The Foxborough fracas has been resolved. Jermaine Jones has had a busy few days. On Saturday, he appeared to instigate a fight between himself and the New York Red Bulls. But he blamed RBNY's Felipe Martins for the brouhaha.

What was it all about? JJ and Felipe... If you didn't switch off your TV in despair as soon as the final whistle in New England signaled the end of the New York Red Bulls' unbeaten start to MLS 2015, you may have noticed the players decided to continue the contest beyond the traditional boundary of time allocated for soccer matches. Fisticuffs isn't quite the right word, but there was an extended bout of shoving and shouting after full-time, and MLS has helpfully provided highlights for those who missed it: In a nutshell, Jermaine Jones was in a tizzy, a bunch of Red Bulls and Revs...
