The Football Forge Power Rankings: Week 28

The soccer craziness continues

We’ve been on a mini-vacay the past few days, so posting has been non-existent, and thus this post will be a quickie. Especially since Week 29 begins tonight. There was some wild stuff going on this past week, not least of which were some of the scores. The wildest was probably the Memphis-Charleston game, in which the Battery were handed five red cards. Only 3 were to players (you can’t have more than 4 onfield reds, as a team has to have a minimum of 7 players). 1 was to head coach Conor Casey and apparently an assistant coach was shown red after the game as well. Crazy. And if that weren’t crazy enough, check who’s this week’s #1.
