MLS Regular Season
Sunday’s result against the treble-chasing Seattle Sounders confirmed what many of us had feared for some time … that the Colorado Rapids were not going to be a part of the 2014 postseason.
And, for all the disappointment surrounding Sunday’s 4-1 reversal, and – of course – it was the result which cut the Rapids adrift, it wasn’t that one performance which punctured hopes of a push in the playoffs. It wasn’t even the heavy losses at Real Salt Lake or LA Galaxy, though they were difficult to stomach.

On today’s game:
COMMERCE CITY, Colo.- The usual suspects were at the heart of the Seattle Sounders’ 4-1 win at the Colorado Rapids on Sunday afternoon at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park, a win that had massive implications for both sides.
Welcome to Dick’s Sporting Goods Park for today’s match against Clint Dempsey and the Seattle Sounders (kick-off 1 p.m). After going so close to the win last time out against San Jose, we’re more determined than ever to collect all three points this afternoon. It’s our second to last home game of the season and we greatly appreciate you being here.
