Ok, so I didn't even hear about this until reading the match recaps today due to the fact that I was so frustrated with the match that I shut if off as the Chara goal rolled over the line.

I'm not going to defend Pareja going after Porter like that, it's a pretty indefensible move. That said, I can completely understand why he was so frustrated...if you were wearing a green jersey you had a free pass on pushing, pulling and shoving. Pretty blatant on a few occasions, but I think the most obvious was Adi v. Zimmerman when Adi tapped the ball toward the endline then proceeded to armcheck Zimm like an offensive lineman that just heard the QB yell "HIKE!"...and, of course, no call. Conversely, we got called for everything. Seeing that kind of unwarranted inequity is sure to make anyone upset.

Call him classless if you want, I won't agree but I can't really defend his actions on this particular occasion...I would much rather see Oscar go after the refs and incur a fine than seeing another move like this which will, and should, go unpunished.

I feel bad for soccer...no, actually I loved it. Nothing wrong with being passionate and showing some personality...MLS could use a little more of that. Loved Porter's response (scoreboard b*tch)...Douche on Douche...don't care for either one of them.


The young soccer careers of Rubio Rubin and Brady Scott are headed in completely opposite directions.
