Sounders coach Sigi Schmid was asked today about the Friday incident in which Houston Dynamo midfielder Colin Clark directed a gay slur at a ballboy during Seattle's 2-0 win at CenturyLink Field.
"I didn't know of it until late," Schmid said. "In fact, (Houston coach) Dominic Kinnear called me to talk to me an apologize about it, and I didn't even know what had gone on, and that was Saturday morning. ... It's not something that should happen in the game, within the game, on the soccer field. With ballboys there it shouldn't happen. But in terms of what happens now with regard to Clark, if there's anything, that's a league decision. But certainly it's not the kind of behavior that we want to see from any of the players in our league."
