Pittsburgh Riverhounds Player Suspended For Kicking The Shit Out Of Opponent [UPDATE]

The Pittsburgh Riverhounds are likely to lose their leading scorer for a long time, as Romeo Parkes earned an incredible red card by kicking the shit out of Red Bulls II player Karl Ouimette late in last night’s USL match.

Parkes actually scored the game’s first goal, only to watch his side concede three to the MLS reserve team. Parkes tried to apologize on Twitter for sending Ouimette to the hospital on a stretcher:


No shit!


Here’s the full video of the incident.

Update (4:17 p.m.): The Riverhounds have terminated Parkes’s contract.
