For anyone marginally interested in the Revs: Their 2-2 tie in the season finale against Toronto (where the Revs' 85th minute saw them have an awesome bicycle kick goal called off for offsides then promptly give up the tying goal less than a minute later) gave the Revs a final of 28 points on the season. Of course, this tied them with Vancouver for worst in the MLS. However, since the Revs took the season series 1-0-1, their tie basically knocked themselves out of the 1st pick in the draft and top claim priority on international player waivers. A loss would have secured both of those things.
Oh well. Clean house and start again next year. Hope springs eternal.
Well, the best they could have done is 2nd overall pick -- don't forget that Montreal is coming into the league next season and will be tops for that.
I hope the Revs actually do clean house. They need to dump at least half their roster and they need to get rid of Steve Nicol and purge the front office. The Kraft family shows very, very little ambition or interest in the Revs so I'm not holding my breath. It's a poorly run franchise from top to bottom and the problem starts with an owner who doesn't hold his employees accountable for their failures.
It's a sad situation. The Revs franchise has slipped from being one of the strongest in the league in the 90s to a place where apathy reigns supreme.
