It's been about a week since Krisztian Nemeth departed Kansas City for the Qatari league, and most of the venom that was being spewed at either Nemeth or the team seems to have died down just a little bit at this point. With the gut reactions out of the way I felt it was time to take a look at what Sporting KC is going to do at this point now that the club's second leading scorer last season has left.

Playing two separate lineups that saw the first 30 minutes played by the predominately first team (save Lawrence Olum starting instead of Soni Mustivar and Jordi Quintilla instead of Benny Feilhaber) KC jumped out to a 2-0 lead as Brad Davis and Dom Dwyer traded playing set up man and finisher.

It is always hard to let go of someone so honored and well respected, but the Dynamo's decision to trade six-time All-Star Brad Davis was a good one.

In all sports, it happens occasionally: legends and their clubs publicly part ways in a manner that has an aura of bad blood. Peyton Manning leaving the Indianapolis Colts for the Denver Broncos was one example; another could be Landon Donovan and the US national team.

It's been well-publicized that the 2015 MLS campaign was less than perfect for the Houston Dynamo. A second straight playoff-less season was not what the club was looking for when they hired coach Owen Coyle to replace Dominic Kinnear.

In a largely forgettable game, the Revs beat the Dynamo 2-1.

Why was it so unremarkable? Mainly because it was a generally sloppy game, a game that raises the further question: Why was the level of play so subpar?

On the Revs' side, possibly because coach Jay Heaps made a calculated decision that, with his team already in the playoffs, he could afford to start four second-stringers (Patrick Mullins, Steve Neumann, Scott Caldwell, and Darrius Barnes), while resting starters (Jermaine Jones and Charlie Davies).

No Landon Donovan.

Apparently, 156 games, 57 international goals, twelve World Cup games, five World Cup goals, an unassailable position as the best American player ever, a position of leadership and a whole lot of motivation to ride off into the sunset on a high doesn't get you a place on Jurgen Klinsmann's World Cup roster.
