Chivas USA has released defenders Ryan Suarez and Alfonso Loera, who have appeared in 15 and nine games, respectively.
Suarez, after being subbed in the 28th minute of last Saturday's 3-0 loss to Kansas City, engaged in a screaming match with Coach Hans Westerhof in a scene caught by television cameras. The two were separated by other players and coaches.
''It was a terrible mistake,'' Chivas USA president Antonio Cue told the Daily Breeze. ''There's a code of conduct for the team. He violated that. And that's why he's on waivers.''
