    Was hoping for closer to a sell out, I think the attendance numbers will be watched with WC bidding coming up.

    At least you have the TV feed. I'm stuck in a hotel without FS. Stuck paying the subscription for a feed that's fuzzy half the time.

    That was NO penalty. That kind of handball is NOT given most of the time. Ugh what a hole we're in now.

    Tough call either way. His hand was definitely extended, but there really wasn't any time to react.

    Not a good half for the USA at all poor build up lack of possessions and too many long balls.

    Add that to the classic early goal and the poor penalty kick and this doesn't seem like a whole the USA can dig its self out of

    Hand clearly extended blocking a shot within the box. A penalty every time.

    Thats almost never called, but I agree by the letter of the law that it is a penalty. Just like the Guzan handleing the ball out of the box call last year. Happens all the time with no call. That is why the players get upset, in 8 out of 10 calls, that is not given.

    60th minute Jones should pop off for Nagbe, move Wood inside, slot Pulisic on the wing and let it roll. Dempsey doesn't have a full 90 in him.

    If that is not called its because the refs don't see it. That is the most uncontroversial handball I've seen, except if you're a USMNT fan.

    Per LOG: position of hand does not necessarily indicate infringement. Take that for what it's worth. I would have called it, but I've also seen it not called due to another LOG stipulation (distance). It was a very quick play. What hurt most to me was that the ball appeared to be a dangerous cross. Refs are human and will consider that.

    Yeah because if you don't agree with a call you are a homer, please. If a player turns their back it is almost never called because of intent. Again by the letter of the law it is a penalty, but it is called so differently every time, players get upset.

    Colombia didn't play well. The USA said "OK, we'll just play worse". Both teams didn't perform, but Colombians won't care since they get the points.
