- Adam Jardy@AdamJardyJimenez down. Arrieta motioned like he was stomped on. #crew96
- Jack Hurley@jhbobcatAll over DC right now. Loving it #Crew96
- Evan Ream@EvanReam#DCU is paying Eddie Johnson to finish chances like that. Not good enough from EJ
- Daniel Stroud@danielstroudSee, #DCU, your problem is you keep thinking Eddie Johnson can use his feet for anything. It’s head or nothing with him.
- Astroheader@Astroheader#Crew96 look twice as fit as Seattle looked in the 70th minute.
- MarkWT@MarkWT7Crew look to be the better conditioned team #dcu. Own the MF and are far quicker with counter

- Bob O'Shaughnessy@oshaughnessyWow. Now we are just trolling Eddie Johnson. #Crew96
- Endline D.C.@endlinedcBetter so far in 2nd half but not menacing enough in the area and too many cheap turnovers #dcu

- Daniel Karell@DanielKarellTerrific work rate from Waylon Francis tonight. #Crew96
- Bill Fecher@wubuf#Crew96 arrieta does not look comfortable taking a man on with ball at his feet.
- Ted Compton@TCompton#DCU has better players this time around, but its obvious they haven't melded yet.
- MB@bearintheburghClark is a much better distributor than GBaum. Definite upgrade in that sense. #Crew96

- Astroheader@AstroheaderPretty sure I am literally the only manager in my fantasy league who does not have Higuain as my captain. #Crew96
- Mike Sheils@sheilsonsportsAfter review, the 1st goal appeared onside to me. The PK call was questionable. Only chance for #DCU: better execution (obvs,) calm demeanor
- Adam Jardy@AdamJardyWaylon Francis was down and seemingly in a lot of pain but he pops back up once play stops. #Crew96
- Davin Lassiter@MisterLassiterThe most dangerous lead is 2-0. "So you're saying there's a chance..." #DCU
