If I was a RSL fan I’d be really pissed right now. Getting a lucky goal, then playing keep away for 40 minutes. Never even going for a second.
Worst ref in the league. Missed at least 10 calls. Not even talking the judgment ones which I’d argue he blew about 10 as well. He just missed things. A ball kicked of a guys chest that goes 60 degrees the other way and he doesn’t see it? That guy has to go.
Ives, any idea why your employer abandoned “Soccer Night in America” on the final night of the season? The one night I really would be interested to see a game with playoff implications?
