What They're Saying: Caleb Porter

"We get screwed on two calls, a penalty clear and an offsides that's not offsides that we score a fair goal, and it's by an American. What would happen in Mexico if you had a Mexican in the VAR booth? I think we all know. It's ridiculous."

-- Columbus Crew head coach Caleb Porter after the reigning MLS champion's 2-2 tie with Monterrey in the first leg of their Concacaf Champions League quarterfinal series. Porter was upset with Concacaf's last-minute decision (after getting FIFA approval) to use VAR for the quarterfinals. American Chris Penso was the video assistant referee for two decisions that went against the Crew -- a no-call on the Crew's appeal for a penalty kick in the first half and a go-ahead Crew goal overturned in the second half for offside.
