Steve Goff did his latest chat on the washington post site yesterday. One of the questions, criticizing the playoff format states:
Last year’s conference finals game at RFK against New England was the most entertaining MLS game I ever attended, and would not have been played under the new format as it was the second game in the series.
This didn’t ring right, so I checked the league site for the 2004 MLS Playoff results. As I thought, the playoff format last year was the same as this year – with a one game conference final. I’m a bit surprised Goff, or a later poster, corrected that. And its further proof that I’m apt to remember the most obscure things.
