"The Hand of Frog"

So, once again, the world of sport has proven to me that football is doing it wrong.

Last night's Ireland vs France game, that was a nail biter all the way, was turned into a circus thanks to Thierry Henry's left hand. It was a clear handball, inches from the goal. The Irish were protesting it before the ball hit the back of the net. Everyone saw it, and everyone knows what should've happen. Goal, disallowed. But instead, Ireland were robbed and will now not appear in the next world cup.


If this was rugby, such an incident would never have taken place. Two words: Video ref.

Rugby > Football
