MLS suspends Earthquake's Chavez for two matches for elbow

The MLS Disciplinary Committee handed down some more justice on Friday afternoon, suspending San Jose Earthquakes midfielder Marvin Chavez for two matches for elbowing Toronto FC’s Logan Emery in the face during San Jose’s 2-1 win.

The play went unpunished at the time, but a review of the incident showed that Chavez did intentionally strike Emery in the face with the elbow.

Here is the incident:

Chavez joins teammates Steven Lenhart and Alan Gordon as Earthquakes players to receive suspensions recently.

What do you think of the ruling? See a two-match ban being fair? Think the Earthquakes deserve the label of dirty team?
