Agreed that it's definitely better than last year at least. I'm not gonna go look at all the NFL schedules but I get having the game on a Thursday if Atlanta/Seattle / New England are hosting if there's an NFL game that weekend but if we are hosting there is no good excuse as to why we couldn't play it on a Saturday.
I would like 1 game eliminations the entire way, shorterns the playoffs and gives the higher seeds a real advantage.
single game elimination like the NFL (and world cup knockout round) would be awesome.
A club shall receive 100 percent of the corresponding transfer or loan fee revenue (including agent fees and other expenses) from any transaction involving a Homegrown Player(regardless of service years).
" The club may assign up to US$750,000 of the transfer/loan revenue as General Allocation Money. (In the case of Designated Players, such assignment of Allocation Money can only take place after the club has received 100% of their out-of-pocket investment)
The remaining balance of the club's share (if any), and which cannot be traded, will be available to be used by clubs in the following ways:
Against the expenses incurred by the club in relation to the costs of an existing or new Designated Player; or
With League approval, against an expense that (i) would not otherwise have been incurred by the club; and (ii) reasonably represents an investment in the League or club (e.g., youth development and training facilities)
so if we "sell" Tyler for $5M, RBNY would have an add'l $750K of funny money towards the cap next year, plus $4.25M to use towards another DP. I don't think Red Bull parent can just pocket the money and say "gee thanks". I think MLS would hold that money but allow it to be spent in one of the ways listed above.
keep in mind that even though it's an 8pm kickoff tmw, the projected temperature at 8pm tonight is still 90 degrees. figure gametime kickoff tmw will be between 85-90...tired legs + heat = 2nd to every 50-50 ball. I'd rather over rotate this game than under rotate.
A loss tonight will (for all intents and purposes) eliminate us from CCL based on the combined 2017+2018 point totals (it would be a 2 team race at that point - NYC/ATL). If we win, we'll stay right in the thick of things.
