With replacement referees taking charge of the eight matches this weekend, plenty of questions arose beforehand about how they would perform.
In all honesty, the referees did an average job, but they were criticized for some rulings.
The biggest mishap came when Real Salt Lake's Luke Mulholland had a goal wrongly disallowed in the second half of a heated game between the Claret and Cobalt and the Galaxy.
Fortunately, the mistake didn't affect the result, as Joao Plata scored a few minutes later and Rimando saved a penalty that was questionable at best.
Speaking of penalties, five were handed out throughout the league this weekend, a total that the league didn't see until the 22nd game of the 2013 season.
With everyone under a ton of pressure to bring the regular referees back, hopefully the replacements refs don't hang around too long in 2014.
