Yeah, I just think they're really going to struggle if the UEFA champions league remains their biggest ticket item. Its great and all, but how many people are watching during the middle of work days, when most of the games are?

I would actually like it if they showed more "classic games".
99 ManU v. Bayern Champions final is one I could watch a million times.

I agree. I've seen classic games pop up on there and the game turn out to be like 2 years old. Sure, it was a good game, but dig back in to the history a bit...

Well, the Fire come up short to the Dynamo. They played pretty sluggish most of the first half and only started to look dangerous after Oduro came on in the second half. Too little too late though. Hopefully the Fire can build on this for next season and become playoff regulars again.

Yeah, was not expecting that outcome. I'd say with the way Houston ended their season, Chicago were the favorites for most. Oh well, Sporting is going to take the east either way.

Houston has always been a different playoff team than regular season. If I were KC, I'd be concerned.

LA advances, but the ref let a pk go against Vancouver. A clear taking of an ankle and no call. Tough especially after the call for LA at the other end. A tough situation when the ref isn't consistent. But I think LA has a better shot at beating SJ. So go LA, beat SJ so we can watch good soccer later.

Clear on replay, agreed. Don't think it's fair to assume it was so clear live, because my first thought when I saw it was that it looked pretty dive-ish.

So the gals are like the manu of the MLS If you get too close to a gal player, the ref blows his whistle. Not fair, but it doesn't matter, San Jose will dispose of the gals real quick like
