Seattle's love affair with the Open Cup turns sour
The controversy surrounding Clint Dempsey and his trashing of referee Daniel Radford's notebook is quite ridiculous. Ridiculous because there should be no controversy. We know, we saw (and now we've seen it repeatedly) what Dempsey did. We know what U.S. Federation regulations say about that sort of thing -- it is clearly considered, as it should be, an assault on the referee, and the mandated punishment is a six-game suspension.

"Congratulations to the USA. They had the better chances, and from that one can say they deserved the win."

-- Germany defender Annike Krahn after her team's 2-0 loss to the USA in the Women's World Cup semifinal. Krahn was called for the penalty kick for foul on Alex Morgan that looked just outside the box. (Sueddeutsche Zeitung)
