It is sickeningly surprising that the ref last night was not the worst one we have had to watch in QWest. Either way, they did not play TOO decisive a role in the game as Weyland did, but instead could not really decide on a consistent standard to call the game by.
On that note, here are a few quotes from Sigi from the post-game press conference.
|From Sounders FC v. Colombus Crew|
On the team's focus:
"I thought our focus was a problem... There is only so much focus and energy we have in a game and if we expend it on the officials then we will end up with results like this."
On Marshall's Ejection:
"I was just as far away form it as you guys but Marshall was jockeying for position of the ball and there was an elbow thrown, but like I said I didn't see it.
On the indirect free kick:
"People might see it as a good scoring opportunity but what happens is that the defenders have to be 6 yards away which would be right on the goal line. It's something the referees never enforce so when the ball is hit usually no one is on the goal line.
