There is one play that New England Revolution fans will for sure be talking about after the club’s 2-2 draw on Saturday night.
The ending of the game was interesting with DeJuan Jones being sent off in the 91st minute after taking down Przemyslaw Frankowski just outside of the box. It appeared that the referee had handed out a red card, but he would soon go to VAR.
After VAR his decision to send off Jones had not changed and the Revolution finished the game down a man. The official MLS Video Review account on Twitter would later state that the referee went to VAR to see if the foul was committed inside or outside the box, not to see if the foul was worthy of a red card.
After the game, veteran defender Andrew Farrell was asked if he agreed with the call that the ref made on Saturday night.
He said, “I personally don’t agree with the call. I thought it was in between. So maybe he got fouled, I was there in between. But obviously it’s not my call. I thought they maybe would’ve changed it when they checked the VAR but the referee made his call and I guess we have to stand with it. He makes the decisions.”
The Revs have a chance to appeal the decision, but as it stands right now, Jones will miss the home opener on Saturday, April 24th.
