Javier Morales became the latest victim of a horrific leg-breaking tackle this weekend, and now Real Salt Lake is left without its creative leader while MLS must assess what to do with Chivas USA striker Marcos Mondaini, the man who delivered the tackle.
Having just suspended Colorado midfielder Brian Mullan for ten games for his bone-snapping tackle on Steve Zakuani, MLS is very unlikely to take it easy on Mondaini. With Morales joining Zakuani, reigning MLS MVP David Ferreira and D.C. designated player Branko Boskovic on the list of attacking players to suffer long-term injuries due to rough tackles, MLS will need to seriously consider whether or not to hand out another lengthy ban.
In case you haven't seen the Mondaini tackle on Morales, here it is.
Our question for you is similar to the one we asked of the Mullan tackle. How long do you think Mondaini should be suspended for? Think the tackle was worse than Mullan's or think the circumstances merit a shorter suspension this time around?

How did you vote? Think Mondaini's tackle was worse than Mullan's or think it was just a clumsy challenge that doesn't merit a double-digit suspension?
