    I didn't get to see it.

    But from the highlights it looked like 3 of Spain's 4 goals were clearly offsides.

    Why wasn't that called?

    Meh... you play the game long enough, I'd say that's pretty even across the board.

    I mean, no one's saying you don't know NFL rules. You know?

    Not necessarily. The change/update the rules from time to time, especially the offside rule has been change frequently in recent years.
    And that messes with ppl who's been "playing the game long enough". Everything is not as they're used to.

    Not that you don't know the rules, just he (presumably) would know them better.
