Kreis suspended one game for criticizing officials

May 8, 2008

NEW YORK -- Real Salt Lake coach Jason Kreis was suspended one game and fined $1,000 by the MLS on Thursday for criticizing the league's officiating.

After Real Salt Lake's 2-2 tie at home against Los Angeles last Saturday, Kreis criticized MLS officials and his comments later appeared in a published report.

Kreis will miss his team's game against FC Dallas on Saturday. He will be allowed in the team's locker room before the game, during halftime and after the game, but is not permitted to go on the field or sit in the press box.

During the game, he will be limited to a private suite or a team-provided reserved section.
