He said what?

Red Bulls boss Hans Backe says he's rather win the Supporters Shield than MLS Cup. Funny thing is... he's basically right, of course. The postseason is solely for money and the exposure of "added importance" (which is also about money, really).

Oh to have been a fly on the wall for the reading reaction of league officials!

i disagree, playoffs are whats important. never have been a fan of the table system to determine league champ

Table system is what matters. The best team should be determined over 34 matches, not 5.

How can you not be a fan of the table system to determine league champion? Don't like the idea of everyone playing everyone? Like Jeffrey said league champion is who was better over the whole season not who gets hot right at the end.
