Video: Players struggle to name Beckerman as player who has committed most fouls in MLS history

By Sam Stejskal

You may or may not know that RSL Captain Kyle Beckerman has the record for most fouls committed in MLS history. So it goes when you're a defensive midfielder who's been in the league going on 15 years. 

Turns out, most of Beckerman's MLS colleagues didn't know that KB5 holds that record, either. MLSsoccer.com asked quite a few of them about it, with only four - Seattle Head Coach Sigi Schmid, Kansas City's Matt Besler, D.C.'s Bill Hamid and New England's Andrew Farrell - able to correctly identify Captain Kyle. 

Two of the league's biggest villains were among the more popular guesses, with SKC's Aurelien Collin and San Jose's Steven Lenhart getting their names dropped a few times. 

Our favorite moment from the video? Vancouver Captain Jay DeMerit's "a foul for every dread" comment.
