Overwhelmingly Canadian Power Rankings, MLS Week 4/USL Week 1

With this being an international weekend, there was only a limited schedule of games in MLS.

Yet, this week, we’ll announce a change in the way we do things with our power rankings. We will track the minutes played by Canadians in USL. But, to make sure fair is fair, the USL numbers are not tracked on the same list as MLS and NASL. Why? Because, in USL, Canadian are treated as domestics league wide. In MLS and NASL, only Canadians who play on Canadian clubs are treated as domestics; Canadians on American clubs are treated as internationals unless they have dual citizenships or green cards.

Of course, Americans in all three leagues are domestics on all Canadian and U.S. teams.

Because USL doesn’t carry the double standard when it comes to Canadians, it’s impossible to rate it along with NASL and MLS. As well, because of send-downs and call-ups, there will be some players who accrue MLS minutes and also get time playing with the MLS-parent-club affiliated USL teams.

And, the Canadian Soccer Association has mandated guidelines for the three Canadian USL teams when it comes to having our players on their rosters and on the field. That’s another reason why USL needs to be ranked separately.

Here are the rankings:
