No appeal for Henry red, Soler fine likely
New Jersey Record, June 22nd, 2011 5:01PM

MOST COMMENTED

There is no process by which New York can appeal the red card issued to Thierry Henry last week in a 3-3 tie at Portland, and so he will sit out Thursday's nationally televised game against Seattle, reports Tim Leonard.

A confrontation between Henry and Timber Adam Moffat -- Henry gave Moffat two pats to the head and Moffat responded with a shove -- prompted referee Ricardo Salazar to produce a red card for Henry and a caution for Moffat.

General manager Erik Soler and Coach Hans Backe both blasted Salazar and the officiating crew for a vast disparity in fouls called during the match, which ended 3-3 when New York's Dwayne De Rosario converted a penalty kick in the final seconds.

“If you look at the game and the stats for free kicks, it was [25-5],” Backe said. “I’ve never been involved in a fair game in 30 years like that. Not even the most violent, rude game ends up [25-5] in free kicks.”
