Yeah I think the player may have distracted the ref by overacting on the hand slap to the face. That wasn't much. The ankle had the ref's eyes been there would have been a pk. This may be a case where the player was his own worst enemy.

hmmmm, don't know LA SJ is a good match up. Pretty competitive matches. Don't think it will that cut and dry. Still taking LA as Keene is on form.

Absolutely gorgeous. I did a few laps around the kitchen after that one.

Well, I think he was consistent in not calling PKs on Vancouver's dives.

Yup, just like AEG bought the MLS Cup last year. Or how LA cheats by bending the Designated Player rule. Or how the fans are plastic even though we have an all-time attendance average of 22,067.

I guess comments like those are just symptoms of being jealous of the franchise

So, I guess the Fire maybe should have beaten DC or the Red Bull in the final games of the season, so they wouldn't have been in that horrific play-in

Indeed, those were some key slip ups that put them in this position. The knockout round is always a banana peel waiting to strike...

You must have been getting a beer on the foul in the area in question. Watch the replays..

Nope, never left my seat except at half. Are we talking about the slight tap to the ankle plus the butterfly kiss to the face?

If we want to go down that road, LA should have been awarded a second PK when LD was NFL tackled in the box as he was about to receive a pass.

Well that brings up the consistency issue. The one that has been plauging the MLS for some time. I think on the trip slap, it may be on the vancouver player who made too big a deal about the touch to the face, drawing all attention away from the ankle clip. I may have missed the second Donovan foul as it was a good dinner and a little sleepy time took over. That and the beers I had eariler.

Just go beat SJ now. I want a Seatlle LA western final where skilled soccer is played and thugball is just a memmory.
