dude bundesliga and MLS have been playing with the jubalani for a year now... no complaints about the ball in those leagues...I voted for Van bommel. I mean, he did that dirty tackles in EVERY match he played, and he never got booked twice. Sometimes he didn't even got booked once!
There were vuvuzelas, the pathetic Jabulani and depressing national teams, but a dirty player like that should have been sent out. Period. No arguing about it. That implies bad referees. Surely you may not see a goal half a meter inside the goal line, that's human. But all the referees have seen him doing his job again and again. Come on.
By the way, I would put Messi out of this list. He did great for what he had around. He set up a lot of the argentina goals and he tried to do something, although he was inmersed in complete chaos.
I strongly suggest to put Maradona in the list instead of Messi, as we all know everything was down to the worst coach I've ever seen.
