Better than last year but the second conference final game being on a Thursday is no way to reward a team for finishing higher if they can't have the decisive game for participation in the mls cup in front of a packed house on a weekend. Why couldn't they have that game on Saturday or Sunday instead of Thursday?
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.
