Sorry guys, got about a third of the way through a full entry on Wednesday and never found time to finish. Few notes before the rankings: Union D Gabriel Farfan will serve a three game suspension for his challenge on Chivas USA's James Riley during last weeks game, he was given a red card and an additional two games for failing to leave the field and player endangerment. Union coach Peter Nowak will also serve a suspension for two games for being sent off against Chivas for leaving the technical area and failing to the leave the field. Chivas USA coach Robin Fraser was also fined for leaving the technical area but will not serve a suspension. I have to DVR the Red Bulls-Revolution game on NBCSN so don't tell me what happens while I'm at work. These rankings do not reflect the RSL-DAL draw from midweek.
