VIDEO BUZZ: Ref at Sounders match missed several calls

You don’t have to be from Seattle to feel like the Sounders got the short end of calls in their MLS Playoffs match on Thursday against the Whitecaps.

There are memes going around about just how badly lead official Baldomero Toledo messed up multiple calls and  use of the Video Replay tool.

The18.com says this:

Take, for example, Thursday night’s MLS Western Conference Semifinal between Seattle and Vancouver. With the scores level 0-0, and a thrilling 0-0 on aggregate, Nicolas Lodeiro played Nouhou Tolo into the Vancouver area with an excellent pass.

Nouhou’s pace got the better of Jake Nerwinski and the Whitecaps defender pulled on a handful of jersey before attempting an awkward tackle. According to Stu Holden it was 100% a penalty. According to Taylor Twellman it was 100% a penalty. According to Alexi Lalas it was a penalty.

  1. We only see fouls against Sounders but none against Whitecaps Meaning that perhaps similar fouls were done by Sounders and therefore letting play go. However use of video should have resulted on penalty kick. If a kick is awarded for each foul, game would never end. Also advantaged is considered on fouls. I say this even though I am a Sounder fan and a FIFA referee for 20 years. Now retired.
