The Richie Williams forearm shiver and Addu's 12' stretch of Buddle's jersey brought up a discussion on rule enforcement with a friend . We both watch EPL and Bundesliga etc. and have noted a decrease in both pace and scoring in MLS. Part of the problem appeared to us to be an unwillingness to enforce the rules with cards and expulsions. The persistent fouling and some clear intimidations (ala Richie) have reduced the pace and skill demonstrations by the more talented players. Anyone who thought McBride hasn't been being persistently fouled from behind when he receives the ball hasn't been paying attention. What's the general opinion?
