They're also first team in MLS history to erase two three-goal deficits in a single season.

Through 50 minutes, the Seattle Sounders couldn't do anything right. Facing the worst team in the league at home, they were trailing 3-0 and had only managed to take four shots, none of which were on frame.

Brad Evans doesn't like MLS' convoluted acquisition rules, and isn't too shy to say so, as he took to twitter to state he'd never play for a rival team despite them.

The Seattle Sounders and U.S. Men's National Team defender's twitter was ablaze on Wednesday, as he sparked a storm with his comments lamenting MLS player acquisition rules while stating he would never play for a rival.

A lot of players aren't available for the next two games.

TUKWILA, Wash. — Right back may be the Seattle Sounders version of the Spinal Tap drummer. Brad Evans was supposed to start the season there but injury, and now a red card, took him away quite often. Now, entering an Open Cup match against San Jose Earthquakes and a road game to Colorado Rapids head coach Brian Schmetzer will have to test a sixth, yes sixth, right back just halfway through the season.

The Sheriff holds eight major trophies after winning MLS Cup in 2016.

Brad Evans started 2016 as the captain of the Seattle Sounders. He was their centerback at that point. By the end of the year he was either injured or a bench player. His large option was picked up. The team clearly sees him as a valuable member, but how they will use him is one of the greatest mysteries of 2017.

PORTLAND, Ore. — There isn't a team in the world Clint Dempsey seems to take more joy in scoring against than the Portland Timbers. He did it again on Sunday, and this one may have stung the worst.

Dempsey's 94th minute header -- from a Roman Torres cross, no less — allowed the Seattle Sounders to escape with a point despite playing the entire second half down a man.

This was the third time this week that Evans had trained and the second time he was fully involved

Going into this season, Brad Evans seemed to have the inside track on the starting right back job. After all, Tyrone Mears had been effectively traded to Atlanta United and Evans was highly thought of enough that he had been invited to the United States national team training camp.

There's still been no clear indication where Evans would play if he does start.

When last we saw Brad Evans, he had moved over to right back and turned in a solid 45-minute shift in a losing effort against the Portland Timbers. The common thinking seemed to be that it was a signal of a potentially permanent move, as Roman Torres' return to health was going to push Evans out of center back.

Opinions have been pretty well split over Fredy Montero's signing with the Vancouver Whitecaps.

On one side, there's people — frankly, like myself — who think Montero has a right to return to MLS and be close to his family. Plus, the Whitecaps are not the Portland Timbers, or even the LA Galaxy, in terms of the intensity of the rivalry.

Surprisingly, though many of you predicted a draw, there were no 2-2 predictions, only 3-3 or 1-1.
