  • Carlo Salgado-Russo says:

    Allowing teams to buy home games is detrimental to the integrity of your tournament. The excitement of an open cup is the possibility of lower level teams winning, first division teams buying home field advantage looks extremely shady.

  • Bob L says:

    Allowing teams to buy a home field often has advantages for the lower leagues. If there can be a big gate, often the lower league team gets more revenue between the buyout, portion of gate etc then they could have made otherwise. For a cash starved league this could be a good thing. Also, many of their players relish the change to play on a big time pitch. It happens in the FA Cup as well.

  • Randy says:

    I disagree with Carlo. The new system means that teams motivated to host US Open Cup matches work out deals with the lower division teams. Money moving to lower teams instead of US Soccer is a good thing. Lower teams in good situations will be able to turn down offers for the hosting rights. Teams in greater need of money will only take a deal worth more than hosting a MLS team. Atlanta has a very limited roster, but because of the deal with Seattle, they will now be able to sign some more players and put themselves in a better situation. If the loophole is closed, Atlanta still has to deal with a 23 man roster.

  • SWalkerTTU says:

    Apparently Carlo’s argument is not holding this year. Out of 14 3rd-round games (at this time), MLS is even versus the lower divisions, with 7 wins to each side, and three MLS sides going down at home (including my beloved Hoops, who managed to find yet another way to bottle it, again).

  • Rich R says:

    So seven MLS teams crashed out. One of two things is going on: (a) Our lower divisions are competitive, or (b) Our top division is not taking things seriously. Either way, why continue to protect them by waiting to the third round to bring them in? This year especially, the MLS team have failed to earn that privilege.

  • Mike says:

    When do they announce the possible quarterfinal matchups? This week? Or would they wait until after the June 5 matches since they have 3 weeks until the next round? If they waited, then they could get more accurate regional partners if there were upsets in Round 4 rather than pairing MLS regional matchups for the quarterfinals.

  • Carlo Salgado-Russo says:

    It is not like I said that the games were fixed, I said I thought it looked bad. Also think of the memories the fans of Michigan, Harrisburg, Carolina & San Antonia have gained by seeing their lower level team dispatch of MLS squads, that makes for a much more memorable experience than watching a crappy video stream on your iPad. I believe seeing those home wins will encourage the fans to come back and see more games, building a loyal local fan base is more important than a quick influx of cash, not that lower level teams can not put that cash to good use, I just think in the long run having the chance to see MLS teams in non-MLS markets promotes both the local club and the MLS. Also it is not my argument that is not holding, but soccer karma that is, with 2 of the 3 teams that tried to buy a win failing 🙂

  • Peter Nowak says:

    There is no truth that I have been suspended from the next game to give the Union a chance. We will start the following lineup:

    FW: Lionard Pajoy

    MF: Carlos Valdes, Greg Jordan, Antoine Hoppenot, Christian Hernandez, Krystian Witkowski

    DF: Michael Lahoud, Allocation Money, Allocation Money, Chris Albright

    GK: Chris Konopka

  • Ryan Heiser says:

    I am still wishing for how all countries do relegations and promotions, we have enough divisions to do so, even if it has to be one team going up or down per season… they keep adding new teams to mls, but let the teams that’s been playing for a while work their way.

  • Jazman says:

    @ Ryan. Totally agree – introduce the concept to america and maybe it would catch on in some other sports as well – bringing something fresh to an otherwise pretty dull scene imo

  • Richard Olsen says:

    I think that the MLS & NASL teams should have to start out in the first round to make it a real tournament.

    • Josh Hakala says:

      Having the top division teams start later in the tournament is what just about every cup competition does around the world. While an amateur team eliminating an MLS team DOES happening occasionally … most of them are really one-sided games. I think a lower division team should have to earn their way to a date with an MLS team.
