Should the OT stand or should it go the way of the shoot-out? http://www.geocities.com/Colosseum/Base/3833/mls/Week29OTAffect.gif A look at the standings shows that DC United is most negatively affected by the OT and the Metros most positively affected. Is this the affect of having a depleted team? United would certainly say yes. With a team that plays close so often they are being killed by the extra time. If this extra time was a 90 minute game it would be equivalent to DC giving up 3-4 goals and getting none of their own. SJ, DC, and Dallas have not won an OT game; however, SJ has lost one either.
