LAFC’s Diego Rossi fined by MLS Disciplinary Committee

He draws fouls, but he tried to sell this one a little too much.

MLS: Sporting Kansas City at Los Angeles FC Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

For the second week in a row, the MLS Disciplinary Committee has fined a Los Angeles Football Club player, as this week Diego Rossi was cited for simulation/embellishment, which came in the 43rd minute of their 5-0 rout over the San Jose Earthquakes.

Rossi has an uncanny knack for both drawing a lot of contact and getting red cards and such while also falling down pretty easily a lot. As I noted on Twitter during the game, referees, who admit to discussing players who seem to embellish a lot and often tend to become less and less sympathetic, seem to be doing that right now with Rossi.

In the past, players who continually get popped for simulation/embellishment got suspended. To be honest, I don’t remember the last time that happened and I’m not entirely sure that remains the procedure. Hopefully we won’t have to find out through Diego!
