    The MLS record for penalties in a 34-game season is 11.

    Some is luck. Some is also that they are just quicker and more athletic than almost any other team.

    It's expected they would be among the leaders. This pace, however, is absurd, and almost certainly means that every time they get an iffy maybe/maybe-not contact in the box it is getting called. Also, the connection between quality and winning PKs is weaker than I would have thought. Here are the league leaders going back a few years with their points and SS ranking:

    2011 DCU 10 PKs 39 Pts 13/19
    2012 MTL 9 PKs 42 Pts 12/19
    2013 CLB 9 PKS 41 Pts. 16/19
    2014 VAN 11 PKs 50 Pts. 9/19
    2015 RB 11 PKs 60 Pts 1/20 (NB NYCFC was second with 9PKs, 37 Pts, 17/20)
    2016 RSL 9 PKs 46 Pts 10/20
    2017 tie TFC 11 PKS 69 Pts 1/20, POR 11 Pks 53 Pts 7/20

    They complained when no foul was called an a Will Johnson dive. To be fair to them, it was hard to tell it was a dive in real time from the stands, (not that it excuses the throwing of stuff). But everyone, I mean everyone, agrees it was a dive.

    I am starting to genuinely believe that this is all to get Atlanta the CCL to showcase MLS and that we don’t have the capability of hosting the games.

    The fix is in.
