The MLS Disciplinary Committee is back and Luis Silva is the first to feel its wrath this season.

MLS announced on Thursday that the Disciplinary Committee unanimously agreed to fine Silva an undisclosed amount for diving in D.C. United’s 3-0 loss to the Columbus Crew this past Saturday. Silva was deemed of simulating in the 79th minute of the match at RFK Stadium despite the match official making no such call.

Here is video of the play:

What do you think of the MLS Disciplinary Committee’s decision? Wishing they would reveal how much these fines are worth? Should Silva have been punished more harshly by being suspended for a game for his blatant dive?
