    Fun to see how jazzed Chicho is for his teammates when they do well.

    I was partly wrong. SEA will be just fine this year, if they can stay healthy.

    I thought that the Rusnak goal should have been saved. The wall was not in an optimal position and the keeper Shouldn’t get beat near post on that shot.

    perhaps some will disagree.

    On the 3 v 1 break when the goal was called back, we got lucky (or Vera was wise) there was no foul called. Only a goal prompts the review that results in the foul called in our favor. A second yellow for Vera/foul called against us and we're hosed both last night and on the weekend against Austin.

    I don't think a single person in this chat will disagree.

    I agree. At the same time the player anchoring that end did a weird sideways body turn away from the ball.

    If the team was polished in May that would be a problem. What I’m concerned about is that the tape on how to shut down rsl is out there. Some teams can pull it off, others can’t/don’t try it. Seattle didn’t. They allowed passes into the middle third.

    Very poor
    Rusnak realized it and moved beavers just enough with his eyes to take advantage of it.

    I’ll stress what i did earlier in this thread: the expectations of beavers are different than MacMath. I don’t see many fans applying that nuance. Instead it’s just “oh he sucks too”. One of the guys is a multi year veteran that’s played at 4+ mls teams and hasn’t ever stood out. The other is a teenager with national team aspirations. If you had two children of those ages your expectations of them would be vastly different. As would, theoretically, your allowance for mistakes

    I look at the error with the wall as a learning experience for him. He won’t reach his potential if he doesn’t get minutes and make mistakes.
