Straight from the mouth of one of El Matador's leaders, they were banned for six games just for setting off one smoke bomb during the CONCACAF CL game against Toronto. Shortly afterwards they were pressed upon by security and police, stating they were trying to 'incite a riot'.
Now, I don't know how some see this situation but I personally feel this a severe failure by the FCD FO. While I know 'incendiary' devices are banned, I feel banning an entire group six game, just before playoffs start, is probably one of the dumbest things that can be done. Especially considering it was just a harmless smoke bomb, I mean just look at a Chicago game and their wall of flares, or when DC United scored against Chicago and multiple went off without and incedent.
Well, that's just my two cents. Think it's a damn fool of a ruling.
