    Doesn't England count as an international game?

    Can Fire Squash Revolution's March, Daily Herald

    I love this line:

    However, the Fire is 10-6-2 overall, so its 32 points have come in 18 games. The Revolution is 9-1-5, so its 32 points have come in 15 games, three fewer than the Fire has played.

    When the Revolution plays those three games, it will likely collect standings points that will put it above the Fire in the Eastern Conference standings.

    It’s a muddle.

    “I really don’t know what to make of it,’’ Fire defender Jim Curtin said.

    “For me, it is easy,’’ Fire coach Dave Sarachan said. “What you figure is you look at the win column. We have 10 wins. Nobody else in our conference has 10 wins. The only other team that has 10 wins is Dallas (which leads the Western Conference). I don’t think about games in hand. I’m looking at it from the position that we are in first place.”

    Yes, Dave, and the team that is undefeated having played just one game is doing EXACTLY as well as the team that has gone undefeated in 30. :rolleyes:

    Sorry, folks, I'm just a bit punchy today.

    Go Revs!

    I've got to agree with Rev79, it is silly to ignore the games in hand. For the Fire's lead in wins to maintain meaning they need to keep pace with the Revs over their remaining games AND hope that the Revs lose the extra three games. Sure, you can say that the chances are good for the Revs to lose three games, making the two teams "even" but then what about the rest of the games? From the Revs' perspective, they can keep pace with the Fire AND have three more opportunities to pick up a single point to move ahead of them. Which position would you rather be in?
