Harmse has been the hardest hit as he received a six game suspension while Bayona will receive only two for his role in the scuffle.
For Harmse it's an unsurprisingly long suspension given the part of Pablo Campos' anatomy that he targeted with his punch and Howard Cornfield noted that Harmse's shot on Campos was unacceptable in a statement.
But for Cornfield the suspension to Bayona was too harsh as he said in the statement, "We believe that Esteban Bayona's penalty was excessive when compared to the other disciplinary measures handed out."
Cornfield refers to the fact that it would appear Campos has not been sanctioned for his role in the incident as he instigated the incident but there was little evidence of what he did even though it's clear something sparked Harmse's behavior.
Despite that fact, the evidence for Bayona was very convincing as the television video clearly showed Bayona connecting with a punch on Campos.
With such convincing evidence of such violent conduct the league really had their hands tied by Bayona with a two week suspension really the minimum they could give and indeed it may have been on the light side.
The suspensions mean that Harmse will be unavailable until the very last match of the season, a frustrating suspension for the team captain while Bayona will miss out until the Scorpions home match against Carolina but given the Minnesota match was his first of the season that will not be quite as noticed.
Despite the suspensions being handed down it seems nothing will come from the incident in the tunnel after the match that left a member of the Minnesota United coaching staff with a bruised face, perhaps due to no coverage of the tunnel from the television cameras.
