    Been watching the world cup and I can't believe how inconsistent their calls are.

    So to me it's football/soccer.

    Soccer
    Basketball
    Baseball
    Football

    Futbol for sure. I mean... some calls are just blatantly obvious, yet they just swallow their whistles for some unknown reason...

    It just seems that a soccer field is entirely too large to be officiated by three people.

    this entire tournament has been poorly officiated, no question.

    i still vote basketball, because the euro leagues and what i've watched of MLS seem to be more fairly called as opposed to the refs in the NBA

    It's certainly a factor but I doubt it's always teh case.

    NBA rules are more complicated I guess. Euro is close to standard rules.

    Soccer - worldwide gamblers
    Football - most sports fans in America watch, and put it all on their team
    Baseball - second most watched sport in America
    Basketball - still a lot of corruption

    Basketball. Don't think there's enough going on to excuse a genuinely bad foul call. And I've never understood the extra step on traveling.

    I was watching Wimbledon the other day. Man those refs are ridiculous!

    Basketball's probably the worst. It's not just at the NBA level, college refs are pretty atrocious too. American Football's the best. Despite everything that's gone on this year, I think baseball's generally officiated fairly well, with some notable exceptions.

    Don't watch enough soccer outside of the World Cup to cast judgement.

    basketball by far. bad officiating isnt really that common in league football games, just that this world cup is full of them.

    What sets football apart from the rest of sports is the use of technology. They make mistakes but quite often correct them by use of replay. Sports like the nba just. Give officials far too much control with absolutely no accountability

    Basketball is really a fast sport and has a lot to do with judgment as opposed to football .

    My opinion of biggest whiners and complainers have changed with the few highlights I have seen of the world cup.

    1.Futbol
    2. Basketball

    There was so much flopping I thought the Jazz had all decided to play soccer.

    This is where you're wrong. You need to watch actual games and lots of it rather than just highlights. It's even worse than you think.

    Also a soccer dive is far more spectacular than a basketball flop. Not even the baddest sniper rifle could make players fall like a soccer dive.
