With the MLS, NASL, and USL playoffs all either going on right now or about to start lets address the mythical topic of "No Playoffs" and an Open Pyramid.
Hot take: I like playoffs for MLS. No need for Pro/Rel. Just get rid of the conferences and seed the top 12 teams instead— Chris Blankenship (@Cdoghoo4) October 24, 2017
It's just that time of year where people roll out the tired trope that somehow having an Open Pyramid featuring #ProRelForUSA somehow stops us from having "Playoffs" as well.
We can have postseason Cup Playoffs. (Which is what MLS and USL have by the way)
We can have split season Championship Playoffs. (Which is what NASL has by the way)
We can have... now stick with me here... Promotion Playoffs. (How exiciting would this be?!?!)
We can still have playoffs. We can literally design the system to do and be anything we want. We can design the system to give us whatever broadcasters who are willing to pay $4B for broadcast rights want.
The growth of the #ProRelForUSA movement in the last few weeks has been amazing! Keep up the great work. Make sure we use the #ProRelForUSA hashtag and keep the pressure on the establishment!
