Santa Clara, Calif. • Jason Kreis almost made things even more dramatic.
Not only did his Real Salt Lake team lose 3-1 at San Jose on Saturday night in a game marred by the ejections of forward Fabian Espindola and Jamison Olave, but Kreis himself almost made an even louder statement by leaving the bench at Buck Shaw Stadium.
"When the second ejection came," he said, "I'm asking myself questions about whether I even stay on the field or just leave and go to the locker room and show my disrespect that way. Chose not to. The other thing that goes through your mind is maybe just put on three subs and say forget it.
