Wrong explanation for Worst Call of the World Cup

A British ref writes:

Modern soccer has turned the penalty area into a wrestling ring, and that’s what cost the United States victory in its World Cup match against Slovenia on Friday.

This is beyond asinine. If refs only call fouls on the offending teams (by the way, I only saw fouls on that play against Slovenia…whereas Walter Samuel was bearhugging a Nigerian defender on the first Argentine goal by Heinze), then the behavior continues. The only way you deter this behavior is by calling fouls against defenders, as well as against the offense. Until now, there has been no lack of calling fouls against the offense.

That explanation for the World Call of the World Cup is beyond stupid.
