Ralston not returning

There is major news for the New England Revolution with the release that Steve Ralston won't be returning to play this season.

This is not totally a surprise, he has had his share of injuries the past two seasons and his body is not getting any younger. It takes longer to recover from each injury. I can understand and appreciate where Steve is coming from.

With the news coming just before camp opens next week, this definitely puts a wrench in the planning the Steve Nicol, Mike Burns and others in the Rev's office were making to field the team this season.

Steve was a quality player with experience and savvy. The team played better with him on the field. Steve will be missed.
