    A tie will not be decided by away goals is that correct? Under that assumption I am going.

    SJ 0-1
    LA 2-1
    LA 2
    KC 1
    KC 1-2
    CO 2-0

    LA 3
    CH 2

    CH 2-1
    DC 1-0
    CH 3
    NY 1
    NY 0-1(4)
    NE 0-1(3)

    Hope I’m wrong.

    nutter, that looks like computer code.

    I can see you're picking LA over Chi in the final.

    I'm taking Wiz over Col; SJ over LA; Wiz over SJ.
    In east, chi over DC; NE over metrosexuals; Chi over NE.

    Chicago gets even with KC in the final, winning 2-1. Preki scores for us, of course.

    Van Buren has it pretty well pegged - including his frist point.

    It was supposed to look like a tournament bracket, but the board munched the spaces that made it readable. If you hit the "Quote" button for his post, it will magically put the spaces back in.

    Back on topic:

    Based on the last 2 games, I think LA has a very good chance of getting past San Jose. That said, I would still pick SJ to find a way to get a win when it counts.

    Seems like the West is really up for grabs. Chicago will really have to screw up to not win the East.

    I think/hope LA can get past SJ in this first round and also we get past Colorado. Assuming that happens, I see no reason why we can't beat LA and go to MLS Cup...I don't think thats too optimistic.

    Sounds like a great plan to me. :cool: :D

    I'd much rather drive than KC than fly to San Jose.

    It's a tad bit cheaper, too.

    so does this stat bother anyone else or has it oulived its meaning in the new playoff format?

    The Wizards are undefeated in their last seven postseason games at Kansas City (6–0–1), and they’re winless in their last eight postseason games on the road (0–7–1). …

    Any thoughts?

    It doesn't concern me at all. As long as we don't get blown out we have a chance to win the series.

    Based on past playoffs, the new format really benefits the Wizards.

    Applying the new format to 2001 & 2002 playoffs:

    2001 - KC wins the series either 3-2 or 4-2 against Miami (depending on which away game you use.)

    2002:
    Game 1) game ends 1-1 in regulation, no OT played.
    Game 2) KC wins 4-1
    Game 3) LA wins 5-2

    So either KC Wins 5-2 or it's tied 6-6 and we play OT to decide a winner.

    Its hard to compare since 2001 and 2002 were game 2's, and as Ante Razov said, nobody seemed to care about game 2's.

    As long as we keep the away leg close (1-2 maybe) or can get a tie, then we should be in great shape heading into the home leg of this round if this stat holds true.
