The MLS came down on another Houston Dynamo player today. It wasn’t a kick this time (Ricardo Clark) but an nasty Andy Herron-like elbow from Eddie Robinson thrown at Kansas City defender Tyson Wahl.

Yeah, judging by that it’s an easy call for the league in my book. He was also docked $1000 for the elbow as well.

I think it is good of the league to come down hard on players for stupidity like that. The loss of Robinson (who is considered as one of the dirtiest in the league) is a tough one for the struggling Dynamo at this early in the season.

What do you make the the suspension?

    Deserved and richly – and for precisely the reason you state. While Martek from Nutmegged has got me to back off a little with regard to having the word "dirty" pop into my head every time I see Robinson's name, this sorta stunt begins the subtle process of re-programming.
