09:19 AM ET 07.03 | Jeff Cunningham's time on the field has been steadily shrinking, to the point that last week it disappeared. After leaving the previous four games by the 70th minute, the winner of the 2009 Golden Boot as MLS' top goal scorer did not stir from the bench. FC Dallas coach Schellas Hyndman's patience began to wear thin on May 15, when Cunningham was removed in the 63rd minute at Philadelphia. Two weeks later, the 33-year-old was moved from striker to right midfield against Chicago, a move Hyndman said was intended at least in part to be a motivational tool.

Dang. Could I really care less? I highly doubt so! Man I wish Cunningham had worked out for us, but it seems he can't even get time in MLS any more. Aren't the only goals that he's been scoring this season been PKs?
