ALL-TIME BAD BOYS

Love 'em or hate 'em, these guys make the soccer world go round.

Schalke midfielder Jermaine Jones has been suspended for four Bundesliga matches after being sent off in the 3-1 loss to Stuttgart last week.

The American international received a second booking in the 73rd minute of Saturday's match for a tackle on Ibrahima Traore. The German Football Federation said Wednesday that the punishment had to be harsh because Jones is a repeat offender.

Jones holds the club record with five dismissals.

He will miss the last match before the Christmas break, against Freiburg, and the first three games after it against Hannover, Augsburg and Greuther Fuerth.
