The GIFening: Nashville SC falls to Tampa Bay Rowdies

Hey, two days is not enough time for a full game package! I’ll have more from Tampa Bay tomorrow along with some of the usual postgame content from Swope Park. Bear with me on a very congested schedule here.

So close for Belmar

Less close for Belmar

Live, I thought this was a good no-call. With VAR, it’s a penalty (keeper gets no ball, plays the attacker’s body)

Obvious dive into a scissorkick… free kick to the Rowdies.

Not only was this not a yellow card, it wasn’t even a foul. Throw-in Rowdies.

Meanwhile, this was a yellow card. Our boy Guido Gonzales Jr. was profoundly over his head reffing at this level.

Beautiful technique from King.

This is a red card every. single. time. The incapable center official played advantage, and didn’t even come back and give the Rowdies player a talking-to. A PRO suspension would be warranted here (though I doubt they pay enough attention to USL for that).

Nice WHOOP move from Matt Pickens.

Ríos can’t quite tuck it in the back post (and this was a tougher header than I remembered)

One of NSC’s three shots on goal.

Nice central build-up play, the Moloto strike has good pace but isn’t placed in either corner.

Tampa Bay goal

Verily, we were all doing The Kharlton on that day.

The foul that led to the Tampa goal was legit.

Tampa learned early that they could get calls with obvious dives, and there was no competency from the center official to handle it.

Washington got his freakin’ money’s worth on this one, though.

This probably should have been a foul on Washington, no call (again, Gonzales wasn’t biased in anyway, just utterly incapable of executing the duties of his position).
