The story of the DC United/Sporting Kansas City game essentially began and ended with the offside call on Ike Opara’s disallowed goal in the 30th minute. I was at the game, sitting where the RFK Stadium visitors are, deep in the back of the stadium behind the goal. It’s a bad angle to see an offside call but I must’ve been in a better position than the linesman because Opara was clearly onside to me. Looking at the screencap confirmed matters but the damage was done. Regardless of multiple players causing Opara to be onside by about five yards, the goal wasn’t going to be given back and Sporting would have to try even harder to get the leading goal and the three points.
