Jairo Arrieta Gets Spanked By The MLS

USA TODAY Sports

MLS Disciplinary Committee Suspends Columbus Forward Jairo Arrieta.

The following came down from Major League Soccer this afternoon...

"NEW YORK (May 17, 2013)The MLS Disciplinary Committee has suspended Columbus Crew forward Jairo Arrieta for two games and fined him an undisclosed amount for violent conduct that endangered the safety of his opponent, Colorado Rapids defender Drew Moor, in the 18th minute of their game on May 11.

Today the MLS Players Union informed the League that Arrieta will appeal the second game of the suspension. Arrieta will serve the first game of his suspension this Saturday when the Crew play at Toronto FC. The result of the appeal of the second game’s suspension will be announced at a later date."

Here's the play in question...


I was at this match, and while what Arrieta did deserved a Yellow Card (maybe even a Red), I do believe that the two game suspension on top of that is rather harsh. What are your thoughts?
