"Have you seen the field? It looks fine to me. I'm baffled that we can't play this game."

-- D.C. United coach Ben Olsen disagrees with MLS's decision to postpone the Red Bull Arena-hosted playoff game on Wednesday because of snow. (

"In my opinion, this was a very easy decision to postpone a game. You can't see the lines, it's not [soccer] playing on these conditions, risk for the health of the players."

    An embarrassment for MLS soccer. Watching random NYRB people shoveling snow with WalMart shovels was ridiculous! Of course they should have played. It looked like Henry didn't want to play (again) and the NYRB organization jumps when TH wants anything. Henry is spoiled. When they train on turf, he goes home. How ungracious is it of the RedBulls to push postponing this game after what DCU agreed to do after Hurricane Sandy? Unfortunately this is typical NYRB behavior. That's why there was more DC fans in the stadium than RedBull fans. Nobody likes this organization here, but we support it because we love soccer and want to see the MLS succeed here. Nelson Rodriguez should have made them play.
