Clarification on Keller ejection

Kasey Keller was given a red card and automatically ejected from the game for touching the ball with his hands outside the penalty area on an OBVIOUS GOAL-SCORING OPPORTUNITY. Since that was the case, the official had to eject him.

This means Keller will also miss the Chivas USA game next week, so Seattle could be looking at two emergency goalkeepers for that match, Ben Dragavon, who is in now, and another GK from the MLS pool of available keepers that can be signed on basis of hardship.

Dragavon is NOT under contract to Seattle and only trains with it because the Monroe native uses this area as his home base.
