• Pondering the playoffs
    One more week remains in the regular season, and unlike past years, no playoff spots hang in the balance. The eight teams are ordained, matchups to be determined, and thoughts of revising the format yet again are being raised. The MLS playoff formula may not be "broken" as Real Salt Lake coach Jason Kreis proclaimed last week, but safe to say there will be intense discussions of revamping it when the Board of Governors meet during the week of MLS Cup 2010.
