Independent Review Panel Denies Earthquakes Appeal for Sherrod Red Card

Did referee make a serious and obvious error sending-off Mark Sherrrod?

NEW YORK (Friday, June 12, 2015- This week, the San Jose Earthquakes filed an appeal for the red card issued to forward Mark Sherrod in the 53rd minute of the June 7

match against FC Dallas.

An independent review panel consisting of one representative from the U.S. Soccer Federation, one representative from the Canadian Soccer Association and one representative of the Professional Referees Organization (PRO), were not unanimous that the referee had made a serious and obvious error in the send-off.

As a result, Sherrod will serve his one-match suspension and will miss San Jose's next MLS match against Seattle Sounders FC on
June 20 at CenturyLink Field (4 p.m. ET, MLS LIVE).

Per league policy, the San Jose Earthquakes will have one more unsuccessful appeal for any send-off review during the 2015 season.
