Creative ways to avoid it because I don’t want my dog to pick up the habit.


WelpSigh

i think it'd be cool if mls did like a Twitch Plays Referee event. everyone can vote on what they want the referee to do, and then they have to do it.


rasta_pasta_man

Maybe then they’d be competent


BoukenGreen

They would be worse because 99% of the people watching a match from their house or bar don’t know the laws of the game.


WarEagleAnchorDown

In drawing, there are no chokes - only happy accidents.


rasta_pasta_man

Can’t wait to hear some bullshit excuse from PRO about this match


Deofol7

An Atlanta tradition


remonumon

I've always kind of thought it was stupid to add time just because there's some kind of attacking phase going on...either there's enough time or there isn't. that said, we literally subbed during stoppage time. that's an automatic +30 seconds. in short, we got Unkel'd.


BoukenGreen

Who says it’s automatic


Galrik

Ted Unkel is such a terrible ref, he was all over the place on his officiating in that game.


runningwaffles19

Maybe it was all the beer during the rain delay but I thought he was better than the Wednesday officiating Edit - we also missed the last 10 min of the game


Tha_Daahkness

Worth it. This is such a fun match up. I fucking love it. GG again. Edit: to be clear, I mean worth waiting for. Also fuck Ted Unkel. Can't wait till a player punches him and we can have that gif on deck.


tellurmomisaidthanks

BA GAWD, IS THAT LARENTOWICZ’S MUSIC?!


Tha_Daahkness

Someone good at photoshop make this happen.


BakedZiti69

I'm trying to envision which player i want to see batista bomb unkel


finn_enviro89

Melia “Rock Bottom” part 2


longlive289s

lol....fucking Unkel


Bammer1386

Unkel Fucker strikes again


mcpicklejar

Unkle said it's almost midnight, fuck this shit.


WelpSigh

people were really tired and i think no one would have been upset if ted has blown the whistle at, say, the 87th minute


LeoSageEnergy

A true gentleman would’ve empathized with our collective exhaustion and have done so. I concur.


IABJordan

In fact I think that would've been the most optimal timing to call the match tbh


new_accountFC

Past Unkel’s bedtime. Dude was ready to get home


IABJordan

2-2 SC, baybeeeeee.


BakedZiti69

Ted Unkel up to Ted Unkel things and nothing will happen. Not to be dramatic but he is a soccer terrorist


Zone-Clean

He can't keep getting away with this.


tellurmomisaidthanks

Narrator: But he did


human1st

What a shit show this match was. Great fun.


BeerAndFuckingPizza

How is this man still a ref?


new_accountFC

Cause no one wants to ref. Especially in MLS, so he gets to keep a job


WelpSigh

i'll be a ref


BeerAndFuckingPizza

But specifically Unkel and Toledo I just think I’d rather have a highschool volunteer ref. There have to be some excellent refs in the NWSL or USL that could ref a big national broadcast rivalry game right?


cheeseburgerandrice

oh man you should watch more USL if you think they would be an improvement. Or open cup play where lower league refs are used.


Tha_Daahkness

Meh, it's ok. It's not MLS without fuckery and shenanigans from the ref. At the beginning of the game I accepted there would be absolutely atrocious calls because Ted Unkel. All things considered, this wasn't that bad for a Ted game.


auhansel

Agree. This was actually not an awful game from him because there weren’t really any massive misses. He blew it dead quick, but that typically happens with weather games like this. It was nice to see two teams play without fouling like crazy. It was good to watch these two teams play in USOC as well.


Tha_Daahkness

I love this match up. It always has awesome energy and it seems like the players have a lot of mutual respect.


finn_enviro89

we may have chapman tomorrow but at least we didn’t get ted lmao what a tool

[удалено]


Bolarb

That call was pretty bad and you know it...


new_accountFC

Just ignore the obvious trolls. They live off the replies


Podlaskie

Nasty? Really being over dramatic.


DanSanderman

Troll harder.


1PMagain

Shitty move Unkel


LomoSaltado

Hahahaha refs gotta make the red eye home.


da_widower_sos

Ted is most likely still missing that flight


LomoSaltado

Dude has the face of someone that has Sunday morning plans with his SO that he is going to be spending most of the day making up for missing. And he has a week full of ATL Twitter screed to look forward to.


Buckeye717

Are you fucking joking


billgluckman7

Gg Nashville…


Bpar84

That's a HORSE shit whistle. Wow.


starry_cobra

That was 2v1 get the fuck out of here Ted


Some_Man_Person

How are you going to blow the whistle there?


CaHu20

Ah yes one last fuck up from the ref


LomoSaltado

Uh I mean I would be thanking him profusely if I was the home team there


CaHu20

Never said I wasn’t lol


dilla506944

*Sometimes maybe good, sometimes maybe shit*


billgluckman7

I hate Ted so much


j00dypoo

Unkel'd


finn_enviro89

ted unkel enemy of the league


Iama_Kokiri_AMA

He ran straight into Araujo, should not be a foul


SnooObjections5180

He actually was never touched by Araujo. Straight dive


1PMagain

What a wasted chance for Almada


[deleted]

[удалено]


Elvem

He's this seasons Justin Meram. He's going to become a favorite if he keeps doing shit like this.


