4. MLS has fined David Beckham. Details here from the league:
Major League Soccer Commissioner Don Garber today fined Los Angeles Galaxy midfielder David Beckham $1,000 for his interaction with a fan at halftime of his team’s 2-2 draw against AC Milan in an exhibition match on July 19.
“We support our players interacting with fans, whether it is at clinics, charity events or by high-fiving their supporters in the stands while celebrating a goal,” Garber said. “However, our players should never engage in conduct that can be interpreted as encouraging fans to come out of the stands and onto the field, regardless of the reason.”
