I hope we don't get fucked on away goals this year and the format changes next year.
I do love that they are going to single elimination and getting rid of the stupid away goals rule though.
Season starting in February is going to be interesting. I can see that being really bad for attendance in a lot of places with the cold weather though they could try to have more teams in the south and out west host more during that month. Or maybe have 1pm games so it won't be as bad.
I don't mind the cold at all, just don't see us having good attendance when it's freezing cold out in February for an early regular season game.
Author kind of implied that teams in warmer locales would be expected to host in Feb (Miami, Orlando, Nashville, LAs, Texas teams, etc.).
