    Ref letting a lot go.

  2. SanFran415 says:

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

  3. CW in LA says:

    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?

    • ... says:

      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.

    • bryan says:

      check SBI more often. that was common knowledge. lol

  4. petedx says:

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

  5. Kevin_Amold says:

    Wow. Amazing from Nagbe.

  6. ed - houston says:

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

  7. SanFran415 says:

    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.

    • Leo says:

      I can’t believe the announcers were trying to argue otherwise.

      • SanFran415 says:

        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.

  8. Leo says:

    This is some of the worst officiating I’ve ever seen.

  9. petedx says:

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

  10. bryan says:

    lol charra…

  11. Fredo says:

    Worthless Dallas… Worthless

  12. Nate says:

    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 says:

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

  13. Jon says:

    Glad to see him getting minutes, but Wenger had a rough half for Montreal.

  14. chris_thebassplayer says:

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

  15. Nick4235 says:

    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!!!

    Too bad Farrell ruined this VAN-NE game.
