Both the Chicago Fire and Columbus Crew come into 2017 looking to turn a page and forget about their respective dismal 2016 campaigns. They squared off on Saturday at MAPFRE Stadium in the season opener on a chilly afternoon and battled to a 1:1 draw. Based on the soccer on display it's unlikely that either side learned much about whether 2017 will bring more joy than 2016 did, but both teams have a lot of work ahead if they want to be competitive.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. In the mind of Red Bulls coach Jesse Marsch, there's an unwritten code that all soccer players are supposed to follow. And part of that code is to kick the ball out of play when an opposing player is down due to injury.

So when he saw center back Kemar Lawrence was on the ground after feeling a pop in his knee, Marsch expected the Revolution, who were in possession, to hit the pause button on their advance.

The whirlwind weekend, one which started with getting married and ended with his first training session in California with the USMNT, is something McCarty is still adjusting to.
