MVP

2010/07/03

Definitely Suarez. It seems that the probability of scoring by a penalty kick is ~75% [in pdf], so by stopping the ball with his hand (and being sent off) at the very end of the match he introduced a well known chess trick into football: Sacrificing the Queen in order to win. So far in my lifetime I have seen the hand of God twice, only now it was within the rules.

It is quite probable that the rules of the game will change: In such cases not only the player will be sent off, but the goal will count too.

    It is probable, but I totally disagree. I even disagree with the red card itself.

    The penalty is the ultimate punishment (εσχάτη των ποινών). As such, it doesn’t need anything more. If you cannot score from the penalty, you are imbecile and you deserve to be punished for that, or the oponent is worthy and he deserves to be rewarded.

    What Uruguay did, was a miracle, a legend such that only in football we can see. We’ll always remember Uruguay who gave us these emotions.

    Long live Uruguay! Fight till the end.
