POLL: How do you feel about Thierry Henry’s suspension?

Not sure the highlights package of the Portland-New York game Sunday does the drama justice, but you have to check it out anyways. Amid the chaos, Thierry Henry was issued a red card, meaning he’ll be suspended for Thursday’s nationally televised game here at CenturyLink Field (I’m going to have to get used to that).

Henry smacked Timbers midfielder Adam Moffat over the head a couple times to earn the ejection. I would’ve opted for a yellow card, but there’s nothing that can be done now. I think Red Bulls GM Erik Soler agrees with me, after reading his pointed statement on the referee’s performance and decision.

I want to see how Sounders FC fans feel about it, especially since more of the stadium will be opened.
