    Whose the knucklehead who selected Baldomero "RedCard" Toledo, OMG! Personally I like the ref who did the LA Galaxy game v NY Redbulls,, he did a good job in that game

    Two of the most inconsistent refs in the MLS. Marrufo can't set up a wall 10 yards away from the ball and doesn't believe in encroachment on free kicks while fouls from the rear are not always carded as mandated in the rulebook.
