Clint Dempsey Suspended
Major League Soccer announced they have suspended New England Revolution midfielder, and Nacogdoches native Clint Dempsey for two games and fined him $1,000 for violent conduct in the Revolution's 0-0 tie versus the Kansas City Wizards on Wednesday, August 9. The play occurred in the 57th minute when Dempsey and Wizard's defender Jimmy Conrad jumped for a head ball in midfield and Dempsey's elbow struck Conrad in the face. Dempsey's suspension is scheduled to be served over the next two games. The Revolution face the Chicago Fire at home on Sunday and the Columbus Crew at home on Sunday, August 27.
