In Topic: Long, Parker, Adams called in for USMNT

100% agree. But if you have to play either of them for 90 minutes, you do it in the first game. Really inconsiderate from the temp.

No doubt.

The only silver lining to this break is that Miggy & Martínez each went 70-90 at much further locations. So hopefully whatever fatigue issues Aaron has from playing on Tuesday will be matched theirs.

I get why Long went, his place in the Nats isnt as solidified as Adams; the next USMNT may not have been on sidelines, but Im sure he watched both matches, so it was still a chance for Aaron to show what he can do wearing the Stars & Stripes.

Tyler probably could caller in sick and he still would have started the next important match.

The playoff calendar has nothing to do with NFL stadiums.

Both Seahawks and Falcons are at home on Sunday, December 2.  When the MLS playoffs were scheduled, both the Sounders and ATL United were in contention to possibly host playoffs matches on that date.  In an attempt to avoid the poor optics of moving MLS playoff matches for regular season NFL games, they just scheduled them for a totally different day from the start.

What if a MLS team wins CCL in 2019. With the MLS cup being in mid November and the potential CCL winning team being eliminated from the MLS playoffs in October. That leads to just over 2 months of off time to prepare for a club world cup competition. That is rediculously long lay off time and will gurantee an MLS* teams early departure from the tournament. I think MLS is getting closer and closer with the quality of Liga MX and with Chivas being out of the Mexican playoffs this year. I think there is a substantial chance of MLS team winning the CCL in 2019.

Couldn't the teams just come back early to prep for CCL?

Fortunate for me, that is!

More than half of Americans disagree with you.

Meh, that page only breaks out the demographics for football.  Baseball is dying because the kids don't watch or play it as they did in the past.  It's still immensely popular, but as the chart in this link https://www.marketwa...nces-2017-06-30 shows, the avg age of baseball viewers is almost 57, versus the two youngest sports leagues, the NBA at 42 and MLS at 40.  The avg age of a baseball viewer rose 5 years from 2006 to 2016, after holding steady from 2000-2006.  This would suggest that the sport is struggling to attract the younger audience.
