I mean, It's bad he said it and all that, but it's idiotic to punish the sounders for the playoffs for it.
I disagree. You can't have this big anti-prejudice campaign, specifically mention homophobia, and not get slapped down with a suspension.
I don't buy into this "heat of competition" stuff. As my dad used to say, "What's down in the well comes up in the bucket." He could've said anything else there and had been fine, but why a gay slur? You don't call somebody that just out of nowhere, I don't think.
Not acceptable. He deserves this punishment.
