my sister just tried to ask me if i wanted to go to bed but instead it came out “Do you need to use the sleep?”

and then she just kinda looked really horrified at herself and whispered

"Maybe i need to use the sleep"

In this photoset: 

  • Two of the most talented, skilled players the US has produced
  • doing shitty, unsportsmanlike things
  • in moments of extreme frustration after games full of aggressively physical defense and wild challenges
  • which had not been called by the refs

This is not to argue what Deuce or Pinoe did was ok or justified. Nor did they ‘get away with it’ entirely. The officials didn’t see Dempsey’s nut shot in real time, but the league handed him a two game suspension later that week. Rapinoe took her cheap shot in full view of the officials, while the referee was running towards the play — somehow, she only got a yellow, but we’ll see if the league takes further action.

The point is OFFICIATING MATTERS. Lax or inconsistent officiating corrodes the ability of skilled players to use their skills. It destroys the continuity of gameplay, and it fosters frustration, resentment, and bad sportsmanship, no matter one’s temperament. Dempsey may make a pill of himself about MLS officiating, but he (and others, for example Nagbe) are often bulldozed without consequences, putting not only their paychecks but their wins and their health at risk. By the point in the Reign-Breakers game where Pinoe committed this foul, Avant’s only successful strategy for defending Pinoe had been to body check her; she had stopped trying to defend straight up. Pinoe had also take a couple other hard hits, including at least one from behind. After 80 minutes of that, Pinoe’s patience snapped. 

Again, that doesn’t excuse these retaliatory actions. But it does mean the NWSL (after deciding on an adequate suspension for Rapinoe) and the MLS both need to instruct officials to tighten up and/or offer better training and officiating clinics, and make a clear statement: this isn’t the direction any serious league can allow gameplay to take

On the eve of the Boston Marathon, we at Spartan Race, along with the country, pay tribute to all the victims and survivors of last year’s attack.
Pictured are athletes and citizens who lived through the events and won’t let tragedy grind them to a halt. This series shot by Robert X. Fogerty for Dear World captures the resilience of those affected that can’t be dampened. Please visit their site to learn more about these people’s stories and pay tribute. 

Boston is as strong as community as the world has. We are proud to be part of it. On Marathon Monday, we will be there and along with the rest of the world, we will be watching a city recover as one.
