Opening a new stadium is always a time to celebrate. Scoring 4 goals on one of the league’s best teams takes the celebration to a whole other level. The Mont…

  1. ref is ok, shut-up

  2. The Rivas tackle on Montero is not a straight red, one he got the ball, two
    didn’t hit with the studs. As the commentator said Rivas scissors Montero,
    that was the thing that got him the yellow and not the tackle itself which
    would have been fine if he didn’t take his legs out.

  3. Studs weren’t exactly up (cleat was raised), wasn’t malicious… but I can
    see how it looked bad from the refs pov. Still, ruined what would have been
    a good fan. Plus Rivas getting away with a scary tackle later in the half
    is really bad.

  4. just dont sell out the stadium..

  5. Horrible ref..

  6. Fredy Montero!

  7. go impact!!! go MTL

  8. Harsh? I’m a neutral here man and come on, that was a red. High foot, studs
    out, thats an instant red. Thats how you break legs man. It was very very
    clumsy.

  9. Can’t go in studs up and get the player instead of the ball…. always a
    red, good call!

  10. Quite honnestly, If Rivas’s tackle was in the first half, he would of have
    god a red. If Hurtado’s was in the first, he would of have got a yellow.
    Truth is, First half the ref was HORRIBLE for Montreal. Marsch complained
    during his half time interview and had a talk with the ref right after half
    time. Since Don Garber was watching, he decided to turn the tables and
    “even it out”. Was horrendous refereeing. But quite honnestly, MTL lost a
    LOT of points from reffing, bout time we get some back

  11. This match was fixed. That is the only logical conclusion. On two of
    Montreal’s goals a striker was allowed to stiff arm or hold a Sounders
    defender. On the Red card to Hurtado both players went for the ball with
    their studs up. The Montreal guy lunges at the ball at the last second.
    There was also a play in first half where Johnson was cleared out of the
    way with arm in the box in plain view of the ref. The tackle on Montero is
    a 100% no doubt red card in every league in the world.

  12. from a portland fan I agree about the Montero tackle is a red.

  13. Sweet, thank-you mls for extended!

  14. I agree that MLS refs make many bad calls but please stop complaining cause
    Montreal completely dominated this game. It was a massacre any way you look
    at it.

  15. As a Seattle fan, That was an obvious red card for Hurtado, Going in Studs
    up thats a yellow even if he gets near the ball, but he gets no where near
    it and makes contact with his knee , that can be a career ender. But yeah
    rivas should of been sent off aswell

  16. Studs up is such an over used term and hardly relevant to Hurtado’s
    challenge. Rivas had a “studs-up” tackle. JHK clearly is going for the ball
    but is late. No intent to harm. He clips his thigh not the knee if you
    watch the replay. If you’re talking about career ending tackles like the
    one on Zakuani by Mullan, you’re far off in your comparison. This was a
    clear 50/50 challenge that showing red for is ludicrous.

  17. Ugh. Why the thundersticks? So aesthetically annoying. Still though. Tres
    bien, Montreal.

  18. Not sure who had the worse game, the refs of Seattle. Coming from a Seattle
    fan. Rivas tackle on Montero is a straight red!!!! Harsh on Hurtado. No
    consistency. Hope Mark Geiger can re-watch his calls in the game and see
    how horribly wrong he was.

  19. DC United!
