Rapids 10th Best MLS Champions

I can't say that they're deserving champions (no team that finishes 7th can be, IMO). But they certainly don't belong in the same category as last year's RSL team. In fact, they rank as the third best champions of the past seven years:

That 2008 Columbus Crew team was pretty special. Dominated the final as a true champion.
