Sounders’ Smith suspended

MF Khano Smith, one of Sounders FC’s expansion draft picks, will miss the first regular-season game and has been fined $250, according to the MLS Web site.

Here’s how the site has it:

Khano Smith

New England Revolution

Suspension/Fine: First 2009 Regular Season game, $250

Reason: Disciplinary Committee Decision

It appears the fine stems from a hard tackle and subsequent red card for Smith late last season. You can read about what happened here from goal.com:

Of course, Smith might not serve the suspension as a Sounder should he be traded or not make the final roster. Smith is the second Seattle expansion pick that must open the season suspended, joining Jeff Parke, who has to complete a 10-game suspension imposed by the league.
