Learn to relax and close out a game.

+1

What the ? was up with that "I've got crabs, you too?" celebration on the final goal?

Wow, two heartbreakers in a row, first the Crew night before and now RSL. Still, I see MLS making progress on pulling out some results down south! Baby steps....

The first highlight shows a RSL goal disallowed for offside, which the highlight shows was a bad call. Cruz Azul's 1st goal should have had the free kick retaken because the ball was still moving. Finally, on RSL's PK, the Cruz Azul player should have received a red card for Denying an Obvious Goal Scoring Opportunity (DOGSO as the referees call it). Granted, doing this on a PK infraction seems somewhat illogical if a goal is scored on the PK (a red card for DOGSO even as a goal is eventually scored), but those are the rules.

Why do we even play in these tournaments?

Never a dull moment in the DF.

Every game MLS teams played in had obvious and controversial decision made by the ref that effected the outcome of the game. Every game. It is sad that these teams are getting shafted when they visit opposing teams homes because in most cases its perfectly obvious there is bias against us. Columbus did get outplayed for long stretches but damn they did score a legit goal but had it reversed afterward when a MEXICAN ref points out something that reverses the call in favor of the MEXICAN team. Pathetic.

No more excuses to not watch/love the CCL.

Hell yeah. I even root for Seattle when they play a Mexican team.

Word ! From getting ripped off in the green and white taxis to running away from the shoe shine scammers! DF is really something else man. ;-)

I would think RSL would be the one team not to fade in the Mexico city air...okay, maybe Colorado too, if they ever make it.

Good goal disallowed, no red for DOGSO, looks like 7 minutes of added time...par for the course, I'd say. RSL can't complain too much, giving up 5 goals. 3 in less than 10 minutes.
