The "Scroll Wheel Incident"
Almost bigger news than the World Cup itself was the famed "Scroll Wheel Incident," which occured in Round II when Belgium and USA agreed to a mutual PiC, or so they thought. When the match had ended, it was clear that Belgium had not PiCed, and USA users were outraged. GM-Moons, manager of the Belgian National Team at the time, issued a statement saying that he was "very sorry" and that the failure to Play it Cool was "due to a Scroll Wheel incident." The majority of USA users didn't believe him at first, but after time went by, it became clear to everyone that whether or not he meant to do this, he was clearly sorry it happened. The USA was eliminated from the World Cup due to this incident, and some USA users still hold a grudge against Belgium because of it. The decision by ArdentEnthusiast to PiC a match that was a "must win" for the USA was controversial in itself.
