    A defender would probably say stay onsides. Whistle it all dead. :lol:

    I’d say the play should be whistled dead if the player could have played the ball from an offside position. The offense should stay onside and not feed a ball to where an offside player could play it.

    this was the consensus with the vast majority when the rule was amended in the league i played in at the time, a bunch of other guys from other teams felt the same


    …….personally i feel it ruined and hindered solid defensive team strategies.

    a back 4 that exploited and worked together was rendered to the mercy of a linesman's discresion as to if the attacking player was involved…...

    as bad at the trapazoid rule


    all in the name of goals! for the lowest common denominator idiot fan that has never kicked a ****ing ball

    Go to a Red Bulls game and experience it live, I support them cause they have always been my local team. The league keeps growing and growing and personally I have 0 interest in the EPL or any other league because I have no ties to it.

    I don’t blame you for blowing off MLS if the Crew move. What Garber has allowed to happen is a travesty.

    The MetroStars dropped the NJ part in (I think) 2002. The soda people weren't the ones who did that.

    I am totally ****ing stunned about today’s result.

    To not just get a clean sheet against City, but to not concede even a single shot on target, AND with only 34% possession. Christ.

    Up the Reds.

    Within the last 24 hours, Devils embarrassed Rangers, Vaxjo Lakers went 2-0 up in the SHL semifinals and now Liverpool 3-0 against ManCity in CL. Unreal.

    3-1 win tonight for our boys despite the 70%-ish Chivas crowd. Chivas did not impress me at all in the home leg. Someone tell me tha Chivas has a better roster than NYRB.

    Great CL results indeed. Always been a Liverpool fan and also very glad Barca lost. Anyone know who is this Coutinho everyone's talking about? Some scrub not even getting to UCL Semis? :sarcasm:

    Also didn't know Patty is a Liverpool fan:

    As long as the UCL is on basic cable and the CONCACAF CL is strictly on Deportes or premium channels the latter will never be popular and MLS clubs will continue focusing on the one-league franchise model already found across our professional sports industry.

    Typical NYRB in a "playoff" home leg. Relentless pressure, have the other squad hemmed in their half, shots 20-1, and don't come through. It's getting really old.

    On the bright side, Tyler Adams is a stud.

    Chivas was thoroughly unimpressive and I expect Toronto to win.

    The shout-outs to his countrymen Vladdy Smicer and Patrik Berger, though.

    I love everything.

    A 0-0 tie in a game where one opponent outshoots the other 20 to 1 is pretty much why soccer's never taken off in America.

    Honestly F Chivas and their fans.

    Their keeper got a yellow for time wasting HALFWAY THROUGH THE FIRST HALF then had a defender waste time taking goal kicks so as to not get a second yellow. I have never seen that before. The injury faking and diving was out of control. Chivas fans should be ashamed of themselves. They were throwing stuff from the second deck down onto RB fans last night... then a huge group of them showed up outside the South Ward after the game to start fights. Security was completely overwhelmed and it was a mess. What a joke. I hate Toronto FC..... but I am 100% in on them for winning this tournament. F Chivas.

    This is also the sort of stuff demonstrating pretty much why soccer's never taken off in America.

    To be fair, this one's an easy fix if refs just cracked down on diving, injury faking, and time-wasting by handing out yellow-cards like candy, yet for some reason the soccer league that does this doesn't exist yet.

    Chivas fans showed up in the South Ward after the game... a VA member got sucker punched. They should be nowhere near these sections... but again RBA security has no idea how to do their jobs.
