Mark Geiger. That's a name that we all know too well and we will get to see front and center this weekend when he will be the referee in the upcoming Cascadia Cup clash between the Sounders and Portland Timbers.

After apparently hitting his peak in 2014 and being awarded the honor of officiating several FIFA World Cup games, Geiger's hasn't seemed to be the same as his officiating has been inconsistent to say the least.

Mark Geiger got the calls wrong on both penalties he awarded to the Vancouver Whitecaps on Saturday, according to MLSsoccer.com's Brian Dunseth on "Instant Replay." This is obviously just one person's opinion -- and it will surely come as little solace to Seattle Sounders fans -- but it might at least tell you that you weren't taking crazy pills when you were watching the game this weekend.

Nineteen shots, eight corner kicks and several dangerous free kicks only resulted in one goal for the Sounders, not enough to overcome the effects of referee Mark Geiger's whistle.

Although this one was not as blatantly bad as the first penalty Mark Geiger awarded the Vancouver Whitecaps, it was perhaps more damaging and possibly less forgivable.

Mark Geiger didn't disappoint.

A great half by the Philadelphia Union was marred by a call that went Toronto FC's way at the half, and the sides went in to the locker room at 1-1.

The Union had a good chance early when Alejandro Bedoya hit a great cross from the right over to Chris Pontius, whose header went just wide of the goal.

We finally won! And we're not last in MLS anymore, just in the Western Conference.

Panic over! The Sounders won. We are no longer the lowest team in the table (league wide), we are right on the heels of the Cascadia side with four points and our next opponent (the Orange Texans), meaning we can pole vault to 8th in the West next week (and yes that still sounds kind of bad).

Sounders lose to Whitecaps: Postgame Observations

Sounder at Heart at related • 1 view

It's a tough loss, and so much of it rests on the choices Mark Geiger made Saturday night. Rather than focus on that, these observations focus on what Sigi Schmid and his players control. Seattle Sounders fell, again. But they found a new path to loss, and still have yet to find a run of play goal from a forward.

Mark Geiger points to the spot twice and was badly fooled both times.

Blaming the referee for a loss is a pretty weak excuse. Barring gross incompetence, a good team can often overcome a handful of questionable calls. And while the Seattle Sounders have plenty of areas where they can say "we should have done better" in their 2-1 loss to the Vancouver Whitecaps, Mark Geiger's performance deserves a long look from PRO's review board.
