This is such a silly debate because you dont actually have to choose. Historically the team that has won the shield has had the best odds of winning the cup (nearly 33% of the time they win it). So of course we all want the cup the most and if forced to choose most of us would pick that. But we dont have to. Winning the shield was fucking great and I want it again, but this time en route to the cup (and enabling us to host it at home).
Wasn't Toronto the only Supporter Shield winner in the history of MLS to win the Cup just last year? Until then percent was 0. Where did you get 33% number from?
