There's often talks in newsgroups and forums of the various sports teams who didn't won a 1st championship yet and I thought it could be interesting to start a thread about a team from the Boston area who hadn't won the MLS cup since their inception, the New England Revolution. I saw that NYT article written last March who compared the NE Revolution to the Buffalo Bills.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. — Robert K. Kraft’s New England Patriots are a very good football team, having won six Super Bowl championships the past 19 years. They are 33-5 against the A.F.C. East division rival Buffalo Bills during that span.

In a cruel twist of fate, Robert Kraft’s other team that plays at Gillette Stadium, the New England Revolution, might as well be the Buffalo Bills of Major League Soccer. There was a run of dominance — four M.L.S. Cup Finals appearances in six years — without a championship, and a mostly fallow period now going on a decade. The team is below .500 (125-148-89) since 2008, the year after it went to its third straight M.L.S. Cup Finals.
Will the NE Revolution will win a MLS Cup championship?

Btw, the guy who posted that billboard about x-days drought without a championship, I wonder if we should mention to him the NE Revolution even if he doesn't care?

I remember when they used to be really good (by MLS standards), but they've kind of sucked for the last decade. Bruce Arena is a good coach though, so maybe he'll get them turned around.
