    I never said that Atlanta doesn’t get calls or anything about any team other than the Timbers. I said the MLS needs to fix the reffing and you just gave other examples as to why.

    You couldn't see that was a joke about the horrible and corrupt officiating that plagues MLS?

    No I know that you are criticizing the reffing. Just further clarifying my point.

    Their fans refusing to stop shouting an anti gay slur on goal kicks and pelting the RSL players with garbage only to see Petkie's boys knock them out was beautiful.

    And I don't get the Carson insult.

    Last time I checked Carson was still in LA County.

    yeah its extremely lame and makes no sense. there have been plenty of pro teams that have played in a different city than the one in their name

    they can't come up with anything better

    Its one thing if its actually technically incorrect, but LA Galaxy is technically a correct name.

    Brad Smith’s loan is extended. It was meant to be up at the end of summer but now it sounds like he’s here until at least the end of the season. Best LB in the MLS.

    It's close, but Kemar Lawrence is the best LB in the league. An absolute machine on defensive side of the game. How he controls the left side of the field is reminiscent of the Revis island days for the NY Jets. Smith is super impressive going forward - definitely has Lawrence beat there. It's a shame RBNY do not give Lawrence more set-piece duty. He has a wicked FK. His ability to recover and kill any counters is probably why they don't have him whipping corners in or standing over dead balls with the intent to put them on frame.

    What?? People aren't talking about Jorgen Skjelvik, the soccer version of turnstile according to me, as the best left back in the league?? He's only the highest paid defender in the league so that makes him good right??

    I think the Argentine kid at Columbus is the best LB in MLS right now, but he’s been injured since the beginning of the season. Danny Acosta, formerly of RSL, now with Orlando, probably has the most current ability, but he’s a real head case, from all accounts and can’t stay on the field because of it.

    Well with TFC signing the French winger and MTL signing Bojan (yes even if hes expired) the playoff race for the last 2-3 spots would be exciting to watch. Add NYRB on a good day and there is even more parity.

    Wow didn't know Bojan signed for MTL. Based on the hype he had when he was younger he's pretty much been a flop.

    You mean he is a major flop :laugh:

    He signed just today, not sure if official yet. But he is that type to have some skills but is mentally very weak. No expectations whatsoever.

    Atlanta breaks another attendance record. How come they do so well but Chicago and other traditional sports hot beds are doing so poorly?

    After the past weeks gun violence I think the MLS should give Alejandro Bedoya player of the week. After scoring against Atlanta found a mic and yelled, "Congress, do something now. End Gun Violence". Awesome to see him use his platform to advocate for change.

    I saw that live, he scored and then grabbed a mic. One of the greatest things I've seen on TV.

    Amazing that they gave it to him! Hopefully it spreads his message more!
