"I want to apologize for my comments after our game on Saturday night against Kansas City. I was still caught up in the heat of the match. I regret implying that we were looking for payback. I know my
comments don't reflect the feelings of my teammates or the club."
-- A statement by New England midfielder Shalrie Joseph
released by the club. During the Revs' game
against Kansas City, Khano Smith
was red-carded for a foul on Hercules Gomez
, who earlier this month delivered a tackle on Rev Steve Ralston
broke Ralston's right fibula and ended his season. Joseph told the Boston Globe
definitely wanted to give him [Gomez] payback and make him know we didn't appreciate what he did to Ralston."
