The biggest storyline surrounding Saturday's Revolution-Crew match was, without question, the 2015 debut of Jermaine Jones. But there was something much more compelling taking place at Gillette Stadium while no. 13 was roaming the pitch.

Among the 13,092 in attendance for Saturday's match was none other than former Revolution captain Joey Franchino.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. Jermaine Jones made his 2015 debut for the Revolution, but it wasn't enough for the hosts to get maximum points in Saturday's 0-0 draw to the Columbus Crew at Gillette Stadium.

Jones, who last suited up for the locals during the 2014 MLS Cup final last December, went started and went 45 minutes before he was spelled by Andy Dorman at the half.

Here are the 10 things we learned from MLS gameweek 2:

1. A Little Joy For NYCFC

NYCFC's rollout was rough. It ranged from brutally mismanaged to the deliberately misleadingin the signing of Frank Lampard. The team still doesn't have a stadium plan, the New York Yankees are moaning about their use of Yankee Stadium, and what became painfully obvious over the last year was that MLS saw Manchester City's money, saw the New York City location, and rushed a franchise to debut before it was ready.

The New England and the Columbus Crew drew 0-0 in front of 13,092 fans on a sunny but windy afternoon at Gillette Stadium on Saturday.

With gusts of over 30 miles an hour it was difficult for both sides to string more than a couple of passes together and that contributed to a very scrappy game that was devoid of any real goal scoring chances.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – While the stakes are certainly higher than they were during the Conference Semifinal, don't expect the Revolution to alter their approach to Saturday's deciding leg of the Conference Final at Gillette Stadium.
