The reason for that was always because the seasons overlapped so there was no alternative (similar to Russian/Scandinavian teams in UEFA). Now with MLS ending in December and CCL proper starting in Feb/March, it would make very little sense to keep doing that.

 I suppose the only motivation would be to avoid a confusing qualification process.    The previous format was a bit ambitious

 

Not much of a league anymore though, they might as well call it the Concacaf Champions Cup again. We will see if this will be the format that finally catches on for them. 


Don't blame me, I voted for Kodos.

We are in Pot 1 with 3 other MLS sides and 4 Liga MX sides. The other pot is Seven Central American/Carribean teams and Toronto. 

 

Somebody is leaving that draw maaaaaaaaad. 

I expected it to go down like this, but has this actually been confirmed?

Bradley and Jozy when they realize they might have to play in front of Costa Rican fans in the second round.


Frankly, since I am merely a fan and a not a fancy American soccer writer, I'm going to congratulate Wright-Phillips on a well hit goal. If I was an American soccer writer, I'd claim that the recently retired Henry was wearing an invisibility cloak and carried the ball into the net for the obviously unskilled Wright-Phillips.
