WAIT. Remember how I (not me really ) screamed how the playoff format was not working 4 games in to the 11 game playoff system? I was wrong and I amdit it. Here is why: Out of the 4 series, 3 of the top seeds advanced depsite the fact that two of them were behind going in to the second game. Week 2 Playoff attendace averaged 15,259 fans - about the 2004 season average. That makes the 2004 Playoff attendance 11,820 - which is not great but not a wasteland either. Plus you know DC will pack the house. KC? Anybody's guess. The games were riveting. All 4 series. DC dominance and the Metros inability to do anything. The stunning collapse of SJ while KC somehow mustered 3 goals with a 93 minutes goalazo from some no-name rookie. LA overcoming their own coach to victory. But most of all the iron-spined Revs and the COLOSSAL coaching blunders by Andrulis. Witness: 1. Not starting Edson Buddle? In favor of Dante Washington Huh? 2. Having Tony Sanneh play center-mid. Huh? 3. The PK's. On the humanity. Paule's - okay I understand. But Sanneh's slow-motion PK would have been saved in city league. 4. Taking out Martino? In place of a rookie? All of this drama brought to you by a playoff format which I hated last week but love this week. We can argue about 8 teams out of 10 or 12. We can argue the merits of any perceived home field advantage. But the home and home format makes for great playoff drama. Every goal counts.
