Bad news: Pretty idiotic reasons. http://sports.yahoo.com/mls/news/ap/20020815/ap-mls-official.html If I read the article correctly, Kenny was suspended for issuing a Yellow to DC United defender Richie Williams for dissent. That can't be it. Did anyone see the DC-KC game Saturday? The article also mentions that Kenny received a "demerit" for his officiating at the Colorado - Fire game July 4. The article makes positvely no mention of any action that will be taken to improve Mr. Kenny's less-than-stellar officiating. Quite the opposite; Joel Machnik, MLS Toady, is quoted as saying,"Noel has been one of our best officials over the course of the past six seasons, and we anticipate him returning to the MLS referee pool in 2003." Why not mandate that the man pay his own way to Italy and follow Pierluigi Collina around for a month? Remedial officials training in the PDL? Anything? Okay, he's suspended but so what? The guy goes back to his day job for a few months and then comes back next season with the same tired sh**. This is supposed to increase fan confidence in the miserable quality of officiating in the league? Bah!
