OTFATT 2010: Final Update
OTFATT is short for "On the field, all the time." In these updates throughout the season, I've kept track of which MLS players have played every minute of every game (regular season only). That feat has now been accomplished 42 times in 15 seasons by 32 different players.
EDIT 11/8: It turns out that Hesmer is considered to have played all 2,700 minutes, it's just that he's listed with only 2,695 on the MLSsoccer.com statistics since they only include minutes played as a goalkeeper. Upon reviewing the game guides (which are a much better source of info - for example, MLSsoccer.com match reports may not be updated to reflect goals/assists that are changed), Hesmer has two listings - one showing all minutes, and one for GK minutes. I thought they wouldn't give him that since he was injured, but they did and that means that he is included on the list below.
What a cruel finish for William Hesmer. With 5 minutes left in a meaningless regular season finale and his team leading 3-0, he got himself injured and had to come out of the match. Even though he wasn't subbed off, MLS doesn't count that 5 minutes in his total, so that means that he ended the season with 2,695 minutes played - 5 short. Oh, and he's out for the playoffs too.
Jimmy Nielsen of Kansas City was also in the running going into the final weekend. He would've made it if his team was still in contention, but he was rested for in favor of Eric Kronberg.
So that left us with only two players this season who played every minute, and they're both field players: Drew Moor & Tim Ream. Congratulations are in order, and their teams certainly will need them on the field for the playoffs as well.
