Sure, what Henry did was utterly idiotic. But no need to burn and burn and burn him, everyone makes mistakes. He deservedly lost respect for what he did, but it is what it is, stuff happens. The Irish this time were unlucky.

BBC Sport - Football - Ireland need to get over it - Keane

ultimately the man is right.

Exactly, they were unlucky but that's football, just got to move on from it.

I didn't like that umpiring decision in the dying seconds that gave Collingwood the goal against my Adelaide Crows in the 2009 AFL semi final, but I moved on from that pretty quickly.

to be fair if that had happened in the egypt-algeria match i think at this point the UN would probably be involved and just about every other peacekeeping body!

Fair call that actually

Maybe if it were the Bahrain vs Saudi Arabia playoff a few months back then...

But that attitude is essentially saying cheating doesn't matter, all that matters is what team has the highest score on the scoreboard at the end of the match. Why bother having any rules in the game?

Now granted, the Irish response to Maradona's handball against England in the 1986 World Cup was generally to laugh uproariously, but that isn't the point.

Because we now know clearly that soccer has no credibility whatever. We can see now that soccer is a profoundly corrupt activity, with no purpose except to make money for people like Thierry Henry and his masters.

It’s a fix, and anyone who doubted it before now would need to have another hard look at the facts. Any sport that is unable to correct blatant cheating, caught on camera for the entire world to see, doesn’t deserve to be called a sport.

It deserves to be called a scam, and that’s exactly what the World Cup is. A fraud.

Surely Henry is now the most hated man in soccer, and will be ... for a long while.

How the hell does a side let someone like De Foe hit the back of the net 5 times?! Poor play Wigan.
