Drinking non-alcoholic beverages from the reserve cup ...
SO, more exciting possibilities for MLS.

In my last post, I described the inherent unfairness of having more than one team owned by the same owner even if the owner is by all accounts a great guy and has no reason to do such things.

In this post, I wonder aloud if D.C. really wants to win or if it's just lip a service.

United and the Wizzle are down to the wire for the Reserve Division title and the 20 large that comes with it.

Interesting thought: United is locked into the second playoff spot in the East no matter what they do. Why not send everyone from the first team but Moreno (he needs to try for the Golden Boot) to play for the reserves this weekend? United loses nothing but could you imagine the Crew's reserves facing off against Freduardo, Dema, Ben Olsen and others on Sunday morning? I'd say United would be in pretty good shape for the title.

And it's not like Kansas City could do the same ... they need all hands on deck to down the Waldos, er, Hoops.

Veeerrry eeeentereesting. How 'bout it, Piotr?

Absolutley Not. The only first teamer you might think about sending down there is Jamil Walker, since he's played in, what, at least seven Reserve games? But that's it. That DC United are in a position to win the reserve division is work of Merritt, Nickell, Shawn K (whose name I can never spell right) and others. Let them finish it out.

Also, I'm going to the reserve game Sunday. As a fan, I certainly want to see them win it, but see the kids whose work was really put into the job win it.

Yeah, it's nice to let the kids win it but wouldn't they also like the extra cash that comes with winning the division?

I think D.C. should send down at least half their regulars and earn their teammates the extra cash.

I'd like to see the reserves win it themselves, then get to keep all the cash. I'd also like to see the regulars stay in form at RFK tonight. No reason to play with chemistry going into the playoffs...

It was primarily the reserves that played, to the point of Jamie's cousin getting a few touches. The big names were Adu and Walker getting starts, and getting subbed off.

Fun game to watch. It is completley different to see the game from as close as you can get during the reserve division matches.
