Colorado has been getting jobbed with these red cards lately. Fraser's tackle last night was a thing of beauty - one of the highlights of the game. If you want to follow the word of the law, you could hand out red cards all day, but I think the refs are cracking down on the wrong stuff. Red card Earnie Stewart for punting the ball into the stands. Red card pushing the ref. Yellow card encroachment, niggling fouls, diving, timewasting, kicking the ball away and all these tactics that are designed to wrest control of the game from the ref. Take the tough challenges out of soccer, however, and MLS players will be ill-prepared for the international game. And fans will lose out on an exciting, undeniable element of the sport.