JBAinATL

Hot dang Araujo. Almada really should done better.


finn_enviro89

does nashville… Want to win?


WelpSigh

nashville is an inherently neutral city. we have reached our optimal scoreline and it will not be changing


technicolor62

Tell my wife I said... two all


tellurmomisaidthanks

God damnit… *slow clap* you really did it.


CaHu20

Probably not


human1st

Really should have been more goals in this match so far.


Iama_Kokiri_AMA

FUCKIN SHOOT THAT ALMADA


Iama_Kokiri_AMA

Fuck I thought that was in


billgluckman7

Dwyer has 2 mls goals… which is 2 more than he had the last 2 season


Zone-Clean

Gold Cup winner Dom Dwyer?


JBAinATL

Almada might really be one of those dudes.


LomoSaltado

Dwyer goals… such cheese


BeerAndFuckingPizza

Dom Dwyer so good at making clubs hate him hahaha


LomoSaltado

He only scores in the most toxic moments he’s like great value Jamie Vardy.


CaHu20

I have depression :(


jmacrosof

Great run by Lennon.


WelpSigh

well that's not what i was looking for


new_accountFC

No need to shush the crowd. There’s like 2k people still there


RodJohnsonSays

I think he was telling the crowd to be kind and courteous to their neighbors by keeping the music low as they exit the stadium


Zone-Clean

lol Dom


Poppyjasper

Let’s go! Tied it up baby! Come on Atlanta.


tateand99

Nice goal


human1st

Left themselves completely open there Nashville.


j00dypoo

Of course it's dwyer. I expect him to get a red now.


1PMagain

Beautiful


Iama_Kokiri_AMA

Dom fucking dwyer


LAFCPEREZ

Lmao Dwyer


Bolarb

WHO ELSE


finn_enviro89

MLS AFTER MOTHERFUCKIN DARK


IABJordan

Zubak you gotta shoot that, bro.


the-quenchiest

That was a beautiful sequence by nashville


JBAinATL

This Atlanta team is so impossibly frustrating. I get the injury issue, but I just can’t help but feel it should still be much better than this.


suplehdog

MLS ain't really a league where you can have the depth to weather losing your GK, top CB, and top DM.


Tha_Daahkness

And striker. And CM(Hyndman not seeing time till the 83rd counts). And please not left back.


suplehdog

True. I was mainly focusing on the defensive side since our offense is actually holding up okay without Josef for once.


Tha_Daahkness

I was just wallowing in despair.


LAFCPEREZ

Hyndman only stayed at a what if player…


Tha_Daahkness

Honestly he was playing really well for us before the injury, just in a quiet way. He's smart on the ball, and makes a lot of good, safe passes but he still has the willingness to play direct. And he still hasn't started a game so I can only assume he's really not 100%. But for all I know he just isn't as good as Rossetto and Ibarra now. I'm not in training.


LomoSaltado

Watching Nashville games as a Red Bulls fan comes with so many emotions. Dax fighting for every ball Sean and Muyl hustling. Hany Mukhtar impossible to not like.


LeoSageEnergy

We love our ex NYRB trifecta sooo much. Sean was exactly who we needed in the midfield, Dax is our understated dependable glue, and Muyl’s improvement has been UNREAL. Thanks for continuing to support them.


billgluckman7

Dax makes me miss Ozzie… and Jeff… having a vet that reads counters is fun


WelpSigh

i can tell the ref is really hurt by the "you suck" chant. we all have bad days


Poppyjasper

Ted Unkel does get a lot of hate. Sometimes we forget he’s probably one of the most veteran refs in MLS. I’m pretty sure he went to the 2018 World Cup to help with the first implementation of VAR.


starry_cobra

It's Ted Unkel, just a standard day of work for him


Poppyjasper

That Nashville fan had probably the greatest mustache I have seen. /s


Typical_Texpat

This ref is on a power trip


BeerAndFuckingPizza

The Ted Unkel experience. Just need a Ted Unkel Squat Penalty TM


Zone-Clean

First time?


IABJordan

Dax motherfucking McCarty


finn_enviro89

ted unkel must get off on being booed


BeerAndFuckingPizza

Is it weird Atlanta and Nashville fans being in different conferences? Seems kind of unfair for this matchup to only be once a year. I guess it allows for an Atlanta v Nashville MLS cup while the conferences are unbalanced.


IABJordan

We'll be back in the East once the conferences are even again.


1PMagain

I think it’s temporary


BeerAndFuckingPizza

That’s what I’m assuming as well, but I always thought KC would end up back in the eastern conference and that never happened 🤷🏻‍♂️


WelpSigh

oh good. it's loba.


