Rapids Summary

In case you haven't heard, the Rapids were schooled in the US Open Cup last night. The game was essentially over before the first half came to a close. They lost 5-0 to a team with a player budget that is less than 1/2 of what the Rapids have. Even with more money to spend on players than the team he was playing, Clavijo failed yet again to get the players to play as a team, string together passes, and have dangerous movement on the field. If Clavijo's only struggles were his player budget, the Rapids should've owned the Sounders last night. They didn't. Seattle tore the Rapids apart and made the Rapids look like amateurs. How much longer before Enos Kroenke wakes up and digs out some loose change from his his couch to fire Clavijo?

FC Rocky has a good look at the game and putting it in perspective.

Most disturbing was the at the end of the game the Rapids players didn't even shake Seattle's hands. I saw it on TV and Goal Seattle mentions it too. They mention that along with Erpen's 2 finger salute. It's bad enough dealing with a crap team "coached" by Fernando. Their lack of class is salt in the wound and then some.
