    After the onslaughts of RBNY>RSL and LA>DCU, I think its apparent MLS teams can put up the big numbers.

    My question is that a good bad thing? Sure its entertaining, but it makes you wonder what the hell is going on at defense...? RBNY can't even beat PDL teams by any great margin, how are they crushing RSL 6-0?

    Hey, MintyDude, put an [R] on this before you have the wrath of the mods come down on your head...

    Re: Apparently MLS can score goals?

    Because you put the RB/RSL score in there. If you can still edit, go back and edit the title, or take the RB/RSL score out.

    Of course, it may not matter, because many people don't come to this forum...

    And, to your question, I think lopsided scores are not good for the league, nor for the fans of those on the small end of the scoreline.

    If there were an [R] on this I could say more, but even to mention which teams came in on the short end of the stick tonight would be violating the mandate to not put anything giving away a result in a thread without an [R].

    Not good for my MFLS team. Just added Klein and Cunningham. Put 4 DC players in.

    I'd like to see MLS actively encourage teams to play more attacking soccer in the spring and summer.

    A fan who enjoyed a fun, entertaining game is more likely to come back than a fan who sat through a boring game with few scoring chances.

    Now Rocket, I agree with you completely, but let's not piss off the majority of the folks on this board by saying that :). Haha, what a great night to buy MLSlive.tv and for soccer!

    Nothing wrong with high scoring close games. The best I ever saw was the DC/Revs playoff that went into overtime 3-3 and ended with penalties. I was so damned drained at the end of that one that I could hardly stand.

    It's the lopsided ones like today's (both teams I cared about were on the short end of it) that hurt. And if there were a pattern to it, then there would really be a problem, since no matter how strong the love, people would stop coming.

    Parity is not a bad thing...and this is being said by a DC United supporter.

    I'd like to know just how you propose to do this.

    The motivation of retaining their positions will always be a greater motivation than some wishful league fiat. Coaches stay coaches by winning games, and it's far easier to win consistently via defensive strategy.

    If MLS gets the owners on board with this idea, they can easily put pressure on the coaches to play attacking soccer.

    Let the coaches know that they will be evaluated not only on wins & losses, but on what kind of soccer they play

    FYI-->RSL went down to 10 men just after 8 minutes.

    Also, it didn't help in the DC-LA game that a DC player went out injured after the 3rd substitution had been made. That may have accounted for 1 goal in the last 10 minutes.

    i think the dcu-galaxy result needs to be scrapped and the game re-played.

    that's not right that dc lost, especially by that much. i could not watch the game, i wish i did. but this is bull$hit.

    the galaxy should not win at dc. something is wrong with that.

    Unfortunately, it looks like the Galaxy are stepping up their game right when they need to.

    I am going to be Major League pissed off if the Galaxy make it to MLS Cup again.

    Or bonuses to players who score hat tricks, or over consecutive games.

    I dunno, really. Now that I think about it, it may disrupt the team effort. But I'm more for incentives than pressure.

    I say $100k to a player with a hat trick and $200k for the leading goal scorer. Do something similar for the saves and assists leaders.

    Speaking of high-scoring games, this Chicas-1836 game is another one.

    Yep and....

    That foul in the box on De Rossario that was never called, near the end of the match should have lead to another PK.

    Yeah it should have been a PK, but the original PK shouldnt have been anything, so I say it made up for it.

    I hope when MLS is at 14+ teams, runs like the Galaxy's most recent wont be the type of thing that gets them into playoffs, and winning MLS cups. It's fun to see an underdog win, but in retrospect, its ridiculous they took the cup last year.

    Scores from tonight. Games started at 7:30 PM ET and ended just after 1 AM ET. (5 1/2 hours.)

    DC 2 - 5 LA
    NYRB 6 - 0 RSL
    CHI 1 - 0 COL
    CHV 3 - 2 HOU

    19 goals scored in 4 games. That's gotta be a goals-per-game average in a single matchday. (Keep in mind, there's 2 games tomorrow to be played, but Columbus has this issue with scoring goals...)

    High scoring games is the best thing for MLS. Now maybe not one sided 6-0 victories. but DC 2 LA 5 and Houston 2 Chivas 3 are much better for MLS than any 0-0 game.
