    I've only been watching it intermittently, but I just heard there has been 44 penalties given... what's that all about?

    Uruguay look on their feet here. Guus should bring on Archie, his pace running at that defence without Montero in it.

    Gawd, so close now......

    Shocking decision at the end there about the corner.

    It really did look like we were unlucky not to score a goal there in the second half

    Eh?

    Are you listening to an American commentary or something?

    "And it's Australia on the You Are Gay twentythree yard line, Viduka back to the quarterback Vidmar, he goes long to the wide receiver Kewell, completely in the clear, TOUCHDOWN Australia. Kewell took off and just flew through..... wait, penalty on the play. Kewell for unnecessary roughing of the ground."

    I'm stupid and new to actually watching soccer. If a goal is scored now, is extra time over? Or does it keep going for the whole 30 minutes?

    Well at least CW made it to the third page before someone used the 'you are gay' line.

    Depends on what rule book you use.

    I think FIFA has abolished the sudden death rule, though, because UEFA certainly have. So it keeps going for the whole 30 minutes.

    Edit: Yup. FIFA World Cup regulations, article 17, clause 2: If, in accordance with the provisions of these Regulations, extra time shall be played as the result of a draw at the end of normal playing time, it shall always consist of two periods of 15 minutes each, with an interval of five minutes at the end of normal playing time, but not between the two periods of extra time.

    It's called 'Parody'.

    It was deliberately designed to take the Mickey out of Adamc who said "44 penalties in the game. What's that all about?', an obvious Americanism. The 'You Are Gay' reference is just throwing in the ubiquitous Simpsons reference, which is where I get all of my information about America, naturally.

    Incidentally, I still get all of my information about the North East from watching old "When the booert comes in" reruns.

    Penalties, gah.

    Australia should have scored several times in that second half. It'd be as bad as the Iran game if we didn't qualify from here.
