The contest with San Jose Earthquakes last Saturday ended in a goalless draw, but the match itself was not without controversy and that sparked some strong words from Rapids Podcast co-host Richard Fleming in his 'View from the Booth' column.
Colorado left-back Chris Klute made his much anticipated return to the Rapids lineup with a solid 90 minute effort over the weekend against San Jose. While he admitted he was tired at times during the match, he also said it was great to be out on the field in action with his teammates again.
Soccer is a physical sport, where bodies collide. I would never like to see that spirited and competitive element lost to the game. But there’s a line, a line which – if you cross – takes you into completely new territory, and that line was most definitely crossed by San Jose on Saturday.
COMMERCE CITY, Colo. – A physical, touchy encounter at a rainy Dick’s Sporting Goods Park on Saturday afternoon resulted in a scoreless draw between the Colorado Rapids and San Jose Earthquakes.
The result kept San Jose winless through their opening five games of the season and pushed Colorado’s unbeaten streak to three games.
A pair of Rapids that started in last week’s 1-0 win at Toronto FC will be unavailable for today’s home match against the San Jose Earthquakes at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park. Left-sided defender Marc Burch and defensive midfielder José Mari both picked up small injuries during the week, and are being held out of Saturday’s match.
COMMERCE CITY, Colo.- Colorado Rapids head coach Pablo Mastroeni has plowed through a different lineup in each of his five games in charge so far, but he might be stabilizing his back line for the time being.

COMMERCE CITY, Colo. – To figure out what’s different with Dillon Powers in 2014, all you have to do is look at his facial hair.
Last year, the Plano, Texas, native showed up to his first MLS training camp with a crew cut, clean-shaven and looking ready for an entry-level job interview. This term, however, the MLS Rookie of the Year came in sporting a mullet and a thick, impossible-to-miss mustache.
