Also poor Revs. Clyde Simms is a pretty neat addition, though, if only because he'd have probably never made it to MLS if the national team hadn't had that contract dispute with the USSF in like 2004 or whatever and then he turned into a stalwart for DC for the better part of a decade. Such a cool story.
Yea I don't really see the Quakes comeback either.
I think surprisingly good teams will be Portland and Vancouver. I think all of those Cascaidia teams are gonna pretty ****ing good. Montreal won't be an expansion bottom feeder IMO.
