Game Thoughts... GSH's for 2/22

Gaven, Schelotto, Hejduk's: Are the top Crew contemplations of the day. If you're new to the Crew... Video example of what is a Gaven, Schelotto, Hejduk.

Full Game:

Silly Thoughts

What I meant by that is the two announcers said that a Charleston Battery player got yellow carded for booting a ball away from the reach of the referee when in fact it was probably a hand ball right outside of the 18 yard box.

Then said Afful didn't learn the lesson and got yellow carded as well for booting the ball away from the referee when in fact it was likely because he put a Battery player in a choke hold.
Actually would love to work with them. Because when I produced soccer, the announcers were always the most anal retentive with their folders of information.

Have seen some wild organization systems and announcers freaking out in gesticulation when they lost something.

And I don't really think this was because of me. But, it's fun to think that it was.
18 minutes later..
My guess on Francis. Probably concussion as well from a head on collision with Ola. Worked well the first time.

And did the referee check a video screen on the side of the field on a Abubukar hand ball? I guess referee was checking whether it was inside or outside the box? And since the replay showed he never touched the ball or caused a foul, lol call was outside.

Serious Thoughts

No one impressed me really tonight 1st half.

Higuain had good moments and so did the Crew early on in the game, but later in that half the Battery controlled the game.

2nd half things got much better with Meram, Abu, Raitala, Williams, and Naess. They got back to controlling the field.

Also, with Steffen.
Overall, not excellent when you tie a USL team (considered 2nd, 3rd division depending on who you ask) thanks to an own goal.

But, good considering we have the most points in the Challenge Cup. Might as well go win the thing on Saturday. Cannot hurt.

Video Assistant Referee System

Please no.
Sometimes you get cheated in soccer, as in life. I rather just have the game keep moving. What I like to soccer compared to other sports.
