I was thinking...to prevent the CLB-NE crap from happening again, my father suggested that the higher seed either plays at home two games, or plays at home for one game. I definitely agree with this statement. But you say, "Oh, that's not fair for the lower seed." But it should be unfair. The higher seed deserves to have a much greater advantage than hosting the overtime. They earned it in the regular season. Teams like New England (although they played valiantly in the playoffs) do not deserve ONE single home game throughout the playoffs. Hosting the opening game is crap. The higher seed should host BOTH games. I believe that we shouldn't worry about making sure that all teams host a game for their fans. The highest seeded team deserves such an advantage that they are almost assured a spot in MLS Cup. The fact that DC United is in the championship game shows just how much of a crapshoot the playoffs are.
