[MLS GOLEADORES] D.C. United's Dwayne De Rosario and San Jose's Chris Wondolowski each scored a league-leading 16th goal in the last week of MLS regular-season play, but De Rosario claimed the Golden Boot on the assist tiebreaker, having set up 12 goals to Wondolowski's three assists. For more on this season's leading scorers and Golden Boot history. ...

* De Rosario has scored 93 regular-season goals (seventh on the all-time list) and has won four MLS titles in his 11-year MLS career, but this season marks his first Golden Boot.

* DeRo in 2011 became the first player to score for three different teams. He scored 13 goals for D.C. United after arriving from New York, where he struck twice after notching one goal for Toronto, with which he started the season. Eight of his assists were for D.C. United, for which he played 18 games.

* San Jose's Chris Wondolowski, who won the Golden Boot last season with 18 goals, scored his 16th from the penalty spot in a 4-2 win over FC Dallas and hit the crossbar later in the game. He's the third player to win the Golden Boot and tie for the goalscoring lead the following season. (Stern John led the league in 1998 with 26 and tied in 1999 with Roy Lassiter and Jason Kreis on 18. Carlos Ruiz led in 2002 with 24 and tied in 2003 with Taylor Twellman on 15).

    Another MLS brainless rule in naming the top goal scorer...what does that extra assist mean in order to crown the goal king?...if they are tied in goal scoring, that's it, why tinker with assists to break the deadlock...too much emphasis on stats is ludicrous.
