My biggest argument against the current Cup final format of a predetermined site is that if the two teams participating in the final are not from the host city, it cheats the supporters of the finalist clubs from being there to support their teams on the day that it coutns the most. If this nation was smaller than it would be possible to do but since it is not, it is very hard and expensive for fans to fly or drive across the country to see their clubs play. If the final was home/home then fans would be able to see their clubs in their own stadium fight for the Cup. I love the 1st round format, it ought to continue into the second and final rounds in my opinion, it is inconsistent to have home/home and then just one single elimination match for conference final and final? Next year the Final will be in Dallas. If D.C. Utd makes it again and lets say L.A. orS.J. make it, it wouldnt be fair to those fans to have travel to Dallas, where is their reward for supporting the club all year long? Many if not most are relegated to watching it on TV, takes alot of it. And then, who is to say Dallas fans would even go and watch? The HDC did not sell out this year for the final, why? Because what do L.A. fans care about D.C. and K.C.? MLS is notthe NFL and should not try to emulate the Super Bowl, even the MLS Cup Trophy looks like the Lombardi Trophy? We need to stick to our football traditions and cultures, it is what sets us apart from the other sports leagues in the USA.
