"He had a very poor night, not just on one call but on multiple calls. ... The call on the penalty is like a high school call. ... He is just back from the Olympics. He likes to be on NBC Sports apparently. He was on it a lot today."

-- D.C. United President Kevin Payne rips ref Mark Geiger after a 1-1 tie with Philadelphia. Geiger ordered a retake of a converted Dwayne De Rosario penalty kick because of Hamdi Salihi's encroachment, which TV replays confirmed, and missed on his second try. (Washington Post)

    Regardless of the officiating, DC doesn't understand the post-match whining process. Payne and Olsen should know better than to complain about the referee/officiating in such a direct manner. Send a lackey to complain on TV, not your coach and club president. wrt the article, "but the infraction is rarely enforced" is not a valid excuse. All players know better, they just choose to ignore that rule and variable officiating enables their bad behavior.
