While we did not play a great game, the only feeling I have right now is - WE WERE ROBBED!!!Please tell me that is a little Canadian humour?
While I wince at the superficial similarities, and was well aware of the potential percieved congruencies, I felt that the Canadians did play a great game by their standards, while the Sounders did not. No replay showed that Ianni committed a hand ball (at least that I have seen) and on a Sounders miss in the PK shootout, the cheating SOB of a KC goalie was off his line but not called. And, under the modern rules, the KC goalies antics were worthy of an unsportsmanlike yellow card.
And the ref blew many calls during the match, might as well been wearing a KC jersey.........
I'm going to sound like a KC supporter, which I am not, but Seattle lost that game. Not just in the score, but it looked like a gift to KC and not from Salazar.
While Salazar is not my favorite referee, he is the one we had to have and it's often said that the referee is part of the game whether we like it or not. Take the referee 'out of the game' by scoring goals and their calls aren't worth much. Seattle failed to do that.
Seattle passing was horrid! I've seen little kids with crisper passing!
Seattle also needs to get rid of the idea that 'I was fouled so it must be called' bandwagon. Quit being a baby and play!
Yes, there are times when it should be called ( like when Salazar didn't call the foul on Rosales when he was strong armed off the ball, yet called it when it was a minor body check )
We all know that Seattle plays a good game but last night they failed to show up for it. As for the KFTM's? no comment. UGH! Just UGH!
With that said, when's the next game?
