I couldn’t do a better job explaining it.
Fire up the dvr for the next 3 weeks or so.
I was a MetroStars partial season ticket holder for the first 3 seasons of the MLS. Haven’t been to an MLS game since. Rarely watch it on tv. Why? Well, I got tired of the complete lack of respect the players had for their opponents, the officials and the game. You can only watch so much dissent and fouls with excessive force before it becomes something other than soccer. The other night I came across the last 25 minutes or so of the Houston Dynamo – Colorado Rapids game on FSC. Some changes for the better…some of the same old stuff.
The dive is bad enough but when you play for Hearts and you do it against Scotland, it’s beyond stupid. The two game International ban isn’t going to hurt nearly as much as what the Scottish midfielders and backs are going to deal out to this dude in league.
Saddest news. I was watching this match live when he was taken off the field. Just unbelievable.
This would be a goal of the year candidate in Europe. Hat tip to The Sporting Orange.
