MLS Referee Lockout looming


Gawd, replacement refs in MLS... would be hilarious if there was an improvement.

Yesterday, Taylor said that Durbin admitted the money was available, but MLS and PRO didn't want to pay it to the referees."They don't feel that we're worth it is what it kind of boils down to," said Taylor.

Finally, something that MLS FO and supporters agree on. g:D

Sarcasm aside, I think they have a strong case. The number of full-time officials in this league is very minimal and salaries for all involved are not so great.

Regarding all the info on our DP injuries....have we ever had a DP that has not spent a big part of the season injured and therefore ineffective in terms of helping us get results? I was really hoping for something better with these new guys especially with two of them being younger. Bradley has to meet with a surgeon at the beginning of the season to get the ok to play? What the hell....the more things change the more they stay the same. I hope Nelsen is not really downplaying anything with him saying that all of these injuries are minor and I really hope they are minor.

Once again , TFC start a regular season without ever having fielded their first team once, not even in practice.
Despite all of the bravado and bombast and more importantly despite finally appearing ahead of the game and well organised. we simply cannot get a decent pre-season under our belts. This year it is largely due to bad luck rather than Rob Ford like stupidity of the past, but please when you buy a European in future...just BUY him, don't let him f**k around on his old team's bench for 2 months. (if defoe gets hurt for england today I'm going to take revenge on something TFC)
