MLS Suspends and Fines Rapids Forward Clint Mathis

NEW YORK (Oct. 4 2006) – The Major League Soccer Disciplinary Committee today suspended Colorado Rapids midfielder Clint Mathis one game and fined him $750 for violent conduct and failure to leave the field in an orderly fashion in the Rapids' 3-1 loss to the New England Revolution on Saturday Sept. 30.

Mathis was given a red card for violent conduct on New England’s Avery John in the 65th minute of the match. The red card carries an automatic one game suspension and $250 fine.

After further review of the incident the disciplinary committee handed out an additional one-game suspension and fined Mathis $500 for the violent conduct incident as well as an additional $250 for his actions after receiving the red card.

Mathis will serve the automatic one-game red card suspension on Saturday Oct. 7 when Colorado face the New York Red Bulls and will now also miss the Rapids' final regular season game versus the Houston Dynamo on Saturday Oct. 14.
