MLS: Disciplinary Committee suspends three players

Upon review of videos from games last weekend, three players have been suspended one game and fined an undisclosed amount by the MLS Disciplinary Committee.

The committee ruled that Houston Dynamo defender David Horst committed violent conduct that endangered the safety of an opponent in a match -- elbowing Montreal Impact midfielder Patrice Bernie. He will serve the suspension Saturday against Toronto FC.

Orlando City SC midfielder Antonio Nocerino was cautioned Sunday in a game against Orlando City. The committee has suspended Nocerino for violent conduct that endangered the safety of an opponent in an incident with Sounders' hat trick hero Clint Dempsey. He will sit out the Lions’ game Sunday against Chicago.

Galaxy midfielder Jeff Larentowicz has been fined and suspended for serious foul play that endangered the safety of French defender Damien Perrinelle against the Red Bulls on Sunday. Larentowicz will sit out a game Saturday against Colorado.

    I don't like the term discipline committee. I like the term arbitration better.

    Hell yes suspend them for a dangerous play that they determined was on purpose. On purpose is the key word. Sometimes things happen by accident.

    You know what I like to see. If an adult player intentionally try's to hurt another player. Let's say he is just gets booked but can stay in the game. I would love to see his coach take him out of the game for doing it on purpose. I have done that your out there to win the game, not to hurt somebody on purpose.
