Here it is (though it's not great quality), that first goal of Haiti versus Canada that Canadian coach Nick Dasovic was so unhappy with.
I know a lot of our readers have played soccer, and I'm curious as to what their definition of "fair play" is. Would you have kicked the ball back to Canada if you were playing them? If you were Canada, would you have assumed that you'd get the ball back, or be on your guard just in case? What's the value of following the unwritten laws of soccer if the other team breaks them?

Oh, and by the way, does anyone agree with Nick's characterization of his countrymen as "nice, naive Canadians"?
