RSL's Alexandre suspended one game

When Real Salt Lake forward Jean Alexandre came in for a studs-up challenge on D.C. United defender Jed Zayner in the 49th minute of Saturday's draw at Rio Tinto Stadium no foul was called, and no card was handed out. That hardly means that Alexandre escaped punishment from the league.

Alexandre was suspended one game for the challenge and won't be available for RSL's game at Chicago Wednesday night. Real Salt Lake shouldn't be as shorthanded with Alexandre unavailable, as Will Johnson has already returned from Gold Cup duty, and Alvaro Saborio and Arturo Alvarez both had their teams eliminated from the tournament as well.

What do you think of Alexandre being suspended? Think the challenge was red-card worthy?
