"Midfielder to miss two games NEW YORK -- Dallas Burn midfielder Simo Valakari was suspended one game and fined $750 by Major League Soccer on Thursday for a postgame confrontation with a referee. Valakari already was facing a one-game ban for picking up a red card in the 89th minute of Saturday's 3-1 victory over the New England Revolution. After the game, he was involved in a verbal altercation with referee Alex Prus in the tunnel at the Cotton Bowl. Valakari, an MLS rookie from Finland, will miss games at Colorado on Saturday and against D.C. United on June 26." Simo already was facing suspension for the red card, and probably is very close to another suspension for caution points, so he figures why not confront the referee and make things worse? I know emotions can run high in games, but in this case the game was over and Dallas had won. Simo had been sent to the locker room with a couple minutes left in the game, which means this confrontation was probably pre-meditated on Simo's part. There was nothing to gain from this and now the whole team loses out. IMO a rather selfish and unprofessional decision.
