    With all the super stuff Seba is producing on the field every once in a while, I feel that Josy has been more important to this team in the most important games so far...

    Over the past few months, the players have generally been taking golf carts to their cars after the games. So few are stopping for autographs and photos. Then comes Jozy hobbling over to chat with the few of us standing around after the game. The one guy who really should be on a cart, comes by to say hi. Awesome.

    Seriously, golf carts? That's hilarious.

    I think where you lose people is in the vitriol with which you refer to our players. I've quoted the above, from you, but in a couple posts, well, you go out of your way to acknowledge the fact everything imaginable that could have happened to provoked Jozy, did… only to then snap on him for reacting.

    People often speak about expecting professionalism, and I agree, to an extent; certainly expect more from them than I would, say, Sunday league players, but it seems some would have them composed as one might do working an office job. They're paid to work in high-octane situations and are human; these moments are inevitable, and so I think it's unfair to go off on them, like this, especially given the context of this specific case.

    Such misdirected vitriol, for me, exacerbates the issue of diving and what not (urks me, as well, but I try to keep scope), as it only occurs because of poor officiating; if players are getting calls, whilst remaining on their feet, then they're not going to flop, because you're right: it's embarrassing, and many are alphas. The focus must be the ref. calling things, on the day, and the absolute hash he made of the job.
    Agree to disagree. I love the guy. Love the team. Will never turn my back on them - ever. But diving is a cancer to the sport. Simple. Have I ever embellished fouls on me when I felt the other team were hacking? Sure, maybe a few times. But there is a line for me that shouldn't be crossed - feigning injury for the purposes of getting other players sent off. This is my standard, and I won't deviate from it. We're better than that.

    All is forgiven. It would be impossible for Jozy to apologize about it because it would be admitting guilt, and could possibly get him in trouble. Plus, he's not a diver in general, so I don't feel like he owes anything to us. I just expect better.

    And with that - LET'S GET THAT CUP!

    This is where you lose me; Jozy was pushed (read: didn't dive), and, in his pent up frustration, went down easy, to draw attention to it.

    Again, after conceding that literally everything imaginable that could have happened to provoke him, did, as well as the bold parts above, it seems strange for you to have come for him with the vitriol you did, in your initial post… but, to each his own, I suppose.

    Agree to disagree, indeed (not about the cup, though).

    Jozy stepped up to his face provoking the push, then proceeded to drop like a sack of bricks. Not saying Kljestan is a saint, just saying what Jozy did was reprehensible... something I'd expect to see from a pansy in leagues where this sort of thing is more nuanced.

    Go team

    Right… but, as said, you expressed understanding for some cases of embellishment, and that you agree he were hacked and otherwise provoked in many ways, that game.

    For me, the context means that, whilst I actually agree with you about diving and that, in general, and am equally sickened, it's not always so black & white, and I can understand him having been at his wit's end, in this case—at least, with all the vitriol I had for NYRB, on the night, I couldn't bring myself to cuss out Altidore, for trying to give them a taste of their own medicine.

    Guess I'll leave it there.

    Ultimately, two wrongs don't make a right though.

    Think the point were slightly more nuanced than "right or wrong."

    That is to say, I agree with the above…

    As far as I'm concerned Altidore wrote his name into Toronto sports lore tonight as one of the city's best playoff performers ever. 7 goals and 4 assists in 11 playoff games now, a championship-winning goal and a hair's breath from it being his second, and all around beastly performances again and again. And he did it on a bad ankle this year. God damn legend.

    What Jozy did this post season was nothing short of incredible! That goal should always be honoured!

    Very catchy and familiar, yet with enough variation for it to work, methinks.

    Starting to think Jozy might just make it official and switch citizenship, haha. He retweeted someone saying this today:

    "The United States can hate him all they want. The rest of Canada can hate him all they want. @JozyAltidore is ours now. He is Toronto’s. He’s a hero here, a legend, an icon, and he can stay as long as he damn well pleases."
    “Heroism breaks its heart, and idealism its back, on the intransigence of the credulous and the mediocre, manipulated by the cynical and the corrupt.” ~Christopher Hitchens
