    Ejected the entire fan section for being upset over a call? Don't know if anyone said anything out of line, but even then, quite the overreaction.

    Kudos to the ref - threats from the fans in the stands should not be tolerated. About time someone drew the line.

    No reason to even make that call. Yea he left the line, but the shot was in the middle of the goal. Leaving the line early gave the goalie zero advantage.

    I'd love to hear the whole story. From the outside it looks like an extremely thin-skinned ref on a power trip

    Yeah, that's it...or maybe it's the punks/cowards in the stands who yell threats at the refs, while hiding in the "safe anonymity of the crowd," and the bystanders who lack the balls to tell them to shut up.
    After everyone had been warned...

    You sound like you know the story so I'd love to hear it. Like I said, that's just what it looks like based off what I've seen from twitter but I understand there's multiple sides to every story.

    Those who use the term snowflake are more often than not snowflakes themselves.

    Does that matter? Is it only a penalty if an advantage is gained?

    The writer for the Marshalltown paper used the terms "consternation", "aggression", "verbal assault", and "irate" when describing the Marshalltown fans' reaction.

    So maybe the removal of spectators was indeed warranted.

    So does that mean you are a snowflake for saying that? Am one for saying this? The madness.....where does it end?

    In soccer it probably does. Advantage is regularly played. Don’t know the rules well enough to have an opinion here though.

    Not sure what happened but seems like an overreaction to eject everyone. It wouldn’t surprise me if some people did something to be ejected. It would surprise me if everyone did.
