OTFATT 2010 - Update #3
OTFATT is short for "On the field, all the time." In these updates throughout the season, I'll be keeping track of which MLS players have played every minute of every game (regular season only). That feat has been accomplished 39 times in 14 seasons by 29 different players. Click here for the complete list.
Nine players have dropped off since the last update, and three more teams have joined the Sounders in being totally eliminated. That includes the Revs, who left the list when Preston Burpo had his horrific injury. The other keeper to leave was Joe Cannon, who was benched in favor of Jon Busch.
Also of note, with the Dallas pair of David Ferreira and Atiba Harris getting subbed out, we're down to the usual group of defensive players. Of the 18 left, 8 are keepers and 10 are field players.
Remaining Candidates (18)
