Major League Soccer officials screw up again: Koffie suspended

August 21, 2012 at 8:02 pm | Posted in Vancouver Whitecaps, Whitecaps Season 2012 | 4 Comments

MLS disciplinary officials continued to make fools of themselves again today as they banned yet another key Vancouver Whitecaps player from the team’s next game. Apparently they think that a football match is a tea party. Koffie committed a bad foul at the end of the match last Saturday and received a yellow card. Once again, MLS felt it had to correct the match officials and replace Koffie’s yellow card with a red.

All of this off the pitch meddling is bringing the league into disrepute. Football is a competitive game, and feelings run high. We fans attend matches because we want to see competitiveness and passion in our players. When players commit themselves to winning they can lose their temper and commit fouls. This is not something we fans want eliminated from the game. It is only natural, and that is what referees are for: they are there to keep discipline and to skillfully calm the players down.

Major league Soccer seems to be doing its very best to sabotage our team in its efforts to be successful. We fans don’t pay for season’s tickets to await ridiculous bulletins from the MLS disciplinary committee, we pay to see our favorite players play for our team.

Don Garber, where the hell are you? Your officials are making a laughing stock out of the MLS. What a travesty!

  4. The chances of going pro or making soccer your career are going to improve if you are realistic and follow the advice of others who are currently playing professionally. For example, to be a top performer in anything, practice, practice and more practice is necessary. No matter how skilled you may be, an athlete must practice to become consistent with their skills and technical abilities.Second, you must understand what the world of professional soccer looks like so that you can determine where to start, in getting discovered or how the process works.,
