure that one out.
They were just trying to decide whether to nail her to the cross like she deserved or feel sorry for her and give her a medal. Did you see how they gave a bronze to Ali Raisman after she finished fourth and they appealed? How much money do you figure they slipped the judges? Notice how none of the other gymnasts appealed. What a joke. I love the incredible moves these gymnasts can do, especially the men on the high bar, however, gymnastics will always be controversial like all other judged sports.

Well I guess the refereeing was even in the gold medal game? Did you see the hand ball by the American player in the penalty area straight off the free kick? I guess the ref's head was up her ass when that play happened, same place the ref's head was during the entire US/Canada game. And Hope Solo laughing during the American anthem in the medal ceremony. She knows the gold was an absolute gift from the refs.

The caption above should have read " Maroney falls on her ass on second vault and somehow still captures silver medal. American coach seen slipping money to head judge ".
