    For all that Sigi accomplished, he kept screwing around with the team, so that no one found a home anywhere and relationships on the field could not develop. He relied on a few stars to power the Sounders, but few teams win a championship unless they are a strong team. Schmid made that almost impossible. Certainly Lodeiro made an impact that would have benefited any coach, but there is far more to it than that. Dempsey’s loss required everyone on the team to step up, and the loss of Schmid made that possible.
