Two days did nothing to change the Seattle Sounders’ conviction that they were done wrong – twice – Saturday in their 1-0 loss at Sporting Kansas City. Coach Sigi Schmid (pictured) and goalkeeper Stefan Frei talked more calmly Monday, than they had over the weekend at Sporting Park. But they remain convinced that one botched offside call took a goal from them, while another paved the way for Sporting’s winner. “Sometimes you don’t get the calls,” Schmid said. The decision that got most of the attention was a penalty on Frei – which was converted for the only goal – after he collided with K.C.’s Dom Dwyer as each went after a 50-50 ball inside the penalty area. “That’s probably the most frustrating call I’ve ever had called against me,” Frei said. “… I get the ball before I make contact with the player, at the same time he makes contact with me. So it’s not like I’m the one charging and he’s not. We’re both going for it.” – Tacoma News Tribune
