    Just saying - having a best of 3 match fall tournament does not make you the "best" team in NISA.

    Not sure your point here, but we seldomly decide the “best” team in the US.
    Is your point that Oakland is the best? Detroit beat them twice in this tournament.
    Who was “better”?
    And, I mean, it was 5 matches for both Oakland and Detroit to get to the final - that’s more than USL’s.

    My point being is that the fall tournament was too short, had a very minimal amount of matches and was arguably pointless. What's the point of the regular season format if every team is included in this one-off tournament? Is Detroit City the better team just because they advanced despite only winning 2 of 3 matches? What about Chattanooga's regular season record? Does that not matter?

    USL playoff system makes more sense than...

    whatever this means.

    Yes, because this was an ideal year and this was exactly how the league wanted it to work.

    The regular season seeded the playoffs. If the Stars had won the regular season, it might have completely upended the way the playoffs played out.

    Ultimately, they salvaged the first half of the season and maybe the second half looks more normal. It’s messy, yes, but these clubs don’t have deep resources to play a fuller season with no revenue coming in. They found a workable solution and it seemed to go pretty well.

    The comparison to what USL has done would be more appropriate next May. DCFC didn’t win the season, they won the apertura.

    The league that has more teams folding and moving to USL than seasons under their belt thinks they can receive Division 2 sanctioning by 2022 in a post-pandemic economic climate.

    Huh, looks like they figured out Division 3...

    /facepalm

    Looks like another joke league running on rainbows and unicorn farts is about to join the trash heap...

    To be fair there have been challenges this season. Colorado are ahead of 3 teams with more points.
