The real story here is the people that were promised tickets by seven peaks, and there were none. Tey even posted it on Facebook that there was no reason to go early. When we got there, there were fights, one man arrested, one guy chased off property with his kids. It was crazy!

What is considered a "Sell-out". I watched the game on TV and the stadium was over half empty. I would LOVE to see the stadium "sell-out", but please, lets be honest.

Check your facts,eyes and math before you make an arrogant statement like that. Rio Tinto holds 20,000 people. The number of tickets scanned last night 20,415. So I am not sure how you only saw 10,000 people in the stadium when it was full. So there is your honesty.

RSL did everything but score. They simply dominated. They played some beautiful soccer. I couldn't believe how many opportunities we couldn't finish. Midfield A+

The announced attendance is the number of tickets sold. There were empty seats in the stadium but to say it was over half empty is far fetched. As is the case with nearly every game a number of fans were late to the game so at kickoff there were a number of empty seats, but as the first half wore on the stadium was at 90%+ capacity.

Hats off to Robin Fraser and his Chivas USA squad for thwarting our possession style of play. I thought we came out flat the first 20 minutes of the second half and when Chivas scored I knew we were in trouble because they were going to bunker in for the rest of the game. I'm sure some folks will remember that we only managed a late goal against them last year with a 2-man advantage for most of the game.

Referee made some interesting choices like not allowing quick restarts, but I don't think he had much of an affect on the outcome. Chivas got lucky on their goal, 9 times out of 10 Rimando clears that ball and the danger is averted.

You don't think the ref had hand in that game, he stopped a scoring play by calling the ball back to the spot.
