  What a crazy finish
I'm sorry, but the finish to the LA-Colorado game on Sunday was about as strange as they come. I'm not sure what the referee, Jair Marrufo, was thinking suddenly calling stuff he'd ignored earlier in the match.

Three penalties in the final 5 minutes is just crazy!!

Now, I'm slightly bias but LA did deserve to win...and probably would have wrapped the match up by half-time if they could just put their shots on target. But they didn't. Colorado played a decent match. A draw probably would have been a justified result. But Marrufo had other plans. Refs should not decide outcomes of matches...and to be honest, a couple of those calls were borderline.
