While I may like my stats, it appears that "TigerNavy" loves the numbers, check out his offering below(edit by rslsoapbox)

I think to make the CONCACAF Champions League (CCL) more relevant, fans need to get behind some rankings (aka coefficients) and have a reason to cheer for their team or other MLS teams in the CCL.  Real Salt Lake is currently 16th in the most updated CCL coefficients.  More after the jump...

I didn't come up with this myself, but I found it at this site (  Using the below formulas, I have the current information updated through the semi-finals of this year's CCL (RSL's win over Columbus included).  These coefficients are an average over a 5 year period - 2006-2011 (similar to UEFA Coefficients).  I wanted to share and get your thoughts...

As an additional note, (16th) RSL will be facing (15th) Saprissa
