    I thought someone said ESPN+ usually used the visiting team’s feed. ????

    Looks like the CP president is in the field seats in front of 104/5.

    How does Zardes feel about Martínez stealing his hairstyle?
    Zardes does his hair that way so his grandparents can spot him more easily.

    Zardes wins the match and the stoppage time game of keep-away.

    As I have a few minutes to think about it, it kind of p!sses me off that Erickson is tweeting about the low attendance. I mean, why? You wrote a friggin article about it that was on the front page, which doesn’t make our plight look good for the casual reader. Then you tweet about it. Trying to justify your story?
    If I had a Twitter account, I’d let him have it!

    Three points for the good guys. Let's be honest here, Philly is a poor team. I really have no idea what they are trying to do.

    They play like an average college team. When people claim MLS is almost EPL level, I assume they have never watched Philly.

    On that note, I'm watching the end of TFC-SEA. Plenty of Santos level diving in this one.

    The Crew survived Mensah ..he could get a yellow card standing still and it would totally be his fault. I keep thinking he will turn the corner and well he just tackles the Keeper for no reason.

    Attendance is news. Erickson is a reporter.

    Once again, Erickson tweeting attendance numbers and reporting on attendance numbers is innocuous. That's his job. Erickson holding out on reporting the move until he got the all clear from Precourt, that's bad. You can't expect him to not report basic news.

    Erickson will probably do another article on it or discuss it on a podcast.

    Guys, the reporter tweets attendance numbers for every match. Goff tweets attendance numbers for DC United matches. It's a statistic that is worth noting and sits in the box score. It's a statistic that certainly matters right now when PSV is using those numbers that he's intentionally torpedoed as fuel to move.

    Fire vs Impact in Chicago - 10,067 reported attendance is news too. If I’m MLS, this is bigger news. But I’m not. I’m just some guy that wanted expansion in St Louis over Seattle. Shows you what I know.

    I’ll take four points in five days. And that point we picked up in Seattle looks a lot better now after what they did in Toronto tonight.

    I can't believe how open Philadelphia leave themselves right through the middle, and with veteran pros like Bedoya and Medunjanin (albeit older), too. Just no resistance at all, those two were so useless tonight and the Union had the same issue last year as well. Curtin may struggle with a cheap owner but he is a big (literally) dummy for not throwing Derrick Jones in there.

    The old rule...when I used to know more about such things. Nowadays, I don't pay as much attention as I used to.

    This is a general idea as I remember it:

    Home team's feed UNLESS the away team was more major (Fox Sports Net, MSG, Comcast now NBC, etc) or had a pregame or postgame show.

    If only one team had a pregame or postgame show, go with that one by default.
    If only team team had a major broadcaster, go with that one by default.

    If both above are equal, home team.

    For example:
    New England at Colorado. New England would be on CSN-NE and Colorado would be on Altitude. They'd generally go with CSN-NE unless Colorado had a pregame or postgame show and New England did not.

    Chicago at Columbus. Chicago on CSN Chicago. Columbus on ONN. Actually, most every game involving Columbus was the other team's feed because ONN.

    San Jose at LA Galaxy. San Jose on CSN Bay Area, LA Galaxy on Prime Ticket aka FS West 2. FS West 2 aka Prime Ticket would be the feed UNLESS CSN had the extra show and Prime Ticket didn't.

    The "major channels" were basically anything Fox or Comcast. "Minor channels" were basically anything else like ONN, Altitude, local over-the-air channels, etc...

    Of course, there was Fox Sports World (one of the greatest American channels of all time.) They'd show one MLS game every Saturday, using the regular broadcast, but add their own graphics and announcers.

    It was utter chaos when they went with HDNet's broadcast.

    Another bit: Away teams used to piggyback off the home team's video feed and just use their own graphics and announcers. Basically, the fans in either city would see the same exact thing. Now, I believe the league produces everything.

    If the old rules were still in place, we'd be a near-lock for home games and we could have a decent shot at away games unless a variable exists about announcers being at the game.
