MLS-Most starts in a row from inception of franchise

KC Mark Chung 83
COL Steve Trittschuh 47
DC Jeff Agoos 44
SJ Tim Martin 35
DAL Mark Dodd & Richard Farrer 32
CHI Lubos Kubik 31
TB Steve Ralston 29
CHV Ezra Hendrickson 24
CLB Billy Thompson 24
LA Mark Semioli 24
MIA Leo Cullen 21
MET Rhett Harty 17
NE Welton 17
RSL Clint Mathis 13

Takes into account all competitions. Just another cool stat I'm now able to easily figure out thanks to my lineup database (nearly done). It's interesting than only one goalkeeper makes the list, and even then he's tied with a position player. And I think in the future only a goalkeeper could break Mark Chung's record. He started every game for the entire 1996 and 1997 seasons, and the first 10 of 1998. I believe he finally missed a game due to a foot injury.

Yet another stat where the Metro lag the rest of the league (sigh).

That's a shock. What's funny is that the Metros started 2 guys in their very first game who would never play another MLS game: Ken Hesse & Danny Barber.

I don't know anything about those guys, but that's horrible.
