From what I could see, everything looked legit. Not necessarily even for both teams (as Lille was obviously not ready), but that's not Man U's fault. The ref should've had to made a motion or blow his whistle to the defence before the kick so they would know what was coming. However, these quick kicks are not new, and Lille should've been fully aware of that. UEFA needs to learn from this and use this incident to re-evaluate how free kicks are set-up for both teams so we don't have another Hillsborough happen. On another note, the disallowed goal on Lille that led to this whole thing was a good call by the ref, and I've never seen more immature or unprofessional conduct on behalf of a team like what I witnessed with Lille following the goal. Remind me never to go to a match at Lens.

The BCS rankings will probably work out pretty much they way everyone expects them too, but here's how I'd like to see it play out: Ohio St. plays Florida and Michigan plays USC. Further down the list, LSU & Louisville, Wisconsin & Boise St., Oklahoma & Arkansas, Auburn & Notre Dame. But yeah, I expect to see a few teams screwed again this year.

Oooh, that's scary! I wish I could tell more about what was going on. Why were the cops even there in the first place? I about freaked out when the cops all started rushing the fans in the stands and beating the hell out of them.

That's really cool. And it leaves me with a warm and fuzzy feeling too. From everything I've seen UNICEF does a lot of good for kids all over the world that mostly get ignored by the international spotlight. It's enough to make anyone want to cheer for FC Barca.

Karma's a biatch, ain't it Tony? I say Johnson takes the whole thing.
