Agent of FC Dallas' Hartman disgusted with Henry decision

The agent of FC Dallas goalkeeper Kevin Hartman is disgusted with the fine handed to New York Red Bull striker Thierry Henry.

Following a bizarre incident in the match between the two clubs at Robertson Stadium on the weekend, agent Ron Waxman says the MLS disciplinary committee got it horribly wrong.

Henry caused a slight knee injury to Hartman when he kicked the ball while it was at the feet of the keeper late in the first half of the match and Waxman says it was a poor decision to only fine the Frenchman and not suspend him.

"The members of the disciplinary committee should be embarrassed and ashamed," he told the Insider. "It's either no punishment or there must be a suspension. I'm sorry to discover that they've established a double standard for the treatment of their marquee players as opposed to the treatment of their rank and file.

"I hope the committee members can look themselves in the mirror at halftime of that game while Kevin Hartman, who was having a much better year than Henry, sits at home recovering from an injury at the hands of a reckless action, which is going virtually unpunished."
