Get over it already…

Many days have passed since the United States was “robbed” of a victory in their last match against Slovenia.
Although it has been days since the referee potentially ruined one of the greatest comebacks in World Cup history for the Americans, the U.S. can’t seem to forget about it.
Players and fans alike were upset that the winning goal was waved off because of a fouled called before hand.
The fact of the matter is that it is the American’s fault for putting themselves in that scenario to begin with. Sub par play in the first half put them in a 2-0 hole that they proved was too much to overcome.
If the U.S. had played better defense, the difference between a victory and a draw wouldn’t have been left to the whistle of the referee to begin with.
Don’t blame the whistle for your shortcomings. The only ones to blame are the people in the American mirrors.
Landon Donovan and Tim Howard need focus on the task at hand, not the past.
