Schmetzer had them playing this garbage style even when the Sounders were healthy. A club with Seattle’s resources should not look like a European team trying not to get relegated.

Seattle gets a 1-0 lead on a hand ball call that I'm not sure was at all valid. This after McCann got tackled in the box on a corner and there was no review.

Seattle's going to park the bus hard now, and they're playing like a bunch of scrunch-faced creeps. Faking like they've been hit in the face when they haven't. Whining for VAR to give them cheap PK's. Deliberately chopping up the game. Very unlikable team.

Seattle ultimately got the 1-1 tie, which is like a win for them under the circumstances. I have no respect for the way they did it. I have no problem with an overmatched team making the tactical choice to park the bus. Cripes, my first entre into the soccer world was watching the USMNT under Bora Milutinović master the art of parking the bus. I can't respect a team that chops up play and tries to manufacture advantages through all sorts of play acting, histrionics, and generally dishonorable play. Every time Seattle went after a 50/50 ball where there was physical contact they would not only throw themselves to the ground, but they'd grab their faces like they'd been elbowed to try and draw a cheap red card. I have zero respect for that team after what I saw today.
