MLS Changes Blog Roundup

On the heels of the MLS Cup, both Off Wing Opinon and The Sports Economist have pieces on changes in the works for Major League Soccer discovered in this AP article: MLS Should look to Rest of World.  The article is pretty short and lacking in actual details about what changes might be in store for the league so I wouldn’t jump to any conclusions.  I think it’s mostly an afirmation that in the first  years of the league, those in charge changed too much about the setup in an attempt to Americanize a global sport.  Changes over the last few years such as counting the clock up, eliminating the shootout, and allowing regular season games to end in a tie have brought play in line with how its played in the rest of the world.
