MLS Regular Season
SANTA CLARA, Calif. – The Colorado Rapids probably wish MLS commissioner Don Garber hadn’t looked so favorably on the appeal of San Jose Earthquakes midfielder Marvin Chavez.
Chavez drilled a knuckling free kick from 30 yards out in the 78th minute to beat Colorado goalkeeper Clint Irwin as the Quakes pulled out a 1-1 tie with the Rapids on Saturday. The Honduran international was only available because Garber upheld an appeal of Chavez’s two-game suspension Wednesday.
MLS fans throughout the country are in for a nice treat this weekend.

NEW YORK — For the first time in league history, Major League Soccer has implemented a rule that permits loans between its clubs, and it's quietly been in place since the beginning of the 2013 season.
The existence of the trade mechanism since the very start of the league in 1996 meant that loans were initially deemed unnecessary within the MLS structure.
