This week's rankings are about as close as we get to a consensus in these here parts. The three tops teams all had 100% of the vote for the top tier, and the three bottom teams all had 100% of the vote for the fourth tier.
The biggest surprise is the Seattle Sounders falling to the third tier for the first time this season. And I'm not sure why. They have more points than Kansas City on the season, and looked far better against an undefeated team on Saturday than the Wizards have looked since week 1. Seattle's difficult schedule continues this weekend with a brutal match against the Galaxy.
The Earthquakes start the month of May in the second tier after shutting out the Rapids, and could really solidify their stay with a result against the Red Bulls on Saturday night.
