LA is hot but KC has shown they are a strong team and possibly one of the best in the league. They outplayed Seattle only to get stung on a goal in stoppage time (should not have been allowed).
I was at the game. Why shouldn't it have been allowed?

The throw-in was taken 10-15 yards ahead of where the ball went out. That happens a lot but not to that extent. It was blatant and ridiculous. The goal never would have happened if he had taken it in the right spot. I had my hands up yelling as soon as the throw-in was taken.

The Director of Officiating for US Soccer has even come forward and said that the sideline ref should have called it back.

“The referee needs to be aware of where that ball went out and especially at that time of the game in the attacking third,” U.S. Socccer director of referee development Paul Tamberino said to mlssoccer.com. “The referee needs to take the lead there. The assistant referee knows that in the waning seconds of the game his focus needs to be on where that second to last defender is. So the onus comes on the referee.”

I can't argue with you there. I actually didn't see where the ball went out as I was sitting in a spot where I couldn't see the sidelines . I just saw the throw-in and score. I haven't been able to get to many games so still trying to find my "perfect spot".

Different question:

Where in KC is the new stadium being built? No, I've never been to KC but am somewhat familiar with the area as I love looking at maps and have actually considered moving to the area. Do you think leaving Community America ballpark will be good, bad or indifferent?

I know it's not really a great soccer stadium but the grassy hillside seating appears to be unique enough where I think it would actually be fun.

Just got back from the Fire-Dynamo match. Great game, though the ref got a little card happy toward the end. Usually the Fire lay an egg at home against teams from Texas. In fact this is the first time we've beaten a Texas team at home since opening Toyota Park in 2006. Wow.

The stadium is being built right around the corner from Community America Ballpark, right across the street from Nebraska Furniture Mart.

Leaving CAB is going to be great! The stadium is going to be state of the art.

CAB has a lot of issues. The field is tiny, the views from many seats are terrible, the scoreboard has a screen that no one can see, it only holds 10K, etc. I could go on and on. It's okay for what it is but I cant wait to leave it.

What's going on back east?

NY with 5th win in only 6 games (Last season it took them the whole season for 5 wins)

DC United still at 0 points.

If this keeps up, you know who will be "coach of the year" (Backe) and Onalfo will get fired from his second club in two seasons.

Onalfo might be on the hot season if they dont win in the next couple of games. They face the KC team that pounded them 4-0 on opening day on Wednesday on ESPN2. I am hoping the Wizards can rebound from a poor performance in Houston.

2010 Seattle Sounders FC sure isn't doing as well as the 2009 squad.

A 4-0 loss at home to the Beckhamless Galaxy. What the hell is going on???

Sure, the Galaxy are doing good this year but still......losing 4-0 (almost 5-0) at home to them??? Actually, I'm glad I didn't go.
