In the 'old' days, a player goes down and the ball gets played out, by either team. I know the 'official' stance has changed and play is supposed to continue until the ref stops the play. Most of the time in MLS, it seems to me, the etiquette remains kick it out. And so it was in tonight's' game, at least for 84 minutes. I'm not sure how many times it happened, but I can recall at least twice (once for each team) and don't recall any time when a player went down and one team or the other kept playing. Until the 84th minute when San Jose kept playing and scored while Rivero lay at midfield. Don't get me wrong, I'm not blaming the game result on that play. But after multiple occasions of both teams playing by the same set of 'unofficial' rules, what do you think of one team deciding to stop and try and take advantage? On the one hand I say good for San Jose, they aren't bound to play it out, why not try and take advantage of the situation? On the other hand, it just doesn't sit well with me. Had the teams let the player stay down and continue play throughout the game, I'd feel differently.
