"After emotions are down a little bit let analyze Gonzales/ Trujillo incident in my last game. After review my tape red to Gonzales harsh. Even though Gonzales was instigator he did not make a contact above shoulders like I was told by my crew member on the field. Not having the best view of the incident acted on opinion of my crew members. Saying that I am taking full responsibility for this call. In officiating we survive as a team and sink as a team. As a head referee I take the blame even though it wasn't really my decision. Great learning experience. Because referee is showing card,calls pk doesn't always means that he is making a call."

-- MLS referee Alex Prus, apologizing via Twitter (in a series of tweets) for ejecting Seattle's Leo Gonzalez in a stoppage-time altercation with Chivas USA defender Mariano Trujillo in Saturday's game in Seattle that resulted in red cards to both players.
