Nah, I catch some of those Sunday Telefutura jawns fischy. Then again I don't have FSC so I take what I can get.

I'm guessing Gringo Torres will stick around for the final leg of the finals on Saturday and then head to Costa Rica right?

ESPN just reported that Nowak has resigned from the Nats, guess the report that he'll become Union's head coach are true.

Posted by: alecw81 | May 28, 2009 11:31 PM | Report abuse

@alecw -- It's already old news. The timing is a bit strange, as the USA starts its training for the WC qualifiers and then the Confederations Cup. Can't imagine Bradley's thrilled. Nowak always was a self-centered t@@l. I'M sure he's replaceable, though.

This is a pretty good game -- unusual to see MLS teams playing this hard, running this much. If most games were like this, the crowds would be larger.

Very entertaining game so far. I dunno if it's the chippiness, the quality of the teams, the LED sideboards, or the stunning Bravia HD (woot), but this game feels big time.

El Gringo Torres took a nice shot -- Palencia slid into his shin or knee, with studs up. Jose had to be stretchered of, but he came back on quickly.

Well, that was the 4th time McBride was knocked down in the box, and probably the one least deserving of a penalty call. Love it when the refs decide the game....

Absolutely, J.P. Absolutely.

Those vodka folks should come out with a new flavor that's Absolut-ly Harkesy.

Looks like you got your wish DadRyan. With an assist from Vaughn.

If I were the Chivas USA supporter's section behind their own goal in the 2nd half, I'd be pretty steamed at the people in my own section cheering against Chivas/for Blanco..

Oh, and did anyone else see a Club America reporter getting first dibs on Blanco post game?

Does Harkes get paid for all those subliminal vodka plugs?

I propose a new drinking game. One shot of Absolut every time Harkes says "Absolutely".... Might lead to sever alcohol poisoning.

Posted by: fischy | May 29, 2009 12:56 AM | Report abuse

The other two penalties were definately penalties, this one was VERY weak. And for a game of that magnitude that had been played that evenly (one could argue better by Chivas being down a man for most of the second half), that shouldn't be the deciding factor. That said, didn't everyone think Blanco was going to Thornton's left? It was an easy call if you ask me. Oh well, entertaining game.

I'll be watching the FA Cup Final and the Second Leg of the Mexican Clausura for our boys Timmy and El Gringo.

Did McBride learn all that flopping at Fulham? He was going down easy in the game here against us too.

McBride????!!!!!! He was just doing what any player does at that point in the game. Problem is with the idiot making the call. To give a PK for that at that point in the game was disgraceful. Vaughan should be suspended by the league.

Posted by: croftonpost | May 29, 2009 1:13 AM | Report abuse

oh goodness me, i thought this was a DCU blog. Can we stop sticking up for the enemy when it comes to the refs dry humping them?!?
What?!
This isn't a DCU blog?
Who cares! the game was fine, the enemy didn't have the best time of it, I got some sweet fantasy points(Look out Argy Bargists!) and it wasn't boring for once. Hopefully DCU and New York hoook it up next week and all the calls fall our way!!!
THERE is NO POINT complaining about refs on behalf of other clubs. there just isn't. Screw Them. We get Screwed, they get screwed. Hopefully we get screwed less.

I'm setting up a foundation to find a cure for Harkes Syndrome, an addiction to the sound of one's own whiny, monotonous gibberish. Funds are needed to fly a European specialist to the central treatment facility in Bristol, CT.

Criticize the refs, OK, but Chivas blew it. Total lack of composure in the 2nd half at both ends of the field. And if you want to get calls at the 95th minute, don't spend the first 94 testing the ref's limits.

Between that, their injuries, and now Marsch's suspension, and with FIFA rules backing any potential discipline for Sacha's little gift to the Chicago bench and the viewing audience, now might be the time to draw Chivas.

Posted by: Godfather_of_Goals | May 29, 2009 1:57 AM | Report abuse

I know Chivas was down a man, but Nyarko being in changed a lot of Chicago's attack. I'm not sure I remember a decent ball from Blanco before he began connecting with Nyarko. McBride? I don't like it, but meh. Vaughn blew it.

trying to understand a rule: let's say that the mcbride "push" was a real foul. does it matter that the ball was WAY over his head? for example, in american football, you can't have pass interference if the ball if overthrown...is there a similar rule in soccer? thanks.

Posted by: birdynumnum | May 29, 2009 9:48 AM | Report abuse

@DadRyan -- Remind me again -- which of those teams is "the enemy"?

@birdy -- I suppose it depends on whether you say it was a push or not. If it's a push, then it's a direct free kick...a penalty kick. If it was merely obstruction -- what is now called impeding the progress of an opponent -- then, an indirect free kick could be awarded. But, if you accept that the defender did something to knock McBride down, without legally positioned to play the ball himself, then it is a foul.

I just didn't see it it on the replays. Looked like a dive, though I'll say none of the replays ESPN used showed what the defender was doing with his hands.

Posted by: birdynumnum | May 29, 2009 9:48 AM
************************

It doesn't matter where the ball is as long as it's in play. If a defender fouls an attacking player in the penalty area and the ball is in play anywhere on the field it can be called a penalty kick. Realistically, refs often miss those either because they're looking elsewhere or they decide the contact or foul was trifling and not worth stopping play for.

The location of the ball when a foul is committed IS an important criteria in determining whether or not cards should be issued but not a factor which determines whether or not a foul occurred.

Posted by: Joel_M_Lane | May 29, 2009 10:53 AM | Report abuse

They are both the enemy.

Posted by: DadRyan | May 29, 2009 11:21 AM | Report abuse

thanks for clarifying the rule. lalas mentioned at halftime that the first PK (the one against conde where he was clearly dragged down by his shirt) should not have been a penalty because conde wasn't going to get to the ball anyway. hence my confusion. of course, lalas said this, so take it for what it's worth...

Posted by: birdynumnum | May 29, 2009 11:28 AM | Report abuse

birdynumnm,

I would like to add that in the situation that occurred last night the referee is expected to use good judgement. Players often take dives at that point in the game to try to draw cheap fouls (such as McBride did). It's part of the game and no fault lies with McBride. However, Terry Vaughan did not use good judgment in that situation and I'm be extremely kind. It was a terrible call that an amateur referee shouldn't even make. The fact that the play was not affected should have factored in Vaughan's decision. So the answer to your question is technically no and realistically yes.
