Play it again Sam...

CONCACAF GOLD CUP 2013 1/2 finals:
Panama - Mexico, 2 - 1. Cowboys, Dallas, United States, 2013-07-24

A semifinal game to decide who will play against the US team in the final of the Gold Cup 2013. In 2011 it was Mexico. These two teams played earlier in the group stage and Panama came away with a 2-1 victory. Will they be able to do it again?

Center assignment surprise
CONCACAF decides that Mr. Campbell will officiate the game. One would have to ask, why? OK, Geiger, Marrufo, and Rodriguez still have a "dog in the fight", but what about Aguilar? Campbell officiated a tough match between Honduras and Costa Rica and at least in my opinion he made a bit of a mess of it. It was a semi controlled mayhem.

Not impressed
It is not unusual to disagree with a few minor calls but I have noticed at least 5 calls where we differ in opinion. The good news is that the calls did not impact the outcome. Mexico was out played and most of the fouls were just that, clumsy fouls and not the calculated disruptive fouls. We even had a couple of 10 minute runs without a foul being committed or called. That being said, early in the game a normal foul is either undetected or did not consider it a foul. Several minutes later Montes of Mexico is on the ground again and this time a foul is called. I had a chance to look at it again and to me there is no foul. The 20th minute a clear tactical foul. Quintero is beat and he makes sure that Valenzuela of Mexico will not complete his counterattack. Clear YC, but only called a simple foul. The 34th minute a clear late hit on a Panamanian player and no call is made but it was in Campbell's view. In the 54th minute Flores of Mexico receives a YC. He was fouled and turned around to "say something" to the offender and makes contact with him while the offender is on the ground. But the contact is not initiated by Flores; he is pushed by a player from Panama. The game may have needed a YC. It was early in the 2nd half and the game has already reached 20 fouls maybe he wanted to make sure that the game settles down...and it did. We ended up with a total of 30 fouls evenly split between the two teams.

Does it make sense to have an official control two tough games in 3 days?
Not sure why CONCACAF decided on using Campbell. He already had a game three days ago where he was very busy. His fitness is great, but you could tell that he has lost the edge. Normally he does a great job staying out of passing lanes yet being close to the action. In this game he was still able to cover the field, but found himself "tangled" up with the players on several occasion and was hit by a pass/shot twice. A couple of times I noticed that he really did not want to make a penetrating run, or decided that the AR will be able to have the right position to make a call. Not his fault; he did the best he could do with the assignment.
