The MLS Disciplinary Committee have received plenty of flak this season for some of their decisions, but the latest suspension they handed out is sure to raise more than a few eyebrows and questions.

Hours before the Vancouver Whitecaps were set to take on rivals the Seattle Sounders, the MLS Disciplinary Committee banned Vancouver midfielder Barry Robson one game and fined him an undisclosed amount. The suspension has to be served immediately, meaning the Whitecaps Designated Player will miss the Sounders match.

Robson received the punishment for his 'aggravated dissent' against a match official in this past Wednesday's 2-0 loss to FC Dallas.

What do you think of the MLS Disciplinary Committee's decision to suspend Robson hours before kickoff? Does the process need to be looked at further so that this does not happen again, or are you okay with it?
