MLS chaos!
« on: Sun 22 Nov 2020 22:30 »
It seems VAR is now guiding referees through penalty shootout regulations!

From about 5.50 in video - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CbZx4XZrnX4&feature=emb_logo

MLS are still using 2019-20 laws so second yellow for the goalkeeper being off the line (I think indicated by assistant as no on-field review, which MLS always use) was technically correct.

Referee then allows substitute goalkeeper to come on before realising 2 minutes later this isn't allowed.

Defender then goes in goal and later saves penalty. Referee blows for full-time and players celebrate, but it is then pointed out that score is 5-5 and they have to score a penalty to win.

Think the officials on-field just lost their heads.

Now that is a day at the office you'd want to forget!  What a complete shambles.

Why are the MLS using the old LOTG & not the current ones?

Orlando's kit is lush!

MLS season started in March so they don't implement any new laws until the start of the next season (albeit they only had a few rounds before Covid!)

Can't really blame technology there, that is human error.

No excuse whatsoever for a referee to not know competition / LOTG requirements.

He was lucky VAR was there to bail him out really - otherwise goodness knows how long he might have been suspended for! He'd have done a Keith Stroud at least twice!

It felt all the officials just lost it completely near the end.

There was the long delay a few months back too with the sub coming on who wasn't named on the team sheet. I'd be a bit concerned if I was Howard Webb about how up to scratch the officials are on the technicalities.

It is not a serious competition.  The clue is in the 'MLS' bit.  The S is for soccer.  Therefore they play a different sport in the American Pub League.  Do they still use jumpers for goalposts there? ;D

Ŕpropos of 'soccer': I am old enough to remember the days when 'soccer' had not yet become an Americanism and in British English was a perfectly acceptable synonym for (association) football.  The change in perception started, I think, at the end of the 1960s with the advent of the first professional association football league in the United States.  And what not everyone on this forum may be aware of is that the word 'soccer' (like many other slang terms in -er, including 'rugger') was coined at the end of the nineteenth century by the students of Oxford University.  Poor C.B. Fry will be turning in his grave over what happened to the word in the intervening decades.

I believe that the word 'soccer' was used by the South Americans as a slang/their Latinised version of 'Association Football'.
