    Who was the idiot referee who ruined the game for Seattle (vs. Celtic)? The moron should be barred, at very least blacklisted by the US Federation. I am not saying to use favoritism, but not be extreme at a friendly where the outcome is practically meaningless, with the exception for the US public in this case Seattle. Thus sacrificing a possible good show for the crowd to enjoy. We need a crowd like that for the "game" in the US. It was a friendly game he should have given a penalty at max., but not ejecting the poalkeeper to surely doom the game and influence the result with one less player to play the entire game. Award the Ref 20 years at hard labor in Siberia without a trial. LOL, although it is not funny!

    According to you, the referees have the discretion when to observe the Laws of the Game. I am glad that we have someone that understands that all players and managers must abide by the Laws every time they set foot on the pitch.
