  1. I admit to not understanding some stuff the disciplinary committee hands out, but coming up with both of those plays as dives is pretty ridiculous. If I remember correctly…neither resulted in a free kick. Guess the league needed a few bucks for the charter flight fund!

    • They were both dives, but Escobar’s was worse and he did earn a dangerous free kick. Santos should have been given a pass based on the number of times he was fouled without any consequences for Atlanta.

      • Thanks Pete. I agree they were both dives. Forgot about the free kick. I was really getting at the committee feeling the need to fine them. And I agree on Santos.

      • Yeah, the disciplinary committee seems pretty ridiculous in MLS. Like all those early last minute suspensions it handed out to Wagner early in the season.

    • I literally had a dream about him playing here. he obviously never will, but i dreamt it.

    • It comes down to, “Do I want to play, or do I want to just train while making boat loads of cash.” I don’t see where anyone in MLS can come close to what Arsenal is paying Özil.

  2. The MLS disciplinary committee is so stupid. So Santos gets fined meanwhile the whole ATL United team was diving all night !! Big F you MLS. Oh yea your entire referee squad is complete shit too.
