    I agree. Blake would have saved that. It wasn't a great FK, just a very good one. A goal's a goal though.

    I was impressed by Nagbe, but he could have penetrated more instead of all the changes of direction.

    Morris screwed up on Jamaicas goal but he made up for it. I like him as a forward. He also made some good tackles.

    A good win.

    Again...proving me wrong. I'm still not convinced, but you can't argue with results.

    Good US vs Brazil women's game. Rapinoe ties it 3-3 in the 85th.

    Might as well start a general Footy/Soccer thread

    US goes up 4-3 in the 89th. Ertz. Heck of a comeback from down 3-1 late in the second half.

    Went to Manchester City vs. Tottenham on Saturday. Boooooring. MC just controlled the whole game.

    I pay ZERO attention to these preseason money-grab scrimmages.

    These unis look too similar.

    Yeah I'm not sure why Madrid isn't wearing their whites. Pretty mediocre game so far too.

    Hah. Super Classico with the drama.

    Barcelona don't seem to have anything but the diving anymore. Seriously without the regalos from refs they'd have lost so many games in recent years.

    Ronaldo with the brilliance followed by bonehead move getting the yellow card for taking the shirt off which gave the ref a chance to fuck up and give another yellow for a dive (after those multiple Suarez dives w no card?) AND then Ronaldo pushes the ref!! = suspension coming

    Spirited match to say the least. I don't buy the dive. SO many more weak calls made day in and day out in soccer. I felt it was legit. He had space, was about to come in on a break and there was lots of grabbing / contact in the box.

    I will say there is a lot of hands on / in the face of soccer refs in general. A few in the EPL games this weekend too. Seems like soccer refs are becoming WWE "refs"to some degree. Not tons of respect at this point. Hands on them need to be automatic 2-4 game suspensions with out pay. They need to claw some respect back. It's getting a bit out of control IMO. Not saying you can't talk to or plead a case, but it seems like half the team comes over and ambushes them on suspect calls these days. Lots of "in your face" posturing and often hands on contact. Refs must be nervous at times.

    I also thought the Ronaldo card was weird. I might not have given a penalty, but it didn't really come off as a dive. Particularly, as you mention, compared to some of the earlier ones including the penalty.

    We'll see if Madrid can survive the opening stretch of the season without Ronaldo. Neither Benzema or Bale has really looked good at all in the preseason.

    Ronaldo gets 5 game suspension. Well deserved.

    Yep, can't really argue with that. Though I bet he ends up with a 4 game suspension after the second yellow gets rescinded. I believe it's one game for the red, four for the shove.

    I agree with your assessment. The Ronaldo "dive" really wasn't one...but it wasn't a PK either.

    Man, I used to get so hot and bothered when I played - it's an emotional game where you leave your heart on the field. When the flow is stopped for shit reason, it could get bad. Also, the refs in the US suck SO BAD that their bad calls could cost you a game that you deserved to win (happened many times in reality to me AND my sons).

    I agree though, that the refs need to be protected and touching them is out of bounds. The suspension for Ronaldo is warranted.
