In light of all the reviewing that MLS and it's disciplinary committee will be doing over the next day or so, one club is going in the direction of appealing for one of it's players's suspension to be overturned. Sporting Kansas City will appeal the red-card suspension for defender Aurelien Collin, who was ejected from Saturday night's game after an altercation with New England Revolution's goalkeeper Matt Reis.
The Kansas City Star is reporting this morning that Sporting is appealing for the red-card suspension to be taken away under the notion of mistaken identity.
The card came after a hard but legal challenge by Collin on Reis. While both players were on the ground, teammates of both flocked to them as they were laying on the ground. As Collin stood up with some help from a teammate Biraham Diop, New England midfielder Benny Feilhaber came in and was pushed Diop.
Collin was then issued the red card. He was already carrying a yellow card from earlier in the game.
