    well deserved by Ramiro,I say he's the unsung hero of this team this year(besides Barrett of course).

    He's definitely been one of the more steady contributors to the Quakes this year. I wonder if he'll get an all-star selection at some point.

    He's struggled a bit when asked to switch between midfield and back on the left. I remember he did fairly well in the back last year, where he played primarily. This year he's played the majority in the midfield and has done well. When he has switched back and forth, he seems to struggle. He can play both, but the transition, refocusing his role/responsibility seems to throw him off a bit.

    I read up on the Laws of the Game. Since Corrales has more points than Donovan, he is REQUIRED to take his shirt off every time he scores a goal, until either Donovan passes him up or he tells Donovan that he is his "bi-atch." (High-scorers Graziani, Ekelund, and DeRosario are exempt from this rule as foreign internationals.)

    Also, a jersey thrown by a goal scorer can never be in an offside position unless the goal scorer throws it DIRECTLY at the referee.

    I hope this clears up some of the finer points of the rules.

    I thought it could be in an offside position. But it was only an offense if it was intefering with play. :D
