Where Do They Get These Refs?

If you haven't heard by now team USA got robbed of a victory against Slovenia last Friday.  The go ahead goal was disallowed by referee Koman Coulibaly.  It was first believed to be a bad offsides call but was soon called an unspecified foul.  USA star Landon Donovan said, "We asked Coulibaly many times who it was on or what the foul was, and he wouldn't or couldn't explain it."  FIFA officials have been hush hush about the controversial call but have removed referee Coulibaly from officiating further world cup games.  This is one of many bad officiating calls this world cup has already seen from bad offside calls to premature yellow and red cards.
