Time and time again this ref ignored several blatant take down fouls. So frustrating to see all of this and now to know that the ref had only 16 games under his belt.

Having Beltran, Rimando and Beckerman gone has finally taken its toll. Great game but disappointing loss at the end.


I am not really a fan, but I did watch this game and it was apparent to even me that the official was really struggling. RSL got hosed!

It appears to me that the ref didn't make calls for RSL that should have been made and extended the game long enough for SKC to win. I think he got the outcome that he wanted.

the worse call the ref blew was Wingert's cheapshot on Kamara in the first 10 seconds of the game. That one should have been a red card (instead of just a yellow) and then RSL would have been playing with only 10 men the whole game.

You can see it in the ref's face when he is originally coming onto the field. Even he knew he was in over his head.

Cheap shots? Where was Foerster when time after time #20, Rossell pulled cheap shot after cheap shot and was barely even blinked at.

I will add that it's disturbing the number of slugs that felt it necessary to throw bottles and garbage on the field after the match. True RSL fans would not go there. And the Team does not claim those who did.

But then, when "Sporting" players (sarcasm font) stand on the pitch and egg the crowd on, knowing the game was totally blown by an incompetent ref, slugs will do as slugs do. Sad.

Wingert should have been shown a red, i think someone else should have been playing instead of him by the looks of it. And the person who pushed Borchers at the end of the match should have been shown his second yellow. What a crazy match, i loved the action and fire from the players but maybe it got too out of hand. What's with the match going into the 98th minute? It was only supposed to be 5.... Generally matches are called just a bit after the added time, not minutes after.
