USA soccer star, Landon Donovan appeared on The Late Show with David Letterman. When asked if FIFA had a bias against the US doing well at the 2010 World Cup, Donovan diplomatically responded ” No Comment. I don’t think so. It’s a tough job to be a Ref. You can’t always blame them. ”
David Letterman immediately retorted ” but they’re [World Cup Refs] crooked aren’t they? ”
[Laughing] ” I don’t think so, but you can say what you want. I’ll get fined for it. ” – Landon Donovan
