MLS Power Rankings, Week 5: Dallas reigns supreme

Jim O'Connor-USA TODAY Sports

The other team in Texas takes the top spot.

Your weekly power rankings are back once again, and are back in my grubby hands. The last week's rankings are the rankings that you, the readers, chose. I apparently disapprove of your favorability towards the Whitecaps, as I am pretty harsh towards them. This weekends' games produced primarily draws, so anyone who got a win was rewarded with a solid bounce up the chart.

Who do you have where and why?
