    Darlington Nagbe gets the goal of the year! The runner up wansn't too shabby either, and should get bonus points for being against the goalie of the year.

    Hassli got screwed. Nagbe had a nice goal, but Hassli's was absolutely ridiculous.

    Agreed. I think I saw this on PTI or Dan Lebatard's new show, I forget which. Whichever it was, they thought the 2nd was better and accused the Timbers fans of ballot stuffing. They were probably right.

    Second one harder and more spontaneous.

    Nagbe should never have had so much time to shoot.

    I think the main issue was Sounders fans because Monteiro's goal (not particularly special in comparison to the other three nominees and efforts by Agudelo and Henry to name two from earlier in the voting) got 23% of the vote. Monteiro never should have been in the top four. I'm sure some of the Sounders fans who knew better than to vote for Freddy voted for Nagbe because Hassli's effort was against them.
