We wanted to highlight one referee’s decision from this past weekend’s MLS game. In a game between Columbus Crew and Montreal Impact, Mr. Mark Geiger, called a foul on a Montreal Impact player, Jeb Brovsky, for elbowing the opponent. The infringement occurred roughly in the middle of the field and early on in the game in the 19th minute. For these reasons, many referees would be inclined to “look the other way” and only caution the offending player. However, Mr. Geiger correctly sent off the Montreal player who, as replays clearly showed, made no real attempt to play the ball (see video below).
