Still More Soccer News -- An Update on last weekend's Fisch Fry tirade about the officiating in the United-Galaxy game. On Wednesday, the Washington Post reported that the Galaxy's Ugo Ihemelu has been suspended for two MLS games for his reckless tackle that resulted in a broken leg for United's Dominic Mediate. United's President Kevin Payne sees it the way I do. Said Payne, "I'm at a little bit of a loss to explain how the player didn't receive at least a yellow card." http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2006/08/29/AR2006082901136.html.
Do I dare claim credit for the league's response in this affair? Naaahh -- but, it would be interesting to find out if my wide-ranging efforts to call attention to the incident did influence the league in any way. Anyone at the league offices care to share some inside info?
