Bryan Trottier Jersey . - For years William Gay kept quiet.NEW YORK -- Major League Soccer has fined Toronto FC coach Ryan Nelsen an undisclosed amount for criticizing the officiating after Torontos 2-2 draw with Sporting Kansas City on Friday. Nelsen was upset with a straight red card given to defender Steven Caldwell for a high tackle on Sportings Antonio Dovale and with a penalty awarded to Kansas City late in the game. "If they gave Steven a yellow, nobody would have blinked an eyelid, nobody would have worried about it," Nelsen told MLSSoccer.com after the game. "But because (referee Baldomero Toledo) has set a precedent throughout his refereeing career that he always likes to influence games, he decided to give a red for what was really a yellow card." Nelsen also complained about a penalty assessed to Toronto deefender Doneil Henry late in the game, which Kansas City converted to take a 2-1 lead.dddddddddddd "In all honesty, theres not one person who has seen the replay that said that was a penalty," Nelsen said. "So when youre down to 10 men, in the 84th minute, you have to be 100 per cent certain that its a penalty. One hundred per cent certain.
