  • MTL says:

    Love seeing the NPSL teams almost get blanked and the USASA getting a couple wins.

  • El Conductor says:

    It has not been a good tournament for the state of Colorado.

  • JAG says:

    MTL, NPSL level is amature…. not suprised with the results..

  • Theo says:

    Looks like in round #4 non-MLS teams are all playing away, with the exception of Carolina Railhawks (home vs Chivas), quite unfair I think… I hope a bunch of them still advances, but it’s definitively more difficult

  • Gary says:

    Yep, that random coin flip sure was unfair. It’s 1 out of 4–if one flip had gone the other way it’d be perfectly even for the non-MLS home/away.

  • Matt says:

    It’s perfectly fair. But this is yet another example of why USSF should do a livestream of the draw or something. Just let people watch it so everyone knows what went down. It would massively decrease the bitching.

  • @Theo, There’s a minimum standard for stadiums to host the games… I don’t know what the minimum standards are, offhand, but it stands to reason that the MLS teams will be more likely to have stadiums that will meet the standards than amateur or development teams will.

  • W says:

    Matt, pepole will always find a reason to bitch. Hope 3 of the 4 non-mls teams make it through though. Sorry Rowdies, come June 12th you are out of the tourny.

  • Brian says:

    Theo, 9 of 16 games in the third round were at lower seeded teams, is that unfair? One flip either round makes a 50/50 split. Seems about right to me

  • KT says:

    So people bitched for years about the bidding for home games system, and now it’s random and all of a sudden it’s “quite unfair.”

  • SJJ says:

    Now that all ameteur teams have hit the road, which of them gets the scratch for advancing furthest in the tournament? Goes to the tie-breakers of which levels of teams they defeated, right?

  • SJJ says:

    If I read this correctly, Reading beat NPSL and USL-Pro; Tucson beat USL-Pro and TIED NASL; Ocean City beat NPSL and USL-Pro; Des Moines beat NPSL and NASL. So Des Moines would win it by beating the highest-level team?

  • You’re correct. They were awarded the prize money (Des Moines). Apparently the tiebreaker isn’t weighted.

  • Mad Dougie Fresh says:

    Orlando City gets professional soccer’s top goal scorer, SKC loaner Dom Dwyer (who had to sit out round four), back for the quarter finals. Neither Chicago nor Columbus should take Orlando City lightly. They are well coached, play stout defense, and finish well at the net. I think they go thru to the semis. If they avoid FC Dallas or RSL in the semis, they might find themselves in the finals.

  • Greyghost says:

    Not sure they get Dom for any cup matches. SKC’s stance was that the loan agreement did not cover Open Cup games at all

  • mike says:

    Are the Semifinal matchups already set?
    RSL/Carolina winner vs. Dallas/Portland winner
    DC/NE winner vs. Orlando/(Chicago-Columbus) winner?

  • No. They are supposed to announce the Semifinal matchups soon.

  • Well, he already scored 3 goals for Orlando in US Open Cup play this year, so I’m pretty sure the loan agreement only covers playing against Sporting KC. Could be a nice weapon to play against the Chicago Fire or Columbus Crew

  • wesbadia says:

    The loan of Dwyer covered any competition Orlando City would play in. He’s essentially their player for competition purposes. The issue SKC raised was a world-wide gentleman’s agreement that loaned players not play against the loaning club. Whether you agree with that practice or not, that’s the arrangement SKC and Orlando cited for Dwyer’s absence on the roster this week.

  • Theo says:

    I don’t believe much at the “coin flip”, I think it would be nice if the lower seeded team could host the game, and proceed with the coin flip only if two teams belong to the same division. That would all to the advantage of the show IMO, if a MLS team hosts a USL or PDL team the stadium is going to be empty or almost, if it’s the other way around it’s going to get packed, plus you give supporters of a lower league division the chance to see a higher division one.

  • Braden says:

    @Theo – Attendance at last night’s RSL v Carolina game was over 10,000 (stadium roughly half full). I don’t think that’s too bad considering this game was not included in season ticket packages. Google says that’s about double the Railhawks attendance. You think twice as many fans would show up in Carolina to see RSL, especially knowing a loss is likely?

  • Is there a date set for the final coin flip?

  • Theo says:

    To me it’s not a matter of who can have a better attendance, it’s a matter of who can have a better attendance compared to the size of the place. You tell me RSL draws 10K spectators to the game, about 50% of their normal crowd. Would you rather see 10K in a 20K stadium or 5K in a 5K stadium? I’d go for the latter, the atmosphere is going to be a lot better. Plus you have given people who support a small team the possibility to see a big name; if Carolina plays @LA, nobody will care and most usual supporters will ditch the game. I don’t have to remind you that last year (or the one before, can’t remember) when Carolina played LA home, they put tickets on sale right after the game that would have qualified them in a way to meet LA, and tickets were gone in 2 hours… Do you really think Carolina fans wouldn’t go to the game because they know their team would get its ass whooped? (which by the way didn’t happen)

  • Theo, what are you on about?

  • Theo says:

    Sorry man I don’t understand your question, all I can tell you is that I regularly go see DC Utd, and when we play in the USOC, sometimes we play at the Soccerplex in Boyd (MD) and there are some ~3~4K people in a small stadium and it’s great, other times we play @RFK with perhaps 8K people in a stadium that holds 46K and it feels miserable (regardless of the score)
