Some of the changes that are mentioned: 1. All MLS teams play in USOC. Perhaps coming in the round of 32 instead of the round of 16. 2. Making the bidding system transparent. Having the MLS teams all play in USOC would seem to resolve the complaints some have about the extra games the play-in teams have, so that could be a good thing. However, I'm not sure making the bidding system more transparent resolves the other complaint of teams "buying" the cup. Does knowing that the Sounders paid X amount of dollars instead of not knowing how much was paid really diffuse that complaint?
