Alternate - It's RSL, not RLS. And anyone who would change the channel in
disgust is miles away from being a true fan. Go somewhere and be embarrased. The
rest of us will stand by our team, as we have done for years, up or down.Were there mistakes made? Absolutely! Silly mistakes. Mistakes that cost
us dearly. But I have yet to see any team or individual reach the level
perfection that so many "fans" seem to think should just always be the
norm. Everybody has their day on both sides of that fence.At this
point our boys need to buck up, take their licks, and continue the consistent
quality of play they are admired for. And they will. They aren't where they
are in the standings due to luck.
The game on Saturday will determine how important this all is. It's too bad
RSL couldn't have put LA down, but there are still a lot of games to play.
I am sorry but the loss does hurt RLS. Big time. To say it doesn't is
stupid. It is an embarrassment. How many statements were made at the water
coolers about wasting time and money to go to that game. I was part of a
discussion about changing TV channels out of disgust. More importantly, the
three lost points can never be recovered. Down the road, 3 extra points at
seasons end is like gold for most teams.It now appears there is
something worse in soccer than a "kissing your sister" tie.
