Why was Roman Torres shown red against DC United? Inside Video Review explains

Why was Roman Torres shown a red card after a handball against D.C. United? The Inter Miami center back might feel hard done by, but another edition of "Inside Video Review" is here to break down that decision and more from Week 2 of the 2020 season.

That call, which swung the pendulum towards D.C. during a 2-1 win at Audi Field, is part of a behind-the-scenes look at why the Professional Referee Organization (PRO) made certain decisions.

Another highlighted play came during Real Salt Lake’s home match against the New York Red Bulls, when a handball denied Douglas Martinez of his first MLS goal. The margin for error there was incredibly tight.

A possible red card in Atlanta United’s home match against FC Cincinnati was also up for debate, as was penalty kick encroachment from Eloy Room in Columbus Crew SC’s visit to the Seattle Sounders.
