Not to mention that we owned Houston all year long. Are you telling me that you have never been confident about your teams chances before a match?



The only thing your team has ever won is a single MLS Cup and did so on a luck own goal. Get more trophies in the case before talking trash especially when the team I support has triple the hardware that yours does.
Grade school ? Is that the best you can come up with ? Come on man you can do better. Confident yes, almost bought tickets to go see them in a competition they may not hit ... definitely not

Tripple the hardware ? So you won a bunch of MLS Cups ? Thats the only thing that counts for me in US Soccer. There is no other competition.

So, you wouldnt celebrate a Supporter's Shield, a US Open Cup, or Champions League title by the Rapids. Bull****.

Supporters shield and Open Cup dont mean that much to me. Champions League yes, likelyhood of us winning that in the next 10 years is slim. Bull ? I think not, but you are a Kansas fan and everybody is jealous of you and your stadium.

Nah, it will not be a nail biting ending. We will beat Brian Ching and the rest of the Dynamos crew with or without Brad Davis 2-0.

I agree, we are a long, long way from being in their level. They make us look like kids playing against men.

I can understand USOC because even some teams do not take it seriously but I think that will change in the coming years as they revamp the tournament and MLS teams get deeper.

However, how can you not take the award giving to the best team over a 30 plus game season seriously? That award is far more representative of who the best team is during a season than the MLS Cup. Recent years have shown us that if anything, the MLS Cup is about getting hot at the right time rather than being the best team.

Colorado wasnt anything close to the best team last season and they were able to take it home by being hot at the right time and having some luck come their way.

Are you talking about Colorado or the MLS in general? We had a team in the final last year and we are getting more competitive with Mexico every season.

I dont think anyone is jealous of Memorial Stadium. It isnt very nice compared to a lot of the college football stadiums.

We werent close to the best but we did good cause Smith could get the best out of a depleted team.

Yeh Colorado I meant, Bravo is doing all he can to make sure we dont do good in any competition.
