Yeah, that's what I think too, hence the ''I'm not saying Robben should've won it'' bit. I don't know who should've won, but in my eyes Messi wasn't the right one.

Robben and all the divers (ruling out most of the Brazil side) should have been excluded from the running of Player of the Tournament as something needs to be done. Same as with getting a slight tap on the knee and going down holding their face and rolling around like they have been shot.

Amen, brothah!
My brother and I were talking about this as well. In the last NHL post-season, Gregory Campbell went down to the ice to block a shot and the puck struck him in the leg. In obvious agony, he slowly got up and continued playing - blocking passes, disrupting the opposing offense, etc... When he was finally able to get off the ice it was discovered that his leg was broken. From what I've seen on the pitch, the injured player would probably still be writhing in pain and extra time would still be going on. Shameful.

To the fountain of perpetual mirth, let it roll for all its worth. And all the children boogie.

It wasn't a great game, but nor was it a bad one. So glad it didn't go down to penalties. Penalties are really no better than a coin toss. The Germans deserved it in the end as the better team, rather than what we saw with too many countries this time around - weak teams with one or two standout players. Germany were a team. And, in the end, they gave us the most unexpected and thrilling 90 minutes of the whole tournament - it just wasn't the final. We can't have everything!

Pretty much sums up how I felt about it: 2-1 after extra time would have made it more entertaining though.
