Everybody Dislikes Power Rankings

But those creating the Power Rankings like the LA Galaxy. They looked good last weekend. But one weekend a power rank does not make. Below are mine with the "official" MLS rank in parentheses.

01:Real Salt Lake (2)
02:New York (3)
03:Philadelphia (11)
04:FC Dallas (4)
05:Houston (10)
06:Los Angeles (1)
07:Colorado (5)
08:Columbus (6)
09:Seattle (7)
10:San Jose (13)
11:Chivas USA (8)
12:Portland (9)
13:Chicago (14)
14:Toronto FC (16)
15:New England (12)
16:Vancouver (17)
17:D.C. (15)
18:Sporting KC (18)

Lots of agreement on the bottom six. Crowd theory at work here. If you are fans of those teams? Get vocal. Changes are needed. Normal distribution of data says that lower scoring teams will net a few in the coming weeks. That means Philly, Columbus, Toronto and New England.
