Last scheduled games are 9/13 with make up games on 9/16.  

 

Any word on next phase? 

Guessing this will come out maybe early next week.

 

How many teams will be based at RBA?

The way MLS has done this has made it incredibly difficult to gauge the importance of any match, which makes it all seem kind of meaningless.  Not a good recipe for fan engagement.

Yeah, like I get it, the world is in shambles, but they should still have a tentative schedule to fill out the rest of the season.

Yeah.  MLS is the only league in the world that has gone with this piece meal, play it by ear plan that basically makes it impossible to know what the resolution of this season will look like.

The league doesn't care about the regular season.  They'll get their Audi MLS Cup Playoffs Presented by Audi, and that's all that matters to them.


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.

If you scan YouTube looking for Bradley Wright-Phillips, youll find numerous goal compilations, a few interviews and, eventually, an excerpt from the grime mixtape series Lord of the Mics.

But who gets ion and how will it be seeded?

10 in the East/8 in the West (18/26) teams making it cheapens the whole thing.

Anything more than half the conference making the playoffs is a joke, especially in a single elimination where the better team might not win. Doesnt reward the best teams over the course of a season.

more than half ... making the playoffs is a joke.


When the NHL had 21 teams, 16 made the playoffs.
24 of 31 made the playoffs this season.

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

Unless, of course we win it

They were also the first to get team sports back in the US. Organizing this outside the bubble is not an easy task, you saw what happened to baseball. Resolution will be play-offs, like it always is with more teams qualifying. Can probably be derailed too, as can football. I would not be blaming the MLS for lack of crystal clarity on this one. We are getting games, MLS is back was a good tourney, I feel they actually deserve some credit here.

Two days from now, TFC will play their final game on the schedule... still no schedule for the rest of the season. Micky Mouse league.
