Rapids put five up to Sounders one

Colorado is minting with shiny silver-ish metals while Seattle only plays with a typical soccer penny.

Deshorn Brown, Dillon Powers, Deshorn Brown, Drew Moor and Gabriel Torres took advantage of a Seattle Sounders FC side that only had Eddie Johnson show and play a good game. A couple Seattle players had decent second halves, or stretches of time, but none showed well for the 90 besides EJ. It was just that he got the goal.

There was little other Seattle themed justice. They played with a coin that the Denver based side ignored.

One could talk about other moments - Zach Scott's two yellows, Mauro's missed header, Yedlin's poor defense - but that would be a waste.

Thoroughly and completely out classed.

Statistics will lie about this one. Without defense and finishing Seattle was nearly useless.

The funniest thing about this crushing road loss? Seattle still has more points per match than any other team in the league and still control their own destiny.

So let's ignore this game for just two days and then get ready for Vancouver? mmm, K?
