    There’s a big difference between overgrown crabgrass and ice and snow.

      As for replays, that’s my other point. The schedule is so tight that there’s not any space for replays or postponements.
      So there is precedence for a Concacaf team to do just this - whine about the weather during WQ qualifying - and force a replay/draw?

        Costa Rica tried to in 2013 after a snow game against the US in Denver though were unsuccessful because they wanted to continue during the game and protested afterwards.

        If they had refused to continue playing and forced the referee to abandon the match they would've forced a replay or a potential draw (or just give the US the win since it was the second half and the US lead 1-0).

        The hypothetical is this:

        Costa Rica (or Mexico) shows up in Edmonton and either pregame or in the first half it begins to snow (not unheard of as Edmonton averages about 21cm of snow in November).

        Costa Rica, having been through the mess in Denver in 2013, says "heck no we ain't doing this again" and refuses to continue.

        Referee and Match Commissioner agree, match is suspended due to snow and icy field conditions. Forecast indicates snow for the rest of the night so the match will have to played/restarted the next afternoon.

        Costa Rica says "no can do, we're flying commercial and our itinerary cannot be changed to get us back home in time for our next match in three days, we're out of here."

        FIFA ultimately says "there's no space in the international calendar to make this game up before the qualifying deadline, the match will be considered a draw."

        • What a stupid rule. If you refuse to play you should forfeit and take the loss…

            That's basically how International Soccer works. It's just different from North American sports in pretty much every way.
            It's never too early to start the Pre-game festivities

              FYP. Smart teams at all levels will try to pull stuff like this all the time.

              In fairness, it’s not like other sports don’t have teams trying to pull scummy crap all the time. Heck, Little League Baseball is practically built on it.

                  "USSF's PR stunts and bargaining through the media will not bring us any closer to a fair agreement," the USWNTPA charged on Twitter.
                  That’s a bold statement to make considering the USWNTPA has done nothing but try to negotiate through the media.

                    • Roster for the next window announced.

                      No Pulisic or Reyna due to injuries.

                      Edit: No Sargent. Not injured but probably due to the fact he’s a forward who doesn’t score goals.

                        • I’ve read the obviously horrible stuff that’s come out about the NWSL but holy **** the “burn it all down” takes from people are terrible, especially from those with axes to grind in the US Soccer system.

                            • Weston McKennie in the lineup...what a punishment

                              I am also coming to the realization that Christian Pulisic will never fulfill his potential because he is never on the field.

                              Jamaica gets away with what should have been a red card.

                                He did miss two games, it is what it is.

                                Been saying this for at least a year, he’s made of glass and is too stubborn in his play.
