Univision had a double-header on Friday night, and to be brutally honest, watching MLS on the network is a severely trying experience.

Saturday night in Frisco, Texas marked the first meeting between FC Dallas and Seattle Sounders FC since the teams' intense two-legged clash in the 2014 Western Conference Semifinals. The 1-1 aggregate score last November saw Dallas eliminated and Seattle advance via the away goals rule. Last night the teams picked up where they left off, drawing 0-0 in a scrappy match, though the story at kickoff was dominated by the number of key players missing from both sides due to injury or international duty.

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.

Seattle beat the Revs 3-0 quite convincingly Sunday, but I'll lay odds this score was a result of which team had their big guns playing.

The Revs certainly didn't have two of theirs, with both Jermaine Jones and Lee Nguyen sidelined by injuries.

It's safe to say that Sunday's sound defeat at CenturyLink Field wasn't the kind of homecoming that Revolution players and Federal Way, Wash. natives Sean Okoli and Kelyn Rowe had in mind leading up to the contest.

For Rowe, whose last appearance in Seattle as a member of the visiting side came in 2013, the return was a mixed bag for him personally.

The final score may not suggest it, but there was a moment in Sunday's 3-0 loss to the Sounders in which the Revolution uncovered a tantalizing opportunity to make it contest.

Despite going down early following a Clint Dempsey strike from the spot, the locals nearly put the match back in level terms right before half.

Jay Heaps' initial thoughts on the Revolution's 3-0 loss to the Sounders were short and straight to the point about Sunday. And with good reason.

After watching the two-headed beast of Clint Dempsey and Obafemi Martins take control and never let go, there was little doubt on how the match would play out against the reigning Supporters' Shield winners.

After much anticipation the New England Revolution opened their 2015 MLS season with a 3-0 defeat at CenturyLink Field in Seattle on Sunday night.

Playing just over three months after losing in the MLS Cup 2014, New England looked a shadow of the side that lost to LA. Without AJ Soares (departure) and Jermain Jones (injury) the Revs had a softness at the back thatClint Dempsey and Obafemi Martins were more than happy to take advantage of.

You know what the best part of season-opening defeats like the one the Revolution suffered on Sunday in Seattle? They hardly mean a thing in the scope of a 34-game season. And last year's First Kick showing (or lack thereof) is proof positive of that.
