Coach fined and suspended, twice

After some tirade against the officials a while back in the FC Dallas game, Real Salt Lake coach Jason Kreis was fined $300 and suspended for this weekend's game against Chicago.

Then after a 1-0 loss Saturday, he found out he'd been fined another $3,000 and suspended another game.

Kreis said the crackdown occurred because his verbal abuse to the refs was caught on tape, a public attack that hurts the league's image far more than a private one.

Two punishments, ouch...
