    Is the FC Dallas v. NY Red Bulls game fixed?

    OK. I see what you mean, but it sure is confusing.

    Hey, isn't there an equal "wait-time" between the playoffs and when the final is played in the NFL? And didn't Garber come from a pro-football (tackle football, that is to say...) background, thus the 14-day wait? As I recall the NFL uses this interim to hype the Super Bowl, ads on tv, radio, twitter, facebook, magazines, newspapers, etc., all leading up to the big, and I mean really B-I-G day. So what lessons are the braintrusts of the MLS Office marketing, PY, and other publicity desks/departments doing about it? Ok, so it is just a little taste of food for thought!

    While 14 days may be too long (?). MLS needs all the "hype" and "build-up" it can get!

    When will the MLS TV commentators get it right, i.e., they all seem to fabricate that Rodgers & Richards are key elements to the RB team when in fact these two players have no soccer brain whatsoever...Lalas should letnup on Tim Ream, it's not one player, it's the team.
