KC coach complains, calls Montero a punk

Kansas City coach Curt Onalfo and goalkeeper Kevin Hartman feel the Wizards were robbed in their 1-0 loss to Sounders FC at Starfire on Wednesday.

The lone goal came on a penalty kick by Sebastien Le Toux that followed a called foul in the box when Hartman dived in a one-on-one situation with Fredy Montero.

In the aftermath, the Wizards claimed there was no foul, and that Montero had been offside, anyway.

In this story in the Kansas City Kansan Onalfo goes further, calling Montero a punk.

Because the game wasn't on TV, I saw the play only one: as it happened. But I didn't see the call as especially controversial ... especially since this referee had been ignorning dives all night.

In any case, "punk" is waaay over the line for any coach.
