    What was Leitch thinking, he's yelling at the NE player because he thought the guy took a dive. The ball was still in play and he didnt have the brains to help Parke by giving him a passing target,,,, be professional play the whistle

    Yes, the more I see of it I think it is kinda silly for Leitch to stop completely and scream at Dempsey while he is on the ground. All this time no whistle. And Parke is just as much to blame because he completely stops playing also thinking that there should be a whistle. Ralston then scores the 3rd goal. Both of them share the blame.

    He may have been wrong, but Parke never looked for anyone to pass to until it was too late

    Nope, sorry, Parke is getting the entire blame. He doesn't have to stop there assuming the whistle is going to be blown by the Ref. He doesn't have to stop and look at Leitch yelling at Dempsey who tried to take a dive. If that player has the ball, he should continue to play the ball. regardless of what his teammate is or isn't doing.

    Did Parke hear the whistle blow? No.

    Then he should have continued to play the ball and either look to pass it back to Wells or to clear the area and send it towards midfield.

    Is Leitch a bone head for yelling at Dempsey? Yes. But Leitch doesn't have the ball, Parke does. And then all of a sudden, Brain Fart.

    If what you say had any truth to it, I doubt he would be playing every minute of every game. Leitch made a mistake, period.

    They both screwed up. If you watch the replay when Leitch started screaming Parke looked back at him and that is when Ralston toe poked the ball away. Parke is ultimately responsible but Leitch should have fired out to the sideline and given him a passing option. You don't stop playing unless you hear a whistle.

    that a great idea of what the play off's going to be like. Veteran Ralston punished our irresponsible diffense for their rookie mistake. Even though Lietch is being called a veteran all the time.....doesnt look like one to me

    Parke = 99.9% to blame

    Geez, and I thought this was a team sport.

    I cannot buy that a single incident cost us the game. Or two incidents. Or even three. Our defense was superb for much of the game, then fell apart as a team. Anyone who's played team sports knows how addictive choking can be to a team. This happens when you let emotions run away. The team gets frustrated, frustration causes errors, the team looses it. Mo understood this when he was pointing to his head after the SGR goal. We were beat mentally first (by Heaps of all people!), then the goals started piling up...

    Since when do you need a player open to blast the ball ANYWHERE!!! Hell, even if he had blasted the ball out and given NE a corner it would have been better. Then again, doing anything other than what he did would have been better. No doubt leitch is a moron, and should have been repremanded for his boneheaded behavior, but he wasn't the one who gifted the ball to NE.
