i first must admit that i've been away from mls and these here boards way too long...but when i did resurface this year and watched the conference finals, I just assumed there would be a return fixture...much to my dismay, there wasn't. anyway, obviously i've been on hiatus, so i'm not the expert on these matters, that just struck me as extremely insane. could someone please explain this matter to me? the league is on a nice "getting it right" streak, including ditching the shootout, ditching the "Burn" nickname, etc ... i can live with a one game MLS Cup (for obvious reasons), i just can't figure out why the conference finals aren't home-and-home, aggregate...that seems to be clearly the most sure fire way of getting the better team through. seriously, am i the only one that thinks this?
