Relive the best moments from the past week in MLS, including Seattle's victory over Portland, Diego Fagundez's winner for New England and Bradley Wright-Phillips' volley for the New York Red Bulls.

It's "rivalry week" in MLS again, which once again raises the question of what exactly a rivalry is in this league.

Geography plays a part in creating rivalries, though not usually to the intimate degree that it does in most of Europe. But just as commonly, and maybe problematically, rivalries in MLS are built by the league.

Longtime MLS fans tend to be very suspicious of rivalries that don't feel organic. Many of them, who follow clubs that have been in the league since it began in 1996, have spent...
