    I thought the above pod cast would cause more comments. It was overall very positive with the usual, mostly constructive criticism. Year 25 for the MLS may see a real break thru with most of the teams being competitive.

    The games in the first week were very competitive, no big blowouts. This could make for an exciting year. It is not true that almost all teams make the playoffs, it is about half. Is that worse then having more then half the teams in the EPL be forever in the bottom half?
    The setup in the U.S. is and will continue to be different then Europe. All sports here have playoffs. so, why not let that fact, alone.
