Here are the ten things we learned from week 22 of the MLS season.

1. Trouble In Seattle

The Sounders were demolished 3-0 by the Vancouver Whitecaps at home on Saturday night. The loss, Seattle's seventh in their last eight games, hurt for a number of reasons. It happened with Brad Evans, Stefan Frei, and Clint Dempsey all back in the lineup, pushed the team's scoreless streak towards 400 minutes, and came against the one team in MLS that Seattle has always historically dominated.

The USMNT striker has been suspended for the Sounders' next three games.

Major League Soccer has suspended Clint Dempsey for three games in response to his actions during the Seattle Sounders' U.S. Open Cup match against the Portland Timbers.

After referee Daniel Radford sent off Micheal Azira in extra time, reducing the Sounders to eight men, Dempsey grabbed the official's notebook and threw it to the ground.

Clint Dempsey should get 3-month ban after ripping up ref’s notebook

So Tuesday night in their US Open Cup match against Portland, the Seattle Sounders were probably hard-done by a series of bad calls by a relatively inexperienced official. And certainly this tournament means a lotto the Sounders. Add the burn of losing to their Cascadian rival, and it was a pepper pot ready to boil over.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – A Clint Dempsey goal was the difference on Friday night as the USA clinched first place in Group A with a 1-0 win over Haiti in their second match of the 2015 CONCACAF Gold Cup. The heavily-favored Americans were given a fight, as Haiti found ways to create chances, while keeping the US to one goal.

Holiday calls it a day, the US men struggled but got themselves 3 points in the Gold Cup, plus a few other odds and ends.

There isn't much going on with D.C. United right now, which is reasonable considering that they've played 7 full seasons in the past 2 weeks. Let's look around at some other stuff:

3 things we learned from the USMNT's 2-1 Gold Cup win over Honduras | SB Nation
That was a pretty frustrating Gold Cup opener from the United States last night, but they gutted out a 2-1 win because Clint Dempsey has that rare combination of being a flair player who doesn't really stick to a position while also being a scrapper who has scored so many important goals for the US by punching in rebounds or fighting off his man to get the last touch.

It was far from the prettiest of performances from the U.S. Men's National Team to open the 2015 CONCACAF Gold Cup, but the end result was three points as the U.S. beat Honduras 2-1 at Toyota Stadium in Frisco, Texas.

The Fire desperately needed a win. Not only because of where they stand in the table but Chicago had never beaten the Seattle Sounders (0-6-3) since they entered the league as an expansion team in 2009. Playing at home against a Seattle side missing Obafemi Martins, Clint Dempsey, and Marco Pappa seemed as good a time as any even though the Fire were without David Accam, Shaun Maloney, Joevin Jones, and Jeff Larentowicz.
