To start off my MLS thoughts of the weekend, I won’t mention the dribbling circus that Thierry Henry busted out on Saturday night against Los Angeles. Yes, impressive. Not, great enough to mention, especially since it didn’t result in a scoring chance.
1. The issue of terrible tackling needs to be, well, tackled in the MLS. After one of the most gifted players in the league, Real Salt Lake’s Javier Morales, suffered a horrific injury from a similar silly tackle that downed Seattle’s Steve Zakuani, the league has a perfect opportunity to make a statement. The nine-game sentence handed down to Colorado’s Brian Mullan after his ruthless tackle ended Zakuani’s season, should also be slapped on Marcos Mondaini’s tackle on Morales.
