New York Red Bull Rafa Marquez has been handed a three-game suspension by the MLS Disciplinary Committee for his mugging of San Jose's Shea Salinas, who suffered a
broken collarbone in the incident ignored by game officials.
The Disciplinary Committee ruled that "Marquez tackled, fell on and kicked his opponent" and his "actions were viewed as violent conduct that demonstrated blatant disregard for the safety of his opponent."
In another ruling, San Jose Earthquakes midfielder Marvin Chavez was suspended for one game for a "reckless challenge" on left back Roy Miller "that endangered the safety of his opponent." Chavez received a yellow card at the time of the infraction.
