    After the second goal, he ran up on eliseo (a man half his size) and then started dancing around him, diving in and out of his face in the hopes he'd chase him or throw a punch. Was there any backstory to this or is big-bird just a complete punk?

    I didn't see it, but it's shame if it was uncalled for. He made enough of a statement by dominating us in the air and in central defense in general.

    who cares, if we would have actually played well and won it would have never happened.

    I guess the whining from DC is not confined to the pitch.
    Non-story.....half of goal celebrations is showing up the other team (i.e. hands to ears, I heart NY, etc.)

    Q2 should kicked him in the nuts. Yeah there probably would be a card, but I think we can all agree it would have been worth it.

    I do because it's humiliating, almost as much as how we play in general. Since I can't yell and my beloved United for playing like they'd rather be anywhere but on the pitch, I have to yell and giant cartoon-character shaped defenders who behave like 12 year-old girls.

    Pyro, you should see this one, it was different. I'm all for 'in your face' antics, and the better team won that game, but just watch it if you can, it was bizarre. Does he always do that? I mean his own player pulled him off.

    Bocanegra, class act.

    The only thing I saw Curtin do was dominate our feeble attack.

    After the Fire score the second goal, I wasn't watching him. I was too busy looking skyward, hoping for some divine explanation as to how my team had played so poorly.

    Big-bird didn't dominate *#*#*#*#*#. We never got it that far past the midstripe. After williams scored, we pulled in an played for the 1-0 loss. Almost worked too! ;-)

    I was at the game but left, literally, as Razov's ball was floating into the DC net. So, I never actually saw Curtin do his little jig around Q2. However, I did notice, a few minutes earlier in the game, that, as yet another DC "attack" fizzled and Chicago moved the ball upfield, Curtin took offense to something Q2 did (I think there was a bit of incidental contact between the two of them, but I was not 100% sure) and he (Curtin) followed closely behind Q2 as the two ran upfield and you could definitely tell that Curtin was saying something to him and was "posturing" in a somewhat aggressive manner. Q2 did not turn around.

    I assume the after-goal celebration was a continuation of what I witnessed. Hope that is somewhat helpful.

    Yeah, this was much more like the two of them had been getting at each other all game and after the 2nd goal Curtin was all in Cheyo's face...picture really bad NBA style in your face trash talking...except with a big dumb white guy

    unfortuantely Curtin made two mistakes:

    He did right in front of BB/SE

    and he has to play DCU Sunday...I fully expect Dema and Stoich to seek revenge as only they know how ;)

    I saw it. Can only assume it was a continuation of some in-game give and take between Curtin and Q2. If it wasn't, then it's safe to assume that Curtin is an a$$ and doesn't know how to win with a little class. The score spoke for itself. There certainly wasn't a need for the taunting.

    Hell, Q2 could give the freak an uppercut to the nuts!
    He did give him a nice little forearm while Curtin was hopping around him being a dick. He did it while Curtin was in the air so it almost knocked him off balance, then he really got into Q2s face.
    Great young defender, wish we had him, want him to die, he's too goofy looking to be on TV.

    i saw it too and thought it was pretty over-the-top. i wish he'd do that dance within arms reach of me. i guess he still has all the class of a cheatin bob bradley. i am sure it will take a another year or two for dave s. to mold his guys into classier guys.

    Bocanegra, class act? I thought so too until Razov's second goal on Saturday. While I'm sure his actions weren't that of Curtin, which I did not see, his stupid little shirt pointing antics were very immature.

    shirt pointing is a heat-of-the-moment type thing. Everybody does it.

    But dancing the 'voodoo-chicken' dance, while trying to egg a much smaller man than you into physical confrontation is not, it's a stupid thing. I don't care personally what happens to Curtin (probably nothing), and I don't think he should be fined, but you know if it had been a DC fella in Chi-town that did it, there'd be fines and 'special yellow cards' and other crap.

    I am not defending Curtin's antics (although I did not see them), however he and Q2 traded shots once or twice and I did see Curtin getting an elbow in the ribs when the two went up for a header. The two of them had words several times with Q2 tending to be the one to back down...not that I blame him. Celebrating with trash talk to an individual player that had nothing to do with the play is stupid. Which isn't to say that I, as a defender, haven't done something similar a few times in my career.

    Everyone doesn't do it the way he did. It was stupid and childish. But that's life. They had a right to be happy, I'm not saying they didn't, but there are classier ways of taunting. (if you can put it that way)
     
  21. I'm not defending Curtain wholesale, but based on what I've seen from him both on and off field, I gotta tell you he's a class act guy. He plays tough soccer, but I don't see much over the line type violence from him. He stays out in the stands late after home games to sign autographs for the kiddies, has clinics, and all that kind of stuff. He may have crossed a line - I didn't see it - but he's certainly not a no class, Bradley cretin (to paraphrase a few earlier posts).

    Curtin dancing in itself is hillarious. He wins my award for MLS Ugliest Player of the Year. The guy is ars clown. I mean to be 6'4 and pick a guy 5'6 think about it. There is no class in the Fire organization other than Boca.

    calm down

    OK, I saw pretty much the whole thing, it wasn't that big of a deal. Sure he was being a dick, but it was probably a retaliation for something stupid one of our players said to him or something. Or he picked Q2 'cause he's afraid of Hristo (or his mob connections). Just because you are a dick to someone in a "moment" doesn't mean you lack class or are "out of line", whatever the hell that means. Sounds Ashcroftian :)
    He is one ugly fvcker though. If he and Prideaux had children, they would be locked away in a basement.

    Re: calm down

    And beaten with reeds.


    Seriously, I started this thread and didn't mean to imply that curtin was a no-talent, free-wheeling hack with no class, no sense of style, a bad haircut, goofy eyes, a small wang, man-boobs and a 3rd grade education. I just meant to ask about what I saw to see if it was as uncalled for as i felt it was at the time. I don't follow the fire so I can't say that he does this all the time, he probably doesn't. But if he r- awww, god, seriously, somebody get that man a barber! It's like he's the love child of Shaun Bradley and Valderamma! Annie on growth hormones, I mean come on!

    There, I feel better.
