MLS week 11 power rankings: Seattle Sounders still ranked 1st despite loss against RSL

Published: Tuesday, May 15 2012 12:16 p.m. MDT

In a quality-packed Major League Soccer Western Conference, a slight gap in the standings opened up after last weekend's results. Between Seattle in third and Vancouver in fourth lies a five-point chasm (albeit the gap could be closed quickly, depending on the result of those teams' matchup this weekend). In the East, it's anybody's game right now. Minus Toronto, everybody's taken points off some big teams, and New York overtook Kansas City at the top of the standings, although Sporting has a game in hand.

Had it not been for some blatantly poor officiating against SJ and KC, RSL would be even further ahead. I love the way this team plays soccer. WIn or lose, its great soccer.

How can Seattle still be considered the top team when they lost at home to Real Salt Lake?


Not sure where you guys are getting these power rankings when even on MLSsoccer.com they have RSL ranked #1....
