As if things were not bad enough for the Los Angeles Galaxy, in comes word that two of their players have been suspended.
The MLS Disciplinary Committee has suspended and fined Galaxy midfielders Mike Magee and Michael Stephens undisclosed amounts for their actions in Los Angeles' 2-1 loss to the Houston Dynamo on May 26. Magee was punished for what the league termed 'aggravated dissent against the referee' in the 92nd minute of the match, while Stephens was punished for his challenge on Adam Moffat in the 46th.
The Galaxy duo were not the only ones to receive suspensions. Philadelphia Union forward Lionard Pajoy was also given a one-match ban and an undisclosed fine for his challenge on Toronto FC forward Joao Plata. The incident came in 29th minute of Toronto's 1-0 win over Philadelphia on May 26.
What do you think of these suspensions? Agree with them? Wondering who came up with the term aggravated dissent?
