    What the #### MLS referees? Referee sees an intentional headbutt and only gives a talking to. COME THE HELL ON.

    I’m a little surprised to see Ricketts playing today (plus I wish I’d known before I set my fantasy team’s lineup, but oh well). Did the Jamaican team release him because they’re clearly not going anywhere?


    • ...

      Jamaica is done with qualifying till September. The Mexico/Jamaica game scheduled for the 18th was moved to the 4th so Mexico could go to the Confederations Cup.

    Timbers really missing Rodney Wallace, Alhassan in his place is a huge step down.


  • ed - houston

    come on!! dallas, get a result, its one of the few times i root for you.


  • SanFran415

    That was completely intentional. Piqionne grabs his arm and then the FC Dallas player swings his arm back above his own head and gets him right in the face.


      • SanFran415

        They just try to placate everything I believe. you knew it was going downhill when the referee did nothing about the headbutt even after his @ssistant told him.


      • Leo

        Credit to Porter for maintaining discipline in his squad. I would’ve lost it.


  • petedx

    Wow, wish Peru had another qualifier, ’cause Portland could have 3 or 4 if not for Fernandez.


  • Nate

    Dived Ferriera was in rare form today. Ref was in completely over his head today. Missing egregious fouls and handballs but making phantom calls left and right. I would’ve booked Chara about half an hour earlier and how Loyd and Jackson were still on the pitch (and not even booked!?!?) at the end is entirely befuddling. Maybe back to ref school for awhile.


    • Brian

      Lloyd could be sent off in almost every match he plays. His only skills are acting and throwing his body at people.


  • chris_thebassplayer

    Lenny trying to dodge the DC by going undercover as Adam Jahn…awesome goal.


  • Nick4235

    I don’t care that Agudelo is probably heading to Europe next Winter. That trade was freaking awesome for the Revs.

    The Revs are really young too. Average starting lineup is 23.27 years old with oldest player at 27.

    As I type this…Rowe!!!
