On the Officiating…

Terry Vaughn was simply awful. A solid D- from this grader. Even if you toss out the simply dreadful red card to Burch (above), his performance would rate no better than a D. Was this going to be an easy match to offiicate? Not a chance, not with two rival teams needing points and two rival defenses lacking skills. In light of that, how on earth did Vaughn, someone I only rank better than the intolerable Abbey Okalaja, get assigned this match? The officiating was dreadful as it relates to both teams. But by the second half, DC couldn’t sneeze on an LA skill player without drawing a whistle.

It was quite simply one of the worst non-Okalaja refereeing performances I’ve seen in MLS in a long, long time.
