They should remove the captain's band from Kyle Beckerman until he can
prove to be a team player. Three red cards in one season is not acceptable. In
Kyle's defense, I love his fire. I love his passion. I love his effort
and ability to finish. He's an incredible player and one of my RSL
favorites. But, until he can prove to control his emotions on the field,
he's not particularly a good fit for captain. With a man down, we lost all
that attacking momentum (right when a spirited, passionate Espindola entered the
game no less), and had to form a defensive shell. We could have won
3 -0 or 4-0 last night with the momentum and passion we had pushing forward.
RSL was not backing down; not last night! Goal differential is HUGE in CCL
play. This isn't only about three points. It's also about goal
differntial! Kyle knows that!! This may come back to bite us.
