This is not a vent board or any other kind of therapy. Before you hit the POST button, ask yourself if your contribution will add to the level of discussion going on.
Important notes on articles:
- Please do not copy entire articles into your post; rather, provide links to them.. We are now links-only for ALL Internet publications. If only a small portion of the article pertains to your post, Fair Use allows you to copy those one or two paragraphs, provided you cite the author's name and the publication for which he writes. Otherwise, put a link in the HTTP Link box.
- Even if you're copying a reference to an article, provide a link to the page from which the article came. We're trying to cut down on duplicate topics, and the posting process will check the link to your article to see if it's already being discussed on this board. At the very least, you'll save yourself some grief on the boards.
- If your first reaction after reading the article you're going to share is the author is uninformed / stupid / a jerk / all of the above, it's not worth sharing with anyone. Not every article needs to be discussed. The more the hair-pulling articles are discussed (e.g. ESPN Page 2), the more the authors will write hair-pulling articles.

Combo platter... by RyanShaySalvo
Do you think it could have been a combination of the USA being less aggressive and Jamaica pushing the attack considerably more after the goal? That looked like the case to me. If so, then Jamaica partially screwed themselves by playing so many dudes behind the ball early on. Not that I am complaining. From the time of the goal until about the 86th minute when all organization fell to pieces, Jamaica were making me plenty nervous.
That being said, the first 2/3 of that match was an impressive display by Klinsmann's side, especially so given they were missing key personnel.