LAFCPEREZ

Nashville have so many ex galaxy players. Didn’t know


Poppyjasper

It’s a real shame that Atlanta hasn’t been able to do anything with the possession they’re having.


1PMagain

Yeah same for Nashville in this half though


hghpandaman

Atlanta's keeper looks like he legitimately wants to stab his defenders


lechebanda

Hard to blame him


billgluckman7

With Dim Dwyer, anything is possible… Shot over the bar? Probably. Red card? Also possible


LAFCPEREZ

Are they still selling alcohol


LomoSaltado

Does Nashville have blue laws? Sunday morning quickly approaching.


BeerAndFuckingPizza

That’s the second or third cross ball that has gone right over a Nashville player laying down or sitting with their hands up in the air lmao.


Bolarb

Camera person falling asleep lol


WelpSigh

cj stop


Live_Palm_Trees

Fight fight fight


1PMagain

De John with the snow plow


BeerAndFuckingPizza

Just tuned in and was surprised that A. The game was still on after my nap and B. That no one is in this gorgeous new stadium. Rain delay explains all that pretty well. Respect to the fans that stuck around!


hghpandaman

3 hours of a lightning delay...don't blame those who left haha


Bolarb

Stadium is nice I just really don't like the seat color pattern


WelpSigh

my only complaint is that the stadium shadow looks terrible on tv during some daytime games. not quite wembley bad but not ideal


TexasSprings

I think There’s still more people in the stadium after a 4 hour weather delay than most Red Bull games


Iama_Kokiri_AMA

Can't do anything against this Nashville defense


inspecter77

Is Nashville still claiming they are gold and not yellow? Come on, guys.


IABJordan

It's *technically* Electric Gold, which yes, looks more yellow than gold.


inspecter77

Gotcha. That makes more sense


WelpSigh

is cincinatti still claiming skyline is chili?


inspecter77

Touché. But you cannot seriously tell me you think your uniforms are gold, unless they look drastically different in person than on TV


oldboot

we call it gold, so it's gold. I mean...who cares really?


1PMagain

Gold card just issued


Iama_Kokiri_AMA

Hey don't bring skyline into this


JBAinATL

Don’t bring skyline into anything, especially my house.


Iama_Kokiri_AMA

I fucking love skyline


inspecter77

When you absolve any expectation for it to be chili, it’s amazing


Iama_Kokiri_AMA

I swear this announcer wants Nashville to win


Elder_John

Jesus Christ, Bobby punching that uncontested ball away rather than catching it is clear indicator of his level.


ichinii

Infuriating. Our defense cleared out Hany for him to catch it.


1PMagain

Lol Sapong whining instead of playing advantage


Iama_Kokiri_AMA

You gotta catch that Bobby! Don't just punch it


1PMagain

Dang I was waiting for Godoy… to get a 2nd yellow


Iama_Kokiri_AMA

Joe Willis is all of Nashville's dad with that sweet dad stache


tuttlebuttle

please help, I cannot figure out what channel this is on


DanSanderman

FS2


Iama_Kokiri_AMA

Joe Willis looks like a Joe Willis

IABJordan

Most likely took the open seats of fans that left during the delay.


TexasSprings

I was the game and maybe 5-10% of the crowd was Atlanta fans at most


Typical_Texpat

No


BluePariah

De John has really stepped up for a min contract guy


billgluckman7

He’s been out of position on both goals…


Iama_Kokiri_AMA

I wonder how effective fan chants are when the majority of teams have the same exact chants


WelpSigh

i've been trying to get the Nashville Shriek going. imagine 30,000 people doing a banshee scream at once whenever the other team has possession. incredibly intimidating.


[deleted]

[удалено]


WelpSigh

well, ideally we do it all the time. at the store, at work, wherever


ewyourfaceew

You think they’re effective at all?


tateand99

Ouch! Not a foul but that’s gotta hurt


WelpSigh

nashville should replace its seat pattern with one of those hermann grid optical illusions


BATHTUBSURFER

Magic eye, I see a sailboat


Tactful-Cactus

Hahaha you dumb bastard, its a schooner not a sailboat. *Edit, I really wish you had said schooner so I didn't have to reverse the line.


BATHTUBSURFER

Totally missed the opportunity, my bad


Elder_John

Araujo has had 3 quality chances and hasn't put one on goal. He's so much better than this.


Live_Palm_Trees

Willis ate mushrooms during the weather delay


BATHTUBSURFER

Best SNL skit since down by the river or always be cobbling, I don’t do time lines well


WelpSigh

hany has decided he WILL be dribbling today no matter how unnecessary it might be


atlutdprospects

Ted Unkel has gotten directly in the way of our buildup play at least 3-4 times so far


tmh8901

He reffed the fire game on Wednesday. I will say the same thing I said there: He is the Joe Wsst or Joey Crawford of MLS. Terrible official always making the game about himself.


Elder_John

For real, don't remember the last time I've seen an official obstruct passing lanes so often as Ted has tonight.


BATHTUBSURFER

The verb is “unkled”
