An independent review panel has rescinded the fine and one-game suspension for a red card issued to Seattle Sounders FC forward Obafemi Martins in the 71st minute of Sunday’s game against Chivas USA. Martins will be eligible for Seattle’s game this Saturday against Vancouver Whitecaps FC.
Love that the MLS reviews actions on the field and overturns wrongful decisions of refs. This is a good practice that I believe is unique to the MLS and not practices in Europe, but I like it. I wonder how the refs feel about it.
