Referee was a disgrace.

USSF got what it wanted, Seattle out. (Portland gets bye before the game, only two MLS teams that had to play eachother, this ref?!?!)

re: Oba ... landed on Timbers player's foot, acted like he broke his ribs? No diagnosis so far that I've seen other than I would guess rib injury (complete guess from watching it but not going to act like the stream was high quality or the camera man was a professional) ... Was said that he was stretched off, ambulance and hospital.

Update: Oba didn't go to the hospital (via Seattle beat writer on Twitter). Still doubt he plays this weekend.

SJE advance on Penalties a la Union.

Seattle sorry for your loss. Your posts are totally legitimate.

Thanks.

The good news? We still have the 4 USOC's in our trophy case. We're leading the Supporters Shield race (and even bigger lead if you go by PPG), we're one of the favorites for the MLS Cup and of course we have the Champions League.

The bad news? Sounders (and S2 for that matter) bias aside, tonight was an embarrassment for U.S. Soccer and not a good representation of the sport, overall. I'm glad I didn't try to get any casual fans to watch tonight, as I normally would, because I'd be embarrassed myself for hyping something up that turned out like that.

Agree, they need to get decent refs for the USOC and not
these scrubs that don't know what they are doing.

I don't see the red card for Azira on the highlights. Doesn't
make sense.

That said, Dempsey completely deserved the card no matter
the frustration with bad officiating. You can't take the refs cards
and rip them up and clap in officials faces etc. terrible
officiating but sad to see Demosey lack composure.

When I said I don't see it for Azira, I meant that it shouldn't
have been a foul really.

This tournament should be a HUGE event for U.S. Soccer. It
should be as important as the MLS cup. It gets zero support
and zero attention. Too bad. Tons of players can get
recognized this way.

Exactly right Jeff, the tournament doesn't get the respect it
deserves. Look at how big the FA Cup is in England, well the
USOC is just as historic and yet unless you see the game live
you have to follow it on you tube or Twitter. That's just wrong
and U.S. soccer needs to wake up and give this tournament
the exposure it deserves.

And for god sakes get some decent refs for the USOC
matches, some of the calls in the PHI-ROC game were
ridiculous in addition to those in other matches last night.

Dempsey definitely deserved his red card, but that was
awesome. As a soccer player, how many times have you wanted
to do something like that! I once received a red card for
"mooning" a ref as I walked off the field in an indoor tournament.
What can I say, I was young.
