I think I invented new expletives
Creative ways to avoid it because I don’t want my dog to pick up the habit.
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.
Maybe then they’d be competent
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.
In drawing, there are no chokes - only happy accidents.
Can’t wait to hear some bullshit excuse from PRO about this match
An Atlanta tradition
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.
Who says it’s automatic
Ted Unkel is such a terrible ref, he was all over the place on his officiating in that game.
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
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.
BA GAWD, IS THAT LARENTOWICZ’S MUSIC?!
Someone good at photoshop make this happen.
I'm trying to envision which player i want to see batista bomb unkel
Melia “Rock Bottom” part 2
Unkel Fucker strikes again
Unkle said it's almost midnight, fuck this shit.
people were really tired and i think no one would have been upset if ted has blown the whistle at, say, the 87th minute
A true gentleman would’ve empathized with our collective exhaustion and have done so. I concur.
In fact I think that would've been the most optimal timing to call the match tbh
Past Unkel’s bedtime. Dude was ready to get home
2-2 SC, baybeeeeee.
Ted Unkel up to Ted Unkel things and nothing will happen. Not to be dramatic but he is a soccer terrorist
He can't keep getting away with this.
Narrator: But he did
What a shit show this match was. Great fun.
How is this man still a ref?
Cause no one wants to ref. Especially in MLS, so he gets to keep a job
i'll be a ref
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?
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.
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.
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.
I love this match up. It always has awesome energy and it seems like the players have a lot of mutual respect.
we may have chapman tomorrow but at least we didn’t get ted lmao what a tool
That call was pretty bad and you know it...
Just ignore the obvious trolls. They live off the replies
Nasty? Really being over dramatic.
Shitty move Unkel
Hahahaha refs gotta make the red eye home.
Ted is most likely still missing that flight
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.
Are you fucking joking
That's a HORSE shit whistle. Wow.
That was 2v1 get the fuck out of here Ted
How are you going to blow the whistle there?
Ah yes one last fuck up from the ref
Uh I mean I would be thanking him profusely if I was the home team there
Never said I wasn’t lol
*Sometimes maybe good, sometimes maybe shit*
I hate Ted so much
ted unkel enemy of the league
He ran straight into Araujo, should not be a foul
He actually was never touched by Araujo. Straight dive
What a wasted chance for Almada
He's this seasons Justin Meram. He's going to become a favorite if he keeps doing shit like this.
Hot dang Araujo. Almada really should done better.
does nashville… Want to win?
nashville is an inherently neutral city. we have reached our optimal scoreline and it will not be changing
Tell my wife I said... two all
God damnit… *slow clap* you really did it.
Really should have been more goals in this match so far.
FUCKIN SHOOT THAT ALMADA
Fuck I thought that was in
Dwyer has 2 mls goals… which is 2 more than he had the last 2 season
Gold Cup winner Dom Dwyer?
Almada might really be one of those dudes.
Dwyer goals… such cheese
Dom Dwyer so good at making clubs hate him hahaha
He only scores in the most toxic moments he’s like great value Jamie Vardy.
I have depression :(
Great run by Lennon.
well that's not what i was looking for
No need to shush the crowd. There’s like 2k people still there
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
Let’s go! Tied it up baby! Come on Atlanta.
Left themselves completely open there Nashville.
Of course it's dwyer. I expect him to get a red now.
Dom fucking dwyer
MLS AFTER MOTHERFUCKIN DARK
Zubak you gotta shoot that, bro.
That was a beautiful sequence by nashville
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.
MLS ain't really a league where you can have the depth to weather losing your GK, top CB, and top DM.
And CM(Hyndman not seeing time till the 83rd counts).
And please not left back.
I was mainly focusing on the defensive side since our offense is actually holding up okay without Josef for once.
I was just wallowing in despair.
Hyndman only stayed at a what if player…
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.
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.
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.
Dax makes me miss Ozzie… and Jeff… having a vet that reads counters is fun
i can tell the ref is really hurt by the "you suck" chant. we all have bad days
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.
It's Ted Unkel, just a standard day of work for him
That Nashville fan had probably the greatest mustache I have seen. /s
This ref is on a power trip
The Ted Unkel experience. Just need a Ted Unkel Squat Penalty TM
Dax motherfucking McCarty
ted unkel must get off on being booed
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.
We'll be back in the East once the conferences are even again.
I think it’s temporary
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 🤷🏻♂️
oh good. it's loba.
Nashville have so many ex galaxy players. Didn’t know
It’s a real shame that Atlanta hasn’t been able to do anything with the possession they’re having.
Yeah same for Nashville in this half though
Atlanta's keeper looks like he legitimately wants to stab his defenders
Hard to blame him
With Dim Dwyer, anything is possible… Shot over the bar? Probably. Red card? Also possible
Are they still selling alcohol
Does Nashville have blue laws? Sunday morning quickly approaching.
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.
Camera person falling asleep lol
Fight fight fight
De John with the snow plow
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!
3 hours of a lightning delay...don't blame those who left haha
Stadium is nice I just really don't like the seat color pattern
my only complaint is that the stadium shadow looks terrible on tv during some daytime games. not quite wembley bad but not ideal
I think There’s still more people in the stadium after a 4 hour weather delay than most Red Bull games
Can't do anything against this Nashville defense
Is Nashville still claiming they are gold and not yellow? Come on, guys.
It's *technically* Electric Gold, which yes, looks more yellow than gold.
Gotcha. That makes more sense
is cincinatti still claiming skyline is chili?
Touché. But you cannot seriously tell me you think your uniforms are gold, unless they look drastically different in person than on TV
we call it gold, so it's gold. I mean...who cares really?
Gold card just issued
Hey don't bring skyline into this
Don’t bring skyline into anything, especially my house.
I fucking love skyline
When you absolve any expectation for it to be chili, it’s amazing
I swear this announcer wants Nashville to win
Jesus Christ, Bobby punching that uncontested ball away rather than catching it is clear indicator of his level.
Infuriating. Our defense cleared out Hany for him to catch it.
Lol Sapong whining instead of playing advantage
You gotta catch that Bobby! Don't just punch it
Dang I was waiting for Godoy… to get a 2nd yellow
Joe Willis is all of Nashville's dad with that sweet dad stache
please help, I cannot figure out what channel this is on
Joe Willis looks like a Joe Willis
Most likely took the open seats of fans that left during the delay.
I was the game and maybe 5-10% of the crowd was Atlanta fans at most
De John has really stepped up for a min contract guy
He’s been out of position on both goals…
I wonder how effective fan chants are when the majority of teams have the same exact chants
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.
well, ideally we do it all the time. at the store, at work, wherever
You think they’re effective at all?
Ouch! Not a foul but that’s gotta hurt
nashville should replace its seat pattern with one of those hermann grid optical illusions
Magic eye, I see a sailboat
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.
Totally missed the opportunity, my bad
Araujo has had 3 quality chances and hasn't put one on goal. He's so much better than this.
Willis ate mushrooms during the weather delay
Best SNL skit since down by the river or always be cobbling, I don’t do time lines well
hany has decided he WILL be dribbling today no matter how unnecessary it might be
Ted Unkel has gotten directly in the way of our buildup play at least 3-4 times so far
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.
For real, don't remember the last time I've seen an official obstruct passing lanes so often as Ted has tonight.
The verb is “unkled”
