  1. Wow.

    Talk about inconsistent reffing.

    Where was the redcard for condoule let alone the fact that Colorado touched the ball before we did.

  2. isaac i wouldnt call one goal producing, even if it was a beauty. the rapids were sluggish up until the last 30 minutes by which time it was too late to get anything. you have to credit tfc for digging in and doing what they needed to do do win the game especially since so much of the team were reserves or new comers.

  4. Hm….so NOW he produces, not that he wasnt producing at Chicago, its just that it wasnt at a fair rate. Kinda like Alturo Alvarez debuting for San Jose and getting their first win against LA Galaxy in their expansion season. just gets more interesting every day….

  5. Ref is refusing to call the game. A full six minutes of stoppage before he blew the whistle.

    Toronto 1-0 Colorado. Chad Barrett with the goal.

  6. Colorado has been absolutely wasteful with the ball.

    Dichio is slower than Brad Guzan.

    1-0 seems like a fair result. Colorado could think they deserve a tie, but they’ve done very little.

    Two minutes of stoppage left.

  7. Ihemulu shoved Gala to the ground. Both hands on his back and an outright shove. Free kick on the left side of the box to TFC. Results in nothing.

  8. 80th minute yellow to Carl Robinson for a clumsy tackle on H. Gomez. Free kick to Colorado.

    Dichio in for Barrett.

    Cooke’s kick saved my Sutton.

  9. Sutton is being an absolute dick. The ref called a corner kick and Sutton booted the ball into the stands for a yellow card.

  10. The Rapids should fire Fernando Clavijo. He is just a terrible manager, what is this the 3rd season in charge of Colorado? This team is so unorganized. I believe the Rapids turned down an application from Curt Onalfo and chose Clavijo . BIG MISTAKE!!

  11. Colin Clark sent off for his second yellow around the 70th minute. He shouldered Gyan on the TFC endline and Gyan hit the ground and the ad boards hard.

    It looked like a bad call, but the replays suggested Clark did it intentionally.

    TFC has players down all over the field. Ihemulu helps carry Ricketts off the field. Robinson was down. Marshall was injured in the first half.

  12. Indirect free kick on the 6 yard line for TFC. Bouna handled on a back pass. I love these plays. 59th minute.

    Ball is cleared. Still 1-0 TFC on the goal from Chad Barrett.

    Barrett scored around the 40th minute with a free kick from about 25 yards.
