Your MLS Moment Of The Week

I don't have the time right now to do a full MLS weekend recap/summary, but I do have a few seconds to post an awesome thing that happened in the Timbers/Toronto game at Jeld-Wen Saturday night.

Late in the first half, a Timber was fouled, and the MLS ref got out his MLS Line Marking Foam Spray Can and marked off the ball, then walked...a ways and drew his other line. Problem was, he didn't walk a straight line between ball and goal - he walked off on a slight tangent, and drew a line that was only eight or so yards away from the ball.

This didn't sit right with Portland's captain and kick-taker, Will Johnson, who proceeded to demonstrate the deficiencies in the referee's counting ability prior to taking the kick. This, predictably, didn't sit right with the referee, who yellow carded Johnson for his troubles. Johnson went on to take the free kick, boot it into the wall, and thankfully stay out of trouble the rest of the match.
