From a dc article on Saturday's game: After Saturday's game, Etcheverry contended Kenny made the rarely-seen call on purpose, regardless of its merit. ``They have too many problems with D.C. United. And they think they are winning the game against Marco. They're not," Etcheverry said. ``I'm here to play soccer and I love this game. They don't know where they are. I don't think they belong in FIFA. Maybe in college or high school, I don't know. It's so bad. They're killing this league." Nice. So, Etcheverry is convinced that because his team can't score, Moreno can't put in a pk, he can't finish a pk when he has to, and no doubt countless other reasons; the referees are completely against him. First, Is Etch so absolutely stupid that he really thinks announcing it through the media will actually help his or his teams cause? Maybe the refs have it in for Marco. If there is any grain of truth to it at all, at some point he brought it on himself the same way cops convict people of "Contemp of Cop". He has mouthed off regarding the refs since day 1. Refs are only human after all. Hey Marco, here's a comcept: Try being good enough to earn points on your own merit regardless of ref. Here's another one: Shut your mouth. Maybe if you do that you might not get hosed on "every" call. Second, Bob Gansler choose to approach it differently. The difference in intelligence is striking in it's simplicity. BG, in the same article said that Noel Kenny is a good referee but he thought NK missed the call on the awarding of a penalty. Same message as Marco, vastly different delivery. Third, I really enjoyed MCE's view on refs killing the league. Killing the league?!? Somehow I think the league will manage to pull through. The same might not be able to be said about MCE's career or dc chances this season.
