He might be 4th string. Wasn't Terry Boss the backup to Gspurning? I believe he had a concussion which put Webber in.

I totally agree with lgilmore. I played as a fullback throughout middle school and high school. we depended on the keeper watching our backs and constantly yelling for us to push up or pull back. The GK is where experience really counts. Meredith did pretty well yesterday when we needed him, but he wasn't challenged too much by RSL. You can see though that the defense aren't operating under his guidance though. Happy to have a clean sheet finally. It was a good tie game.

Yup. I played keeper for years and by the time I was playing in highschool, if my voice wasn't hoarse at the end of the game I didn't do it right.

Terry Boss retired this season due to frequent concussions. A big part of that 7-1 Man U shellacking the Sounders took was Boss got concussed early on. He was there, but he wasn't.

Seattle played a low pressure game last night designed to help Meridith. Corassco didn't venture forth too much and played a 90% defensive game. While not so much fun to watch, it was a well coached game where Seattle kept it's shape pretty well throughout the match. Had Cato been a half step closer, it would have been 3 points.

Awesome! Goal-line technology has been given the go-ahead by the IFAB. The MLS commissioner said he'd want to get everything set up by next season.

There are two systems that gained approval. One, called "Hawkeye" relies on six high-speed cameras make a 3D image of exactly where the ball is.

The other, called "GoalRef", will implement a weak magnetic field in/around the goal that gets interrupted if the ball (with a small chip in it) crosses the line completely. The center official is informed of a goal by a special match-watch that lights up and vibrates.

Both technologies give results in less than one second.

Personally I'd prefer GoalRef seeing as it gives a yes-or-no answer instead of position.

Yeah I'm pretty sure the tag in the ball would trip the field via induction, a technology that's been in use for years (basically anything you touch to activate, or city intersections that let the lights know a car is there when it rolls over the field) so not a huge leap. And they put chips in players' boots now to track stats... why not the ball?
