    In a supplement to their October 2003 issue, they reviewed the top 20 football trips and derby's in the world. We beat out the Munich, Beijing, Stockholm, and Santiago derbies!!! Although, they make no mention of the animosity between the teams, but rather the cultural makeup of the clubs and the glamour of New York. Really, the only rivalry aspect they mention is between the cities themselves. (NYC being our cultural capital, DC being our official capital.)


    On a scale of 1-10, they gave the football a 5, the culture a 9, the nightlife a 6, and the stadium a 6. Problem is that, they have the match in the Meadowlands. :(

    Although we all know that the stadium rating would've been much higher if they played at RFK. :D


    They have a real nice big picture of DC fans in a storm of confetti at MLS Cup 96, no ESC wankers in sight!!!

    Cool!

    As would the football, the culture and the nightlife!

    I will be there for the US Open Cup game and for the regular season game.

    And of course at RFK!

    BRING IT!

    i know you're all gonna throw the finger at me... but is that even the best derby in MLS? even if it beats CHI-DAL or LA-SJ... 16th best derby?!? there's probably 16 better in the EPL alone

    and what's gotten into 442 lately with all of these american leanings? quoth seinfeld: not that there's anything wrong with that

    You obviously don't have a clue about MLS rivalries.


    This is the first true rivalry, and it's the best.

    It's a great rivalry because the MenstrualStars truly suck. Their fans suck, their stadium sucks, their uniforms suck. They suck with great sucking. :)

    Considering that you have no clue about MLS, I would question your knowledge of EPL.

    I am a big supporter of MLS, and I hope the Metro/DC derby can someday be objectively considered the 16th best in the world. But for right now you guys are hallucinating if you believe this.

    Do all Europeans walk with their noses up!?

    It is the quality not the quantity.

    1-the rArified air has nothing to do with my eyesight and my thought process - i hardly think my opinion that this derby has been thrown a media bone by 442 would differ from most of the world's, or even that of most MLS fans...

    2-what does that even mean? who is they? rebuilt? wha?

    Maybe I'll bring some to the next derby. If you are in town I'll give you some.

    Dude, I am not questioning your knowledge and God knows I have killed millions of brain cells...

    I am just defending what we have...

    ya know what? mattbro's right... never mind - the fact that i realize a #16 derby ranking for DCU v M is utterly, utterly ridiculous and you don't proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that i know more about MLS than you do

    quoth austin powers: "i mean, really!"
