Way to go, RSL! If you reckon by points per match rather than by points, then RSL are in second place in the MLS.

Current table (combined east and west) in terms of points per match:
LA Galaxy 2.00
Real Salt Lake 1.78
Seattle Sounders FC 1.76
FC Dallas 1.59
Columbus Crew 1.41
Philadelphia Union 1.39
Sporting Kansas City 1.38
Colorado Rapids 1.37

Beautifully placed ball by Beckerman. Easy finish for Borchers.

Thanks RSL for taking some of the sting out of the BYU debacle.

I watched the highlights on mlsnet.com and replayed the goal a couple of times and it looked to me like Borchers was slightly offside for his goal.

Slightly offside...who cares. That's like saying BYU was slightly overplayed. A win is a win and there is no good angle on mlsnet.com that would give you a hint of being offside

The last angle that is shown on mlsnet.com shows pretty clearly that Borchers was mostly past the last defender when Beckerman took the free kick. There might have been a little overlap with some of Borchers' body and the last defender. The analogy to the BYU-Utah game makes little or no sense. If the ref made the offside call on the Borchers' play, then RSL probably doesn't win. In the BYU-Utah game, no single play made the difference in all of the game. A plethora of plays would have to be changed for the outcome of that game to be different.

In most games there are a few calls that could be or not be offside. Sometimes it goes your way and sometimes it doesn't. If it was offside we will probably have it made up another time where it goes against us.
