In New England, the Revolution begin life without Shalrie Joseph as they take on a Sporting Kansas City side that will try to avoid the distraction of playing a U.S. Open Cup Final in four days.

  1. This Guy says:

    Andrew Wenger becomes a star tonight.

  2. Tony in Quakeland says:

    Speaking as a neutral observer, Dc United games this year tend to be entertaining. Not necessarily pretty or well played, but entertaining…

  3. Hesyourlifelight says:

    Crew playing pretty scrappy, not dirty, but a lot of fouls.

  4. Fus says:

    MLS officiating up to par tonight in Montreal.

  5. hogatroge says:

    RC to Jack Mac was uncalled for and disgraceful. Sticking up for your teammates shouldn’t be punished, and a push is nowhere near as offensive as a headbutt to the face.

    Didn’t see how Philly played up to that point, but they deserved the man advantage after that altercation.

  6. VJM says:

    +1000

    That call blew the match. I see no reason for JMac’s. Should be overturned.

  7. hogatroge says:

    I’d like to see Rivas try that against a more physical team.

    He’s a pretty big guy, but I could see an Eric Hassli laying him out.

  8. Kevin_amold says:

    Colorado deserve to win this game, but something doesn’t seem quite right with RSL. Can’t put my finger on it.

  9. MiamiAl says:

    Chris Pontius delivers another decisive goal for DC United. Klinsmann should be calling him in at some point.

  10. Ben says:

    no width/pace in the midfield…they are too stubborn to add any players

  11. Jake says:

    Impressive without Di Vaio in the lineup.
