Did you see the end of the first half of the Crew/Rev first playoff game? If not check out the highlights on mlsnet.com. I don't know alot about Buddle but everytime I see him he seems to be doing something that makes me scratch my head and ask why. His swing at the ball (I do not believe he was swinging at the goalie, at least I hope not) was totally unnecessary. One constant about Arena's player choices seems to be that he does not select players who react blindly/stupidly, all of his old and new players are level headed. If Buddle repeated this reaction during a WCQ game, the US would be playing a player down and in these tough games that leads to losses.
