The short end of it is, we're sticking it out with the affiliation route for another year. I do agree that it all really comes down to a money thing with the Hunts, which is something none of us can be shocked by. They do put a ton of resources into the academy and in a way I get why they are hesitant to pull the trigger on a USL squad here. But I'd also still really like them to do this thing already.

If Wednesday's game between LA and Seattle was any indication as to how the Western Conference playoff games might go, last night's game in Portland didn't disappoint either. SKC is out of the running, which means FCD gets a trip to Washington this weekend.
Matt Doyle breaks down how crazy the Timbers win was last night. Also, how do you hit the post twice in a penalty kick? Asking for a friend.

I wonder what is worse, not reaching the playoffs for so many years or finally reaching the post season only to get booted out so quickly in a blowout loss.
A big 3-0 win at home in the playoffs is always a good kick start to things but I've been saying for weeks that this Montreal team has the making of one that can go very deep into the playoffs.
The saga in NY continues with their coaching situation. For everyone's sake I would like to see them just figure it all out and move on.
