I remember last year, I think, when Casey Keller had the ball hit his glove outside the box, he was given a straight red. Any idea why Saunders didn't get the same treatment? Keane was on it last night, I'm shocked only one goal was scored in the whole game. Hopefully EJ's hamstring isn't too bad. That'll hurt a bit.
Keane was playing out of his mind... should have had a hat trick. Then again, Montero should have had a couple.

As for Saunders, he handled the ball outside the box when there was no clear scoring opportunity. By the Laws of the Game, that's a yellow.

I don't know how you call a last man hack by Ivanovic a "questionable red" whether or not Young embellished the heck out of it. Torres could easily have been shown straight red on his first card, though I agree the yellow for diving was soft. The goal did look offsides.
From the replays I saw, it was more than the goal looked offsides. It was he was very clearly offsides, and it looked like he might have been behind the keeper as well.

I would say Saunders played out of his mind last night. He had an exceptional game. Keane was the Keane you'd expect to see night in and night out. Even Becks had a near miss. The post and
Saunders stopped two for Montero. His save on EJ was outstanding too. It was just a good game between two of the leagues better skilled teams playing some very good soccer. I thought both teams stringed together some good passing series and while the fans in the Seattle paper were screaming about the ref, I don't think he was a factor in the match. Could have ended differently and next time it might.

One thing I think people forgot when the lineups were announced is Arena and Schmidt are very competitive with each other. BOTH want to be known as the best coach in the MLS. Neither wanted a draw last night. It shouldn't hurt Seattle as I think they've figured out RSL. Actually I expect LA and Seattle to play again before this season's over.

I'd say Saunders played out of his mind for 70 minutes. The first 20 minutes he scared the crap out of me... seemed unsure of himself and came out unnecessarily a couple times (including the yellow card play.) But that's probably just my bias based on desperately wanting to end the season strong and being a keeper for years. Saunders did have one great save in that first 20, though.

Good point on Sigi vs Bruce. They always seem to bring out the World Cup-quality strategy and motivation when they face each other.

My playoff predictions. I'm only partially being a homer... I see LA getting to the finals but Sporting is too strong this year:

Knockout Round
LA v Vancouver -- 2-1
Chicago v Houston -- 3-2 a.e.t. (2-2 after 90 minutes)


Western Conference Semifinals
Salt Lake v Seattle -- 4-3 aggregate
San Jose v LA -- 5-7 aggregate

Eastern Conference Semifinals
DC v New York -- 5-6 aggregate
SKC v Chicago -- 5-3 aggregate


Western Conference Final
Salt Lake v LA -- 3-4 aggregate

Eastern Conference Final
SKC v New York -- 6-3 aggregate


MLS Cup Final
SKC v LA -- 2-1

Heh

It's just that Seattle have yet to advance to any stages in playoff history. I'm working on past experiences.

But NY losing in the finals would be brutal... they are still the only original franchise without any major hardware (i.e. MLS Cup, Supporters Shield, CCL) and to come so close would just be heartbreaking. And also a great story to remember the season by
