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.

Readers will remember his Twitter outburst over the linesman in Seattle calling Montero's strike at goal which appeared to many to be cleared off the line, a goal. 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
 
The offending comment:

Ref in seattle just cheated the dynamo. What a joke. Not even close. Ref is a cheat

Followed by:

Look i made a rash comment yesterday. I dont know who the ref was. I didnt understand how someone could all a goal when it wasnt 100% clear
