    He royally screwed Chivas on three plays tonight. One clear PK, one FK just outside of the box or PK, and of course, not letting O'Brien come on, when the whole freaking Chivas team was just sitting there.

    Even he was surprised that Dunivant was throwing the ball, because he whistled AFTER THE BALL HAD BEEN THROWN IN.

    What a freaking joke that was. If I was Bradley tonight, I'd be livid.

    Screw Landon for MOTM...it's all about Stott.

    Stott totally blew the first one as Garcia was grabbed by Ihemelu, but I thought Garcia went down very easily on the second one. I don't blame Garcia for trying to draw that foul since refs are often tempted to give the makeup call when its obviously they missed one earlier.

    Stott, Hall, whoever else MLS pretends to roll out there as a ref can all remain in FIFA's septic tank. Way to represent for your fellow Americans:rolleyes:

    Look on both plays, there was a legitimate foul. The defenders were putting their hands on top of Garcia's shoulder's...that is a foul, anyway you put it.

    And the no-sub call? That was GUTLESS. Thank God he's not at the world cup, he would have embarassed us with his horrible calls.

    Stott didn't help Landon beat three chivas players for that awesome pass on the second goal though. Thats why landon is the man, he can cry all he wants but when he carries his team to victory like that i guess you can be a crybaby!

    This bears to be repeated. MLS is not responsible for the officiating. You can blame a lot of other things on MLS but you can't blame them for the refs. It is the soccer federation's job in every country (as far as I know) to provide the refs for their domestic league. The USSF is directly responsible for the officiating in the MLS and there is little that the MLS can do about that.

    This is the second game Chivas got robbed this season. First foul in the box should have been a PK, no question about it. And the first Gals goal was freaken joke.

    The officiating can be from USSF to freaking Mars, it still has to be addressed. For officiating to cost a single team two games in a row is pretty poor.

    Well there would have been nothing to beat if Dunivant can't throw the ball in when he does, and Chivas gets two PKs.

    MOTM Kevin Stott.

    I know, but if Chivas had the PK that they should have, it probably would have changed the game. Plus..., on the throw-in, they were all waiting for JOB to sub in, including the REF himself.

    There is a ref conspiracy against Chivas USA. You know it, I know it, the little kids watching from the stands know it, THE WORLD KNOWS IT!

    It is time to raise our voices and boycott mls!

    You are right. Stott missed the PK but these things happen every week in all leagues not just MLS ( in fact refs make mistakes in every sport)

    Why was Chivas waiting for a sub if the ref never signaled a sub anyway? The first thing you learn as a kid is to play the whistle, Stott never signaled the sub to come on so Chivas should have been ready, no excuses.

    I agree. Chivas have been victims of cruel and unfair treatment by the refs. I will inform PETA of this immediately.

    that's the thing, Stott was looking over to the sideline, turns around, realizes that Dunivant was thorwing the ball in, and THEn whistles to start play. It was a complete hackjob.

    Well... I know that.

    But when the SAME CLUB get vitimized for two games in raw by officiating make me wonder, there is something wrong. For example, about the PK call.... I knew that Stott was going to pull the yellow card, because every ref in the US seems to think that everytimes Mexian falls, it's a simulation. Am I right or wrong, tell me that?

    He did dive the second time though.

    I am just glad it was an american in landon donovan who beat the "mexican team" or you might see it as an american in kevin Stott who beat the "mexican team". it was a pretty good game either way. cornell glen could have had 4 goals if he put two away in the first half.

    Garcia went down easy both times when he felt contact and the handball wasn't intentional. I don't think chivas got screwed today or last weekend.

    Watching Donovan tonight really brought to light how great he can play when he's motivated.

    Hopefully, he'll grow up a bit more, and decide to go back to Europe sometime down the road.

    I think he'd fit in great at a mid-table EPL team like Everton or Man City.

    The first one he was held back and went down. The second one he was touched and went down.

    This actually goes much higher up than the refs, MLS and USSF.

    God doesn't like Chivas.

    Of course not. God's a DC United fan. Why else do you think the sky is black at night with a bunch of stars showing.

    To not only miss the clear penalty but give a dive call was ludicrous.

    There may not be a "conspiracy", but perhaps many individual refs don't like Chivas for some reason or other.

    Then again, there's also the biggest conspiracy in the league as far as refs are concerned--INCOMPETENCE.

    I can't fathom God being a DCU fan...that would mean God is a big fan of El Diablo.... and worse still ......of Dema and his evil apprentice, Ben Olsen...

    Conspiracy against Chivas? I'm not sure, but poor refereeing decisions this weekend? You bet. Anyone care to comment on the PK Columbus "earned" against the Fire?
