    Default Latest Blog by Knight: Upsets abound

    As Toronto FC hopes to avoid another upset in the Canadian Championship cup tonight in Vancouver, their MLS counterparts continue to tumble south of the border in the U.S. Open Cup.

    The Kansas City Wizards were squeezed out of yesterday's quarterfinal round on penalties, following a 0-0 draw with the USL-1 Seattle Sounders. FC Dallas also crashed, getting pounded 3-1 at home by perennial pesky second divisioners Charleston Battery.

This collection of players is capable of delivering on the promises made during the close season. There are no more excuses available for TFC. Only success will continue the process of atoning for the past and establishing a higher standard for the future." FOX Sports

    As always, quality writing.

    Charleston has a good side. That attacking midfielder...(forget the name now) was MLS quality IMO.

    There are a lot of MLS quality players in USL-1. As someone on BS put it, because of MLS's salary cap and structure MLS is full of the 1st tier and 3rd tier MLS quality players. The 2nd tier players play in USL-1 where they can make a living wage and improve themselves by actually getting playing time.
