Poll: Off With Their Heads

In March I wrote about the price of representing one’s national team. But this week, that has all new meaning, as Montolivo’s injury not only rules him out of the World Cup, but he will be out up to six month, impacting Milan’s season as well. And Balotelli's muscle injury seems to be worse now, too. All of this for playing a meaningless friendly ahead of the World Cup. Was it worth it? Should FIFA still allow these kinds of matches so close to a big competition? Some people think that heads are gonna roll.

Horrific injury, horrific timing... was the game really necessary?

What do you think? Take the poll and then please share your thoughts in the comments.
