As much as I enjoy the shield wins, I was there for both, it's not like the schedule is balanced and we didn't run away with either. Both had to be clinched on the final day and then we proceeded to bomb out in the playoffs in absolutely miserable fashion against a horrible Houston team in 2013 and were a complete joke in the conference finals in 2015 that we blew the series like 10 seconds into the first fucking game. Until the format is set for the shield to be the championship MLS Cup is still what it's all about.
This championship fetish in US sports has gotten ridiculous. (especially in this case with the 2 Supporters Shields.)
BWP will retire as one of the best strikers in MLS history with the team record for goals scored.
I'm all for building him a statue after he retires, right next to the one of Thierry 'Henrying.'
Maybe my standards are higher because of the Devils but if you don't win a championship you don't get your jersey in the rafters or a statue outside. Personally I wouldn't want it any other way.
