The article cuts off for me - is it really saying the league is considering single elimination playoffs?
I have the subscription (their soccer and especially MLS coverage is really good. Dyer is new Red Bulls writer)
"The tentative plan would see the MLS Cup final played before the November international break."
"“Decision Day” in 2019 being held on October 6th. This would condense the league’s playoff schedule to about a month"
However bad news
"However, the league is also planning to expand the playoff field from six teams per conference to seven"
