You make the call: Chris Birchall's tackle on Patrick Nyarko

Another MLS weekend, another talking point centered around a referee's decision.

On Saturday, in the LA Galaxy's 2-1 defeat of the Chicago Fire, LA midfielder Chris Birchall was cautioned for a late and reckless challenge on Chicago's Patrick Nyarko.

But take a look at the tackle again. Do you think it warranted the yellow card caution he received, or do you think the referee should have shown Birchall a red card? Should Birchall have received more than just a red — further punishment, perhaps?

Nyarko himself has his own opinion: “I don’t know why it was a yellow card. I thought he should’ve been sent off."

If you were the ref, what would you have shown: yellow or red? Let us know!
