DC United's Luis Silva fined by MLS Disciplinary Committee for simulation vs. Columbus Crew

MLS announced on Thursday the MLS Disciplinary Committee has fined D.C. United midfielder Luis Silva an undisclosed amount for simulation in the 79th minute of the game against the Columbus Crew on March 8.

Silva entered a 50-50 challenge for the ball with Crew defender Michael Parkhurst on the edge of Columbus' box on the play in question, but fell over on what appeared to be little to no contact. He was not issued a yellow card for that play during the match, a 3-0 win for Columbus.
