Beginning with a red card to Real Salt Lake's Nat Borchers, the refereeing of Yader Reyes in Monday's RSL-New England game left a lot of folks wondering if it was the worst officiated MLS game they'd ever seen.
"I mean, this was the worst refereeing job -- definitely this year and probably in history," said ESPN soccer analyst Alexi Lalas. "Absolutely horrible."
The game ended in a 3-3 tie after both teams had players sent off and received penalty kicks.
"When you see [RSL coach] Jason Kreis on the sideline with his counterpart, [New England coach] Steve Nicol, go over to him after [RSL] has been awarded a penalty kick and propose, 'Why don't we walk off because this is so horrible?' -- this is the situation MLS is in right now," Lalas said.
