Here's a 5-part proposal for MLS regular season and "playoffs": 1. Eliminate the divisions. Go to a single table. 2. Instead of traditional playoffs, MLS would arrange for a number of foreign club teams to travel to America for games against MLS clubs. Let's say MLS signs up 6 foreign teams. Top of the MLS table gets to choose which foreign team they want to play, at their home stadium. Second in the MLS table chooses next, and so on for all 6. Attendance would have to be better than that of current playoff games. 3. To make the games meaningful, and to get the best players on the field, winner gets larger percentage (75% maybe) of the purse. Sell broadcast rights overseas to generate revenue. (Wouldn't foreign fans love to watch their beloved club teams kick American/MLS butt?) 4. Have the MLS season end earlier, so that these games would occur just before foreign league play begins. Great tune-up for foreign clubs. Avoid conflicts with World Series, etc. 5. As much as possible, schedule these games on different days, so that MLS fans could watch all of them on TV. (Great opportunity to see how MLS compares with international leagues.) What do y'all think?
