It’s a bit hard to believe that Marquez, with his long history of unsportsmanlike behavior, would have the gall to call MLS unprofessional.

For those who don’t know Rafa’s history, let me offer up this trip down memory lane.

Here’s Marquez’s cleats up tackle on Chris Pontius in last year’s MLS Playoffs. Fittingly, this tackle was the last play Marquez ever made in the league. Also fittingly, the New York Red Bulls had a man-advantage at the time and were tied 1-1 with D.C. United on aggregate. Marquez’s stupid foul gave away the Red Bulls man-advantage and D.C. United eventually won the game with an 88th-minute goal courtesy of Nick DeLeon.

The tackle is at the 0:36 mark of the clip below.

Here’s another class act from Marquez, throwing a ball at an L.A. Galaxy player after the final whistle of a 2011 MLS Playoff game. Then, after throwing the ball, Marquez throws a punch at an L.A. Galaxy player (which he doesn’t connect) and then, in the ultimate act of manliness, throws himself to the ground feigning injury to try to avoid getting sent off—he didn’t. The Red Bulls were forced to play the second leg without Marquez and lost.

The temper-tantrum by Marquez is at the 1:19 mark of the clip below.

And who could forget the 2002 World Cup match between the U.S. and Mexico when Marquez was ejected late in the match after head-butting Cobi Jones?

Marquez’s head-butt of Jones is at the 2:12 mark of the clip below.

And finally, another gem from Marquez, again against the United States. In the 65th minute of the U.S.-Mexico World Cup qualifier on February 11, 2009, Marquez launched a kung-fu kick on Tim Howard and gets himself sent off.

Marquez’s kick at Howard is at the 5:05 mark of the clip below.

In the future, Rafa, do yourself a favor and never call anyone unprofessional ever again. You are a disgrace to the game and the ultimate example of poor sportsmanship. You calling anyone else unprofessional is too much irony to stomach.

    while Rafa is one of the worst, least professional ever played MLS. a bad person does not always said bad or inaccurate things. one aspect MLS can be perceived as “unprofessionalism” may be the turf. whereas most MLS clubs play in soccer specific natural grass stadiums, some very important clubs (Sounders, Timbers, White Caps) played on artificial turfs and the new NYCFC still doesn’t have a stadium. US is the richest country in the world by GDP, it is truly unprofessional to play soccer on plastic turf. in this regard, Rafa got it right. having said that, MLS is working hard to improve…
