Fair Play awards go to Mutiny


© St. Petersburg Times, published October 10, 2000

TAMPA -- The Mutiny didn't win MLS Cup 2000, but at least Tampa Bay players were nice guys.

Major League Soccer announced Monday that Mutiny midfielder Steve Ralston was the individual winner of the Fair Play Award and Tampa Bay was the team winner.

The individual award goes to the player considered to be the league's best sportsman. Ralston totaled only two yellow cards. He beat out Columbus' Brian McBride and Dante Washington.

The team award is for the club with the fewest caution points during the season. The Mutiny amassed 192, bettering San Jose and New England.

Some Mutiny players remain eligible for post-season awards. Forward Mamadou Diallo is a most valuable player finalist, Scott Garlick is a finalist for goalkeeper of the year and Joe Addo is a finalist for defender of the year. Midfielder Carlos Valderrama could be a member of the "Best 11" team.

FINE: The European governing body fined Red Star Belgrade nearly $23,000, holding the Yugoslav club responsible for fans who chanted racist abuse at players and lobbed firecrackers during a game against England's Leicester City.

DRUG TEST: Christoph Daum, who is to replace Rudi Voeller as Germany's national coach, has undergone hair analysis to disprove accusations that he uses drugs.

JOB OPEN: Former France coach Aime Jacquet ruled himself out of the running to replace Kevin Keegan, who quit Saturday as manager of the England team.
