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.

-- Jamie Vardy lookalike and Leicester City fan Lee Chapman on meeting the Foxes and their manager, Claudio Ranieri, as their bus left a celebratory lunch after they clinched the EPL title. (Independent)
