If the Orange Smurfs get their hand smacked for flairs, how can MLS not come down on the BS being thrown *at* players last night.


Because last night wasn't an MLS match? I imagine MLS could get involved, but I would think any punishment would go from CONCACAF through the CSA first...

True, but at the same time, they are an MLS club. CONCACAF can ask MLS to sort it out as TFC will probably not play another home Champs League match until late summer. CSA are spineless and wouldn't be able to do a thing. Also, TFC allowing it sets a precedence which they had worked to eliminate. Allowing it last night only makes it easier for fans to think it's okay to start doing that BS again. The good news is, that was LAs only trip to Toronto this year.

Beckham's f-u to the corner was suffice for me as their "punishment."
But, on second thought, prosecute them to the full extent of the law, eh!

Yeah, I couldn't believe it when he subbed on an attacking player for a defender.

It took me a second to understand what was going on: "Wait, he's going to put Barrett in defense … ? Oh no wait, we're going with three at the back!" Definitely a surprise.

Edit: Just watched that video on the previous page of Beckham's reaction to the second goal. Hell yeah, show 'em who's boss. And Landon blowing a kiss, Magee cupping his ear … I feel a little more smug now — vicariously smug, if that's a thing — than I did two minutes ago.

We came back to tie them in a loud, hostile environment on a field made of concrete covered in threadbare fuzzy plastic. When we get 'em in the HDC I think we can be reasonably assured.

Probably half the fans in the stadium were hardcore TFC fans. The other half were super club lovers but were still cheering on TFC. Lots of streamers...even in our section. Only saw 3 other Galaxy "fans" total.

I wouldn't agree if MLS punished TFC. Concacaf needs to do it and they won't.
BIGGER. STRONGER. FASTER.

I doubt CONCACAF realized there was a CCL game this past Wednesday. Absolutely nothing will be done. Nothing.

I don't understand why Beckham was so butthurt over the streamers. The can I get, sort of...an empty can doesn't have much mass...but anyway, um...no I don't get it. It's not like it was a rock or a spear or a hand grenade. It was a couple packs of streamers, an empty can and 45,000 TFC fans.

Punish what?
