Two badly botched PK calls -- but the MLS remedy is misguided
Well, not that brilliant a weekend for MLS refs. Specifically, a couple of dead-cert penalty kicks not called. If you assume -- which we always do, I think -- that a PK means a goal, then these were arguably game-defining calls, given that both games were won on one-goal margins by the team that profited from the miscalls.

"What is your reaction when I grab your hair? Your hair is shorter than [Marouane] Fellaini but, when I do that, what are you doing then? It's a reaction. Every human being who is grabbed by the hair, only with sex masochism, then it is allowed but not in other situations."
