Is there any in this rout with authority to treat with me? Or indeed with wit to understand me?

Well the three teams we can possibly play totally shit the bed today.

If Philadelphia beats Toronto (totally possible given their decade-long streak of never hosting a playoff game--seriously not once, in 10 years) we play them again.

Otherwise we play the winner of DC and Montreal. We cannot play Toronto.

 

If I had to guess, I would say it'll be DC. Pretty confident they smack an imploding Montreal team.

I wouldn't put money on the Toronto-Philly game, but if I had to guess I'd say Toronto pulls it out.

When are we home and when are we away?

Pulling for Philly for travels sake and I think it's the easiest matchup for us. Plus we beat them twice in a month

When do you think they'll announce the time for the 11/6 home match? I'm pulling for 5:00 PM.

I'm hoping for 3 or 5pm but knowing the league they will keep us hanging until Halloween before they release the game time, and it will be like 730 or something.

Anytime that doesn't mean both the Giants and Red Bull traffic will intersect.

Is it safe to assume they'll be doing the 3:00, 5:00, 7:00 and 9:00 slots with the two early slots going to East or will they mix and match (East get 3:00 and 7:00 while West get 5:00 and 9:00)?

 

ESPN is getting the 3:00 and 5:00 slots while Fox is getting the 5:00 and 7:00 slots. I'm not sure if each network is assigned a conference like they do in the NBA playoffs. 

 

edit: Actually just checked and ESPN is getting the first leg of the ECF final while Fox gets the second leg so I'm sure we'll have to wait for MLS to release a full schedule to get times and networks.

Prefer no 7 pm game. Would prefer 3 probably but 5 works.

I think East and West will each get an early game and a late game. 9/10pm will almost certainly be West and 3 pm almost certainly East.

I feel like this is what happened last season.

That split is definitely one that occurred last year.
