    MLS CUP PLAYOFFS: FORMAT

    WHO QUALIFIES: Ten teams, the top five in points from each conference at the end of the regular season, qualify for the 2012 MLS Cup Playoffs.

    The fourth and fifth place teams in each conference will play a single knockout game, the winner of which will advance to the Conference Semifinals and face the first place team in the conference.

    The four Conference Semifinals will be decided by two-game aggregate series, with the lower seed hosting the first leg and the higher seed hosting the second leg. If the aggregate score is tied after 180 minutes of play, two 15-minute extra time periods will be played in their entirety, followed by penalty kicks, if necessary.

    The two Conference Championships will be decided by a two-game aggregate series, with the lower seed hosting the first leg and the higher seed hosting the second leg. If the aggregate score is tied after 180 minutes of play, two 15-minute extra time periods will be played in their entirety, followed by penalty kicks, if necessary.

    MLS Cup will be a single championship match hosted by the higher seed. If the score is tied after 90 minutes of play, two 15-minute extra time periods will be played in their entirety, followed by penalty kicks, if necessary.

    This was one hell of a match. The first 15 minutes was a defensive chess match, trying to move pieces around, controlling possession. At half there was one highlight reel plays, a reaction save my Union keeper Zac MacMath after a Fielhaber shot was redirected (barely got a paw on it). Starting off the second half, Shanen Williams made a run down his flank, cut in for an early cross to Perlaza where he was stumped on a beautiful bicycle attempt. When the Revs found space they made the most of it, and Zac MacMath decided to show up and play today. Hell of a match by both keepers. The first and only goal of the match was in the 90th minute as both teams thought extra time was necessary. Perlaza sent in an early cross to the feet on Martinez, who took one touch to the right of the penalty spot and slotted it far post past Matt Reis.



    The might mighty Union move on in the MLS Cup action, seeking vindication against a very solid DC United squad.

    This was a hell of a match... and I was looking toward extra time when you got me in the 90th. Well played... a real battle.

    I will be available to play starting around 6PM EST. If my hockey game doesn't get cancelled due to the storm, I'll have to leave for that around 7:30 but I can play later in the evening again.

    Was Cummings a season ending injury or one that put him out for the few matches that I had remaining?

    Galaxy:

    Good game Selvy9, if it wasn't for a bit of luck and good pressuring by Buddle you would have won this game.

    I see that you're in a game. What fun is it to be up 42-0. I suppose that game has another 20 mins or so left. So I'm not sure if I'll stick around that long for MLS even if you'd be up for it.

    The only score was from Donovan on a PK.
    Good game Selvy9, that was tough to win with all the pressure you put on my defense at the end.

    I can't believe I'm out because of a stupid fucking virtual reality own goal and a phantom penalty. Game 1 the balls rolling towards my keeper, I'm holding Y so he comes out to claim it, except my defender gets there first and sicne I'm holding Y he tries to blast it up field, except it hits Buddle and ricochets in for the equalizer. Game 2 the only goal comes from a penalty call I still don't know what from. Donovan and Rochet were fighting for a ball breaking towards goal, Donovan wins it, gets a shot off, keeper saves, and here comes the ref pointing to the spot. Fuck fuck fuck fuck. That said, Hassli had a couple chances he should have buried but just put wide, but still. FUCK!!!!!

    Great tight games though Virulentmeteor5, and good luck in the semis going forward man. As reluctant as I was to go with this manual league, this turned into one of my favorite leagues I'm in period. I hope some form of MLS keeps going with FIFA 13. Playing the TFL with a bunch of 4.5 and 5 star teams doesn't really do it for me, but this was a shit load of fun. See ya'll in a month.

    I will try to catch Michael between his NCAA games sometime tonight between all the soccer I would like to watch. I am not counting on it much.
