Well against all odds, the MLS Is Back Tournament went off without a hitch (if you ignore the two teams that got kicked out for a rash of positive tests before the tourney kicked off, but that's just a minor detail, amirite?). Unfortunately some terrible team that nobody likes won it, so let's not talk about it any further.

The league's plan is for each team to play 6 matches in the span of about 2 weeks, then 12 more still-to-be-scheduled matches before an 18 (!!!) team playoff that concludes in December...although if you're one of the three Canadian teams you aren't doing jack poo poo right now because their country has someone who doesn't have poo poo for brains running their country restricted travel between the US and Canada, which means they aren't travelling down south to play any games.

Anywho, Nashville and Dallas kick things off tomorrow as the first of their 3 makeup games they'll play against each other (2 in Dallas, 1 in Nashville) since they were the aforementioned teams kicked out of the tourney and therefore didn't participate in the group stages where the points carried over into the regular season so teams wouldn't just throw all their games and get the gently caress out of Florida like any sane person would do.

Oh, and here's the standings.

They way MLS is operating during the Coronavirus would make this impossible. Teams travel to the stadium day-of, hang out for a while, play, then leave.

RBNY’s announcers keep referring to themselves as ‘New York’, and that’s confusing.

The only thing that's happened so far in this Trafico is that someone is on the touch line getting a sobriety test

And Vela just got subbed off after going to ground without contact.

The only bad thing about LAFC getting poo poo on like this is that it's at the hands of the Galaxy.
