Today in Philadelphia Goalkeeping Gaffs

Get Microsoft Silverlight

I won't bag on Chris Seitz too much for this because I'm sure the sum total of the series of unfortunate events that have plagued his young Philadelphia career so far are bothering him enough. He doesn't need me to tell him that things are wildly off the rails right now and neither do you (you have cable, and you've seen it for yourself).

I will however introduce you to a Blaine from Pretty in Pink-looking son of bitch named Brian Perk just so you can say you've heard of him when he moves up the Union goalkeeping ladder. I know the Philly coaching staff has said repeatedly that Seitz is their guy, but if a keeper that is in the USMNT pool (cough, Troy Perkins, cough) can be replaced by a 19 year-old kid don't think it can't happen to Chris Seitz.

Definite gaffe, but Roger Torres ducking his head out of the way of the free kick probably won't sit too well with Nowak.

It was Torres fault. What a big mistake!!! At least jump and turn to your back!!!

Neato. Silverlight doesn't work in Opera.

I wonder at what point MLS will finally say, "Huh, maybe we shouldn't have picked a video delivery system that doesn't work well on every browser, and that will prevent a lot of people from viewing our stuff at work, school and other places."

No offense @Me Here but who the hell uses Opera?

while Torres made a mistake, as my dad used to tell me..."if you get your hands on it, there's no excuse for not catching it".

Annoying. Silverlight auto-starts on FF PC.
