This is what the USL site said was the beginning of the end for the Blues:
It started with Daniel Paladini’s free kick in the 30th minute. From 30 yards out, Paladini took the shot as Miami goalkeeper Pat Hannigan was still trying to set the wall. He curled it in at the far post for his sixth goal of the season.Losing a man at the 30th minute on what seems to have been a bad call sucks. Playing with 10 players is bad, but for the whole team to fall apart and concede 5 goals in 15 minutes is just plain nuts! It's not like the team didn't have all it's starting defenders either. Carolina had 20 shots, so basically every other shot they scored. Goalkeeper Hannigan, a solid player all year, made 7 saves but couldn't prevent the spanking. Here is more from the Miami Herald
“I asked the ref for 10 yards, and then he backed them up, and he blew the whistle,” Paladini said. “Kupono [Low] was like, 'Take it, take it, take it!' So it just clicked in my head real quick, and the goalie was setting up the wall, and I just put it in the corner.”
As Paladini took off on his celebration, Miami players were irate, and a handful of them charged toward referee Tony Crush. Within seconds, Crush flashed a red card toward the group of players, and it went to midfielder Edwin Miranda.
More rumors on the sale of USL has been all over the news and I'm impressed by the level of misinformation that is out there. I don't claim to be the most knowledgeable person on the subject but some people need to do some research before posting something. Here are a few examples:

I think the best response to all this tomfoolery is made by the Kartik Report. Whether you love or hate Kartik (cause I know he has a lot of haters) I think he is usually on the money.
