One positive for the Gals...Robbie Findley. The former Oregon State Beaver continues to run tirelessly just like Cobi once did and he got the only goal for LA against FC Dallas this weekend. If the Gals could play more like they did in the lead up to the goal, they wouldn't need Becks or Landy...but they can't. I am going to give Findley the rookie of the week award this week. Not just because he got the goal, but more because I feel sorry for he and his team. They are working hard and all they have to look forward to is Beckham's arrival and the circus their lives will become. On the goal, Robbie didn't do much but put in a rebound, but that is what goal scorers do. They put themselves in the right place to score no matter what the circumstanes. I'm sure Findley would have liked to dribble from midfield while splitting and sprinting past defenders al la Lionel Messi, but that doesn't always happen. Either way, Findley got the goal and the Week 10 ROTW.
