"The last thing I want is for this to happen to someone else or to keep going on in the league. But it's not my place to judge what should happen to Marquez. I honestly don’t really care too much what happens to him. I forgive him for what happened."
-- San Jose midfielder Shea Salinas upon being asked how Red Bull Rafael Marquez should be punished for breaking Salinas' collar bone. (MLSsoccer.com)
"I didn’t realize he had kicked me until I saw the replay. When I landed hard, I had a shock of pain, and then my ears were ringing. And then Bruce (Morgan, the Quakes' athletic trainer) was out there. That's all that I know that happened. ... It was just kind of a weird thing to do. I don't know Marquez personally. I don't know what's in his heart or what goes on in his head. The play itself was not very nice."
-- Salinas, who also took a kick to the head by Marquez on the play. (MLSsoccer.com)
