Philadelphia Union head coach Peter Nowak was suspended an additional game and fined $5,000 by MLS for his role in a scuffle during the Union-Chivas USA match last Saturday.

Nowak left the technical area and walked on the field as a scuffle ensued following a red card challenge from Gabriel Farfan on James Riley. Nowak was ejected from the match and was already set to miss the Union's upcoming match against San Jose, but will now miss a second match due to the suspension (Philadephia's May 5th trip to Seattle).

Chivas USA head coach Robin Fraser was fined $500 for leaving his technical area and Chivas USA was fined $2500 for the behavior of the team's players and staff. Philadelphia was fined $5,000 for the behavior of the team's players and staff.

What do you think of these fines? Surprised the league came down on both teams? Think some players should have been issued suspensions for their actions?
