The Daily Dirt: MLS is out of CONCACAF Champions League

It's another year of American futility in the competition.

Russ Isabella-USA TODAY Sports

Another CONCACAF Champions League campaign, another bust for MLS. The league's two remaining hopes bowed out in the tournament quarterfinals Wednesday night, when Seattle Sounders fell at Club America and Real Salt Lake finished with a home draw against Tigres.

After playing well in the first leg at home, Seattle fell apart in Mexico City with a 3-1 loss to America. RSL improved upon its first-leg performance, but the draw wasn't enough to overcome a 2-0 hole against Tigres.
