    It should be pointed out that:

    *DC (98) and LA (00 though it was played in January of 01) also won the CONCACAF Champions' Cup.

    *Rochester also won A-League titles in 98, 00 and 01.

    *Some DC fans will make some noise about the Interamerican Cup they won in 98 but I've always viewed that more as a glorified exhibition as A) there was no money involved, B) both legs were played in the US and C) it isn't held every year, hadn't been played for a couple of years before DC played in it and, to my knowledge, hasn't played since.

    Don't get me wrong - beating the Brazilians was a great accomplishment but it wasn't like they won a title that is fought for every year.

    The Revs won the Cesar Ragazzi trophy in Italy during pre-season a few years back. Since they don't have any trophies in the case, nor look to add any soon, this is about the best we can do.

    Is this the year of the triple? Chicago in the Finals of the US Open Cup, have a good shot to win the Supporter's Shield. Plus that MLS Cup thing.
     
  6. Metros -> no title (none) & no finals (until USOC this year)

    The only one-off trophies you've won, you've won against New England.

    Con-grat-u-frickin-lations.

    How did Chicago do against NE in the playoffs last year?

    Tampa and Miami won Supporters Shields in years when they didn't win either cup. And now they're gone. Is there a Supporters Shield curse?

    No Curse, LA won the SS in a year they didn't win either cup either, and since they've won a few Cups, another SS and have their own SSS...

    Tampa was awarded the shield "ex post facto", as the shield did not yet exist at that point.

    Rochester sticks out like a sore thumb, but I guess they give A-League teams the "we can do it!"

    Just regular season? Do those numbers include playoffs and/or Open Cup?

    Good question. Its regular season only. I just put this up since its interesting way to compare the teams' long term success in the league vs the hardware they've won.

    The Brookhattan franchise (based, as the name would imply, in New York) won the only American treble in 1945, winning the ASL title, the Lewis Cup (the ASL League Cup) and the Open Cup.
