    Galaxy v Rapids, Dynamo v FC Dallas, and DC v KC were not worth the price of admission. All three matches were mediocre at best. TV commentators suffocated the games with winded chatter as players turned the ball over with regular inefficiency and the referees blew several blantant calls. Three pitiful matches of third/fourth level football.

    To "I w Nowozeniuk:" Apparently you've a tremendous dislike for anything MLS, but it seems to me that what riles and upsets you the most is the tv commentators, and you know what" I agree with you. About the chatter-natter-nattering of the commentators: yes, they take much away from the game, as do others even in Spanish (e.g. The Univision telecasts of Mexican games, or even Cantor's almost stilted and tilted chatterbox!) The MLS chatterers got themselves the gig as result of the good old boy network, some former NT players and some who played college or were members of the timber squad of their teams, and may even, just maybe, have a national US Soccer Coaching License and were hired first as interns, and lo and behold if they have a European accent they're considered to be football experts. So my suggestion to you I w is to turn off the sound and just watch the action and provide your own commentary. As for the play, it takes time to make a good chicken salad and MLS is still in the now adolescent stage and is in a pre-puberty stage. Give 'em a chance....
