We all saw what on-loan LA Galaxy midfielder Steven Gerrard did - even the ref - but there will be additional review of a separate stamping incident, that of Martin Skrtel stepping on David de Gea, at the end of Sunday's 2-1 Manchester United win. UPDATE: FA charges will be brought, apparently.
Diego Costa hurt himself in Chelsea's win, and will miss Spain's qualifier this weekend.
They all look alike, vol. 4: Ref sends off wrong West Brom player. Seriously, start using video evidence, please.
Mesut Özil, Party Machine? No. No he is not. This is not a story.
On the pitch, Barcelona took control of La Liga with a 2-1 win over Real Madrid.
Apparently, Gareth Bale sucks now.
Orlando City is poised to become MLS' latest success story, with 60,000+ at their home opener and another 30,000 at game two. Vancouver handed OCSC their first loss, but that story was overshadowed by the fact that there was apparently crowd trouble between OCSC's supporter group and traveling Vancouver supporters. A word of advice, OCSC: Be more Cascadia and less 1906 Ultra.
Speaking of 1906 Ultras and things they don't deserve, San Jose opened their new stadium this weekend.
For some insane reason, the New York Red Bulls fired coach, ex-player, and general Red Bull legend Mike Petke after last season. Supporters weren't/aren't happy about this, and made their unhappiness known this weekend.
