9 teams from each conference qualify for playoffs


9 of 13? Why not 8, an even number?
Might as well make it 12, with 4 byes!

We are good enough to beat the best teams, and bad enough to lose to the worst teams.

According to The Athletic's Jeff Rueter and Sam Stejskal, the league is developing a plan to resume its regular season on August 22. Teams would play six games until September 13 before beginning another phase in the plan on September 16. The second slate of games would run from September 16-November 8.

The Canadian teams are reportedly only set to play in Canada during the league's first stage. According to The Athletic, it isn't yet determined if the Canadian teams would be cleared to travel to the United States by the start of the league's second phase. Other teams are expected to compete in their home markets, though clubs like New York FC, who play in Yankee Stadium, may need to explore other options.

They plan to go from 18 teams in the playoffs to the final in 3 weeks?

Is it 18 games from this point on, or 18 minus the 5 already played?

Armas will get us in as a 6 seed and the season will be considered a success.

"Nashville SC and FC Dallas [...] would play each other in an additional three games to make up for their lack of participation in the group stage.
[...]
Apart from the initial games between the Canadian teams and the three games between Nashville and Dallas, the remainder of the schedule is expected to include only intra-conference matchups. Sources said travel will be made as minimal as possible.
[...]
It's also currently unclear where New York City FC will host their matches, with the club's usual home of Yankee Stadium likely unavailable due to the compressed MLB schedule. "

I really dont give a fuck.

We are hot garbage and corporate isnt going to do anything. Even if we COULD go to the stadium right now I have no desire to do so.

Id probably just go to Bellos on game day and fucking STAY there.
