I'm thinking Lamar needs to stop by the KC Wizards office this week to remind all of the lads how nice it would be to have two of his teams in the playoffs this year. Should KC beat DC on Saturday, that would leave a lot of the burden on the Crew but also give Chicago a big decision to make as well. As the Fire, do you: A) Go out with the intent of getting the win or tie and having the pleasure of knocking a rival out of the playoffs. As a result, you have to face DC in the first round where the United has the advantage with 7-5-3 record over Chicago. or B) Put in a bunch of your second stringers so they can lose the game but hack the living h&ll out the Crew's key players. As a result, you are now fielding a rested group against the Crew in the first round, who you are 11-5-3 against all time, and Columbus would still be recovering from having had the cr@p hacked out of them the week before. Hopefully, the Crew will be in a situation where the Fire have to make that decision and they go with option B.
