I hereby declare this new thread to be where we shall discuss MLS referee assignments of years past as well as discuss and work as a community on the database I have created to keep track of all these stats. I'm going to be posting year by year statistics gradually as I slog through the copying and pasting of SQL queries and turn it into something readable. Don't expect more than one year in one night. I might go insane if I tried to do it all at once. If you spot something you know or even suspect might be wrong, LET ME KNOW. This is in no way a collection of official stats. My goal is to be as accurate as possible, and I am fully aware that there are discrepancies between what I have collected and what MLS seems to think are the "official" numbers. IMPORTANT DISCLAIMER(s): Any time a player received a second caution in the same match it is recorded in the database as ONE yellow and ONE red (for 2CT). There are two reasons for this. One, MLS seems to count it that way on their official statistics, and I wanted to remain consistent. Two, because MLS did not provide the reasons for cautions/ejections in most of the early match summaries, I have no idea on some of the matches if a player was shown two yellows or was shown a yellow and a straight red in the same match. At least this way I don't have to guess. Also, the infamous Jair Marrufo screw-up in 2003 where he showed Brandon Prideaux two yellows without showing a red is recorded as if Prideaux was shown the red card for 2CT. Again, I did this for two reasons. One, there is an intentionally built-in constraint that disallows me from entering two yellow cards for the same player on the same date. Two, when the league made a disciplinary ruling, Prideaux was credited statistically with having been sent off and served a one match suspension so the numbers are consistent with official MLS statistics.
