His decisions ruin the play on the field every game. Don Garber is blind to the fact it lowers the watch ability of MLS

I am first and foremost a fan of the game itself and enjoy the beautiful game, in general, before any team. Any referee incapable of keeping the game true and just should be prohibited from any position of power or control of its outcome. Salazar is the most blatant representation of refereeing bias and judgment with alterior motive in the MLS and should not be permitted to continue officiating in any professional league...period.

Salazar needs to be looked into and retrained

Salazar is damn near spoiling games with his belief that it's all about him. His use of the direct red is arbitrary, punishing, and cheapens what should be a very serious penalty.

Ricardo Salazar determines the outcomes of games rather than upholding the rules. He has yet to referee a completely unbiased game.

Because the integrity of the Game as a whole is being brought into question and not only is the team or teams he officiates being dealt a bad hand the MLS as an organisation is being belittled no one man is bigger than the game

Referees like this should not be allowed anywhere. Especially not in an important playoff match. Salazar's body language during the Huston-NY game such as petting Huston players on the back after handing out cards to NY players is disgusting!

He did a terrible job in the Red Bulls Dynamo playoff game. "Thankfully," when he missed a penalty in the box against the Red Bulls, it sort of made up for the discrepancy in cards, but when the best silver lining you have is he called a catastrophically bad game against BOTH teams, you need a better ref.
