"Oh no, not again."

“Curiously enough, the only thing that went through the mind of the bowl of petunias as it fell was Oh no, not again. Many people have speculated that if we knew exactly why the bowl of petunias had thought that we would know a lot more about the nature of the Universe than we do now.”

Gary Rohman-USA TODAY Sports

I thought of a lot of acronyms to go through with this title.

Tears for Chance

Time for Collin

Terrible final clearence

I don't know. You can probably do better.

Didn't we all see that coming though? I think we all saw it coming. Sigh. Ladies and gentlemen, the Sporting Kansas City team that plays down to, and looks past, teams they should beat, especially at home, seems to be back. These last games have been frustrating, and Friday night, with injuries galore, was just icing on the cake. It looked like they might win. They actually played well for most of the match! But defending, in stoppage time, once again, was our undoing.

Sigh. Let's look at some number.

Toronto FC
Joe Bendik 5.0
Justin Morrow 5.0
Mark Bloom 4.6
Bradley Orr 6.9
Steven Caldwell 3.4
Nick Hagglund 5.7
Doneil Henry 4.2
Kyle Bekker 4.2
Collen Warner 5.0
Alvaro Rey 4.2
Jermaine Defoe 6.1
Giberto 4.2
Luke Moore 5.7
Sporting Kansas City
Eric Kronberg 4.2
Seth Sinovic 5.0
Chance Myers 4.6
Kevin Ellis 5.0
Juliao 5.0
Benny Feilhaber 5.7
Paulo Nagamura 4.6
Sal Zizzo 5.4
Jacob Peterson 4.6
Toni 5.0
Alex Martinez 5.0
Jimmy Medranda 4.2
Dom Dwyer 8.4
CJ Sapong 4.2

Dom Dwyer, man of the match. Yay. Feels hollow, man. But hey, the kid is on fire. Let's see him bag a few more. I want to win again.

The worst part about being defending Champions? Expectations. This has been by no means a terrible start to the season, but demanding perfection makes for frustration after what really hasn't been that bad of a spell.

The CB/defenders in general crisis is getting alarm.

Josh Gardner, come back home. All is forgiven.
