What They're Saying

"I kind of gave him a head's up, apologizing for the tackle. It was a bad tackle. We went to shake hands. He [Dominic Kinnear] came over towards me to shake hands, so I got thrown out. That's what happens when you shake hands."

-- D.C. United coach Ben Olsen on his ejection during last weekend's game against Houston along with Dynamo coach Dominic Kinnear. Olsen said the ejections came after he gestured an apology to Kinnear for a bad tackle by Julius James and the coaches met to shake hands. (In a written statement, ref Alex Prus they were ejected for "irresponsible behavior for leaving the technical area.") (Washington Post Soccer Insider)
