They Scored A Goal, But The Ref Disallowed It For The Strangest Of Reasons

Accrington Stanley scored against Wimbledon right at the end of the first half. But that was the problem. It was the end of the half. The half was over. The referee had blown his whistle.

The referee had blown his whistle literally a moment before the ball crossed the line, nullifying the goal. The Accrington Stanley players were understandably pissed.

Cristiano Ronaldo Nets Four, Earns A Place In History (Video)

Fans in the Santiago Bernabeu stadium may have had to wait, but in the end weren't disappointed by Cristiano Ronldo and Real Madrid's 7-1 victory against Celta Vigo.

It was a quiet first half for Los Blancos, with just a single goal netted by Pepe. After the break, Cristiano Ronaldo appeared on track for a stinker of a game and the crowd grew restless, issuing whistles and catcalls as Ronaldo made another poor pass.

A Team Of Thugs Is In First Because It Bullies Amateurs Into The Ground

I wouldn’t want anything to do with Canales 2010. Have you heard of “winning the game in the pre-game tunnel?” Well, check out how to win a game without even having to lace up:

A Typo Allowed This Man To Earn An Extra $21,000 A Week For Years

Over the course of a 13-year professional career, Jimmy Bullard appeared for 8 different clubs across the English football league system. Due to a contractual misprint, the most lucrative stint of his professional career came during his time with Hull City. 

Neymar Is Destined To Be Better Than Messi, Says Premier League Star

The admiration and mutual respect that Philippe Coutinho and Neymar have for each other’s game is no secret. They’ve been close friends for almost 10 years now, their friendship dating all the way back to the time of embarrassing bathroom selfies, a formative point for anyone in their awkward teenage years. 

A Napoli Youngster Lost His Mom. So His Team Smothered Him With Hugs After A Sweet Goal.

Dries Mertens is having a fantastic year, and now he can check “perform heartwarming celebration off of his list.” The Belgian winger is currently one of the best attackers in Italy, and while his goal-scoring record (8 in 22 across all competitions) might not not convince you of this, he has played a large roll in putting Napoli at the top of Serie A.

He and his teammates have scored a league leading 45 goals so far. That’s 6 more than the second leading scoring team, Fiorentina, and firmly establishes Napoli as the most potent attack in Italy.

Andy Halliday Scored A Goal. What The Ref Did Next Shocked Everybody

I'm going to come right out and say it: Andy Halliday is a bad person.

The Rangers midfielder scored a goal in Rangers' 2-0 victory over Morton, and then did something so horrible the ref had no choice but to toss Halliday out of the game.

In 2006, Ronaldinho Said He Would Introduce Kobe To The Best Player Of All Time. It Was Messi

Kobe Bryant has retired, and as much as basketball fans will miss him and his unadulterated desire to win, we all now get to experience what I like to call “Victory Lap Kobe.” Victory Lad Kobe sells out stadiums everywhere he goes, because even the away fans of his most hated rivals still want to see the legend one in action last time.

Victory Lap Kobe has a certain appreciation of everything that’s going on around him because he knows everything he does could end up being the last time he does it, and he might not even know it at the time.

This Striker Shot The Ball 15 Yards Right Of Goal. His Curve Put It In The Back Of The Net.

Samuel Eto’o and I first met in FIFA 10. I am not ashamed to say this. I was new to the game and he was really fast and could finish. It was a match made in heaven. Not to mention, that this was before I started to follow professional soccer with the eye of someone who writes about the sport for a living. Little did I know then how much of a baller Eto’o really was in real life. I didn’t know that he was on Barcelona before he won the treble for Inter. I didn’t know that he once lined up along side Lionel Messi and Ronaldinho in attack for Barcelona.

How Does Brady vs Manning Compare To Messi vs Ronaldo?

Sunday marks what could be the end of an era, as the NFL sees two of its greatest players face off for likely the final time: Brady vs Manning.

NFL fans around the world should realize how lucky they've been to have watched two of football's greatest players. (The same thing said of David Bowie by Twitter's @JeSuisDean holds true for this rivalry: "If you're ever sad, just remember the world is 4.543 billion years old and you somehow managed to exist at the same time as Brady vs Manning.")
