Revs Joseph Suspended and Fired for Tackle

New England's Joseph suspended for 1 game

      NEW YORK (AP) – New England midfielder Shalrie Joseph has been
suspended for one game and fined for what Major League Soccer
called a “reckless challenge that endangered the safety of his
opponent.”

      Joseph was penalized Tuesday for his scissors tackle from behind
of Dallas' Ricardo Villar last Thursday.

      He will miss New England's game against D.C. United on Saturday.
