3. Another talking point after the game was Pity Martinez's tantrum on the bench after he was subbed off in place of Villalba in the 71st minute. Martinez didn't shake Villalba's hand as one came off and the other on, which is a custom. He appeared to yell at Atlanta United's coaches. He kicked out at a chair. He appeared to slap at another chair. While it wasn't his best moment, it is understandable and not the first time that a player was aggravated to either be subbed, with their performance, or with the tactics of an opponent. Martinez was mostly ineffective against Colorado. He wasn't the only ineffective player. As noted above, two shots on goal through the first 65 minutes.
4. While Martinez was showing his frustration, Colorado manager Anthony Hudson was having his own tantrum in the postgame interview. In what appears at a shot at Colorado's ownership, he said the team doesn't spend enough money and, as such, is outclassed every game. Colorado has one Designated Player: goalkeeper Tim Howard.
