Missing Out (post-2008 update)
|What follows is a list of the men who have played the most games in the MLS regular season without playing in an MLS Cup. When I first posted about this in 2006, Mark Chung was the all time leader. Jason Kreis passed him on July 4th, 2006 and and has been the leader since.|
For 2009, Jeff Cunningham is within striking distance of the record.

The only new name on the list is Ricardo Clark, who didn't play in either of Houston's two title games due to suspension. Three players shot up the list in the past year: Beckerman (16-9), Buddle (21-11), and Denton (19-12).
Here are the current MLS players that have missed out despite playing over 100 games. They're next in line:
