    I saw them talking, but I thought that Ray was giving him instructions or something. I'm sure there is more to this than the obvious.

    Ray's words were: "Don't you f-ing laugh at me"....and some instructions/words of 'encouragement'.

    It was quite interesting....

    The whole incident came about because Santino simply was smiling and Ray didn't like it.. Ray was asked about that incident at the press conference and he smiled incredulously and said "I can't believe he had a smile on his face. I want players to have scowls on their faces in a game like this, not big grins"..

    Santino apologized after the game and told Hudson "sorry coach, I'll never smile again", to which Ray just cracked up..

    Make nothing of it.....

    Bullsh!t! I've been singing Namoff's praises for a damned long time. You're the SOB who didn't play him enough!

    Apparently whoever did that page doesn't know the name of "Kansas City Head Coach." ROFL.

    I don't get it..

    Hudson did nothing but sweep effusive praise last night over the performance of Bryan Namoff..

    What he was saying is that he simply is a player that no one knew anything about and he now is a player that can be counted on to give a great effort game in and game out..

    I know you're distaste for Hudson and I appreciate that but what he said last night should not be taken as an insult in any way, shape or form..

    Well said - I'm not sure how Hudson could say that and look at Namoff. Namoff should have been starting all season.

    I'm sorry Cweed but I refuse to be a sycophant just because we squeaked into the playoffs. Hudson has been playing Ivanov instead of Namoff quite often this year. For him to come out last night and say Namoff's a fantastic player who doesn't get enough recognition is simply hypocritical. The person who most overlooked Namoff in the past was Hudson himself.

    I agree with Knave on this. I noticed Namoff in the middle of the year, in my opinion, outplaying Ivanov during regular season games. I even started a thread on this:
    https://www.bigsoccer.com/forum/showthread.php?s=&threadid=75211&highlight=Namoff+Starting

    I think players need to earn their spots. But when they do earn them, and then don't get them anyway, I want to know why. That's why I asked for others' opinions. The only ones making sense were maybe Hudson feels Ivanov gives more offensive firepower.

    I think that's only because he's good on set pieces (as, it seems, only DC United defensemen can do) and that he wanders upfield as a wingback more than Namoff. That last point is not a good one, because he'll do that without proper support sometimes. He did get us one goal by doing that this year, but I think he may have cost us more goals with his 'slide tackle first, think later' style of defending.

    Namoff's not unsung here either. I think he was always recognized for being a solid contributor by everyone outside the organization, but perhaps not as much within the organization. He should have been in the starting XI all season.
