Twittergate!



if you're an MLS player with a Twitter account, you better watch what you say. The latest "Twittergate" involves US National Team striker Brian Ching of the Houston Dynamo.


This happened while Ching was thousands of miles away in New England with the US National Team. Possibly this might also be the longest distance fining in MLS history.

Brian Ching
Houston Dynamo
Suspension/Fine: $500
Reason: Public Criticism
