VANCOUVER – While the Vancouver Whitecaps didn’t like the decision to send Brazilian Felipe off for a tackle on Toronto FC‘s Marky Delgado in the first leg of the Canadian Championship final, Delgado offered up some post-game evidence in support of referee David Gantar.

The TFC midfielder posted a short video on social media Thursday showing a series of ugly parallel red welts on his lower leg with the words "Didn’t get me too bad right?" with a hands-up emoji.

Felipe was shown a straight red card in first-half stoppage time on a play that Vancouver coach Carl Robinson said maybe deserved a yellow.

"He spoilt the game. It’s not a red card," Robinson said after the match, referencing Gantar. "He’s got that wrong."

"I’m fuming, as you can tell," he added.

Toronto earned a 2-2 tie on a Doneil Henry 96th-minute own goal. Felipe will be suspended for the second leg next Wednesday at BMO Field.
