Angry Koreans attack

What will you do when you feel that your country was unfairly eliminated from the World Cup? Well, get millions of your fellow citizens to bombard of course. From
Korean newspaper Joong-Ang Daily reported that 4.2 million Koreans bombarded after one particularly disgruntled fan organized a petition suggesting FIFA would have to replay the Switzerland-South Korea match if 5 million people complained.

The newspaper noted that FIFA president Sepp Blatter came from Switzerland.

FIFA's new media department "detected this organized attack coming from Korea and, basically, had to block the messages from Korea to to protect the Web site," FIFA spokesman Pekka Odriozola said Sunday. "It was the FIFA site involved -- the World Cup Web site was OK.

What bunch of poor losers the South Koreans are!

The way the South Korean team has been playing? They deserve to have been eliminated earlier.
