http://www.mlsnet.com/content/02/tino0808palace.html Tino Palace on top of his game. Among some of the news & rumors being tossed around MLSHQ: "TCS SAYS: It has been reported by Craig Merz in Columbus, and TCS has it from another very solid source, that there is indeed a playoff proposal that has been put forward that would take the top team eight teams at the end of the regular season and put them into two groups. The format would be a around-robin, a la the World Cup, with the top two teams in each group going through to a knockout phase." I like it fine. But it still does not solve the problem of 8 teams out of 10 in the palyoffs. "TCS SAYS: Going back to an East versus West game for next season, when the game is scheduled to be held out at the country's largest Home Depot, just ain't gonna be good enough. The word being thrown around is that next year could bring an MLS All-Star side taking on a major European powerhouse - with Manchester United and Real Madrid among the names being mentioned." Sounds Great and its Bruce Arena approved.
