MOST COMMENTED

[MLS DISCIPLINE] Chivas USA midfielder Gabriel Farfan and forward Tristan Bowen were each suspended for one additional game for their actions in Sunday's 1-1 against the Colorado Rapids during which they were both sent off.
 
Farfan was sent off with a straight red card in the 33rd minute for his foul on Shane O’Neill near the team benches, and the MLS Disciplinary Committee unanimously determined that his actions endangered the safety of his opponent. Therefore, Farfan will be suspended for two games -- one for having received a red card in Sunday’s game and one imposed by the MLS Disciplinary Committee.

Bowen was ejected in the 63rd minute after being issued a straight red card for spitting. The Committee unanimously determined that he committed an intolerable act of disrespect. Bowen, who initially claimed his gum fell out his mouth, will also be suspended for two games -- one for the red card and the second imposed by the Committee.

They'll both sit out the rest of August as Chivas USA is off this weekend. They will miss the remaining two matches of Chivas USA’ three-game homestand against FC Dallas and the New York Red Bulls. They will be eligible for the Sept. 1 road match against Vancouver.
 
LA Galaxy coach Bruce Arena was fined $2,000 for public criticism of the officials after the Aug. 11 game against FC Dallas.

Arena ripped the officiating after Dallas scored two goals that should have been called back for offside.
