What They're Saying

“The only thing that becomes tricky is playing nine months one game a week pretty much and now all of a sudden playing hopefully three games in [seven] days. We’re playing two games in three, three-and-a-half days and then if you’re fortunate enough to advance then we’re playing Sunday, Wednesday, Saturday. It’s mind blowing, mind blowing, for any coach in this league so that’ll be interesting for the teams who advance. Hopefully, it’s us. Hopefully, it’s a situation that we’re faced with.”

-- Mike Petke, coach of the Supporters' Shield champion New York Red Bulls, ripping the MLS playoff schedule that has his team potentially playing three games in over seven days, then two games over four weeks. (Soccer by Ives)
