They will likely still win. I watched the "foul" on the news last
night. It was not flagrant in any way. Should not have been called and would not
have been called on the other team. The quality of referees in all professional
soccer varies quite a bit and they are worse "homers" than the NBA

@Menace...flopping in soccer has its origins from the NBA. See Dennis Rodman,
Vlade Divac, and Bill Laimbeer for specifics.
Menace to society is feeling a little insecure about all of this soccer
Another player just flopped.
This is a "really big deal". It shows the advancement of U.S.
football (soccer). Here in St. Louis, we were once the "bell cow" of
soccer in the U.S. Now, we are not even involved in the Gold Cup in June.
Kansas City is. The rule in question here should probably be modernized
somehow. However, this was the "second yellow", which means that he
had a previous infraction. Wayne Rooney in the Champions League in Europe was
accused of taking an "intentional second yellow" in an inconsequential
game so that it would not affect his participation. That means that there are
ways to "outsmart" the rule. He was told that he would miss a key
game and would be suspended. He got a lawyer and appealed. He won the appeal
because they couldn't prove the charges. Meanwhile, he is playing in the
semifinals next week without a problem. The best to Salt Lake.
this is team worth watching. Go RSL!!!
It's a shame that he'll miss the game on a questionable call.Beckerman is the man and I've got all the respect in the world for him. Check
out what he did for the coolest little guy ever - search "Jonah Make a
Wish" on youtube and watch the 2:18 video from ABC4. Beckerman shows the
kind of character that we wish more sports stars had.
Sad that RSL has had a midfielder miss a championship game before. After a
terrible tackle by Beckham, Morales was too hurt to continue in the MLS cup.
However, RSL has the depth and resolve to win at home.
Weird that a soccer player would flop like that.
