Ehhhh, you'd be hard pressed to say the 4 in the semis weren't the 4 playing the best, most consistent football in this tourney.
Beginning to think the match fix talk is more than just talk... seems as if FIFA is getting exactly the matches and excitement they want.
Still not ready to don my tin foil hat yet, but I'm at least open to the idea now.
You could make a case that Brazil was helped to get by Colombia by the ref calling the match fast and loose, but that bit them in the ass losing Neymar.
Go watch how Argentina handled Belgium defensively vs the US did (1 shot on goal vs 26) and you'll see how much higher the overall talent level difference is. This is why the opening odds were close for about 4 or 5 teams and then it fell off a cliff.
Is the fact that Oregon, Alabama, Ohio State, and FSU always finish near the top in CFB a sign of fixed games?
