SEATTLE It wasn't the prettiest day and it wasn't the prettiest match, but a moment of class was all the Seattle Sounders needed to knock off a shorthanded opponent on Saturday.

While the Sounders looked short of their best for much of the match, a set piece goal from Clint Dempsey provided all the scoring necessary to beat the Colorado Rapids 1-0 in front of 38,934 at CenturyLink Field.

EPL Talk at related • 1 view

Many know that while I am a huge soccer fan and a fan of my local Philadelphia Union, I am not a fan of MLS at all. While the quality of play leaves a lot to be desired, my main complaint with the league is the way it (for me) sucks the soul out of the game, with all of its complex rules for signing players, parity mechanisms such as player lotteries and drafts, as well as the fact that many games mean really nothing at all since over half the teams make the play-offs and there is no relegation.
