Not a single bit of movement in the rankings this week, despite a couple of fairly surprising results in league play.
Week 16 witnessed losses from two of the members of our top tier, as Real Salt Lake fell to FC Dallas and the Columbus Crew were shocked by the Kansas City Wizards. Dallas moved up within the second tier of our rankings, and could be poised to crack their way into the top with a couple more positive results.
The New England Revolution also look set to make a move if they can continue their streak of victories in Superliga action into MLS play.
And finally, we shouldn't be shocked to see D.C. United fall back down to the bottom of the fourth tier. Two home losses will do that to you.
