Philadelphia Union Vs. Houston Dynamo Live, MLS Cup 2011: Gabriel Farfan Lucky Not To Be Off

SImply put, the Philadelphia Union should be down a man. It doesn't matter if it's the second minute of the match. There's no excuse for Gabriel Farfan not to be sent off after he went in with a high boot and caught Danny Cruz in the head. High boot to the head. That is a red card every single time. 

There was a ball played all the way across to Cruz by the right touchline. It was always going to be Cruz's ball. The best that Farfan could have done is pressure Cruz into booting the ball out of touch, but no, he thought he smart to try and win the ball. The result was a boot to Farfan's head. Jair Marrufo is off in his own little world though and only showed a yellow card. The yellow card indicates he saw the play so there's no way Marrufo can say he missed it. He just screwed up.
