World Cup Notes: Online Petition Draws 20,000 Signatures To Remove NZ Referee

An online petition "has already drawn 20,000 signatures to remove New Zealand referee Peter O'Leary from the World Cup after an image appeared of him 'celebrating' with Nigeria goalkeeper Vincent Enyeama." In the aftermath of the game, Man City striker Dzeko said O'Leary's performance was "shameful" (NZ HERALD, 6/24). ... FIFA TV, which provides live World Cup images for the global TV audience, "displayed the wrong graphic which indicated Brazil's third goal in their 4-1 win over Cameroon was offside." Striker Fred "headed home after 49 minutes but millions of viewers thought the assistant referee had made the wrong call because during the replay FIFA TV showed the offside line from the position of a Cameroon player and not the Brazil striker" (REUTERS, 6/24).
