Colorado Rapids goaltender Tim Howard has been suspended three games by MLS on Friday night. He was also fined after Howard had an incident with a fan.
Howard said foul language directed to the fan during the Rapids game with Sporting Kansas City. As a result, he’ll have to miss the team’s next three games.
Instead of letting the matter go, he continued with the altercation with the fan after the game, as well.
“Tim Howard made an unfortunate and regrettable mistake for which he is being disciplined by MLS,” the Rapids statement said. “While this is out of character for Tim, we do not condone these actions. We accept the League’s decision and look forward to moving past this. The in indents that took place during our match at Sporting Kansas City last weekend, do not represent the Colorado Rapids Soccer Club or Tim’s character and beliefs, on and off the pitch.
“Major League Soccer and all 22 clubs have taken the pledge with the ‘Don’t Cross the Line’ campaign, which is ‘dedicated to supporting the communities where we live and play our games, and to proving an environment in which our staff, clubs, players, partners and supporters are treated with dignity and respect.'”
