New Jeff Bradley column

Jeff Bradley’s regular column is up on MLSNet

10. I’m not one to rail on MLS officials. Really, they have a difficult job and I hate that so many of the MLS team-level (not national) announcers drone on endlessly about the refs. But, the Ali Curtis goal that was disallowed on Saturday night was one of the most puzzling calls I’ve ever seen in my life. Taking a short corner, Hristo Stoitchkov served a perfect cross into the box. Curtis went up in traffic and headed the ball into the goal. On the replays I saw there was not a single angle that showed anything resembling a foul. With goals on the decline (last time I did the math), you hate to see goals taken off the board when there’s not a foul on the play.
