I'd expect a club with 3 DP's to beat a team with 1 DP, especially in their own stadium. That said, I'm very disappointed with MLS and how this whole DP thing has turned out. If it isn't obvious, LA and NY would be the two most high profile, highly desired destinations for most potential, future league DP's. Yeah, sure ALL the clubs can have a DP but I'm sure places like Houston, KC, and Columbus are real high on the list of top foreign players wanting to come here. So no, it's not a level playing field despite the protestations of LA and NY supporters and it just makes what Houston has done in it's short existence all the more admirable as we just got our first this year. So I'm going to make a bet here. I bet that the 2nd NY team that MLS is putting together will have 3 DP's before we have our 2nd. On a side note, this homefield advantage for the highest seeded team is for the birds. I know Garber is concerned about filling seats but that's beyond ridiculous and I'd say that even if Houston was a number one seed. That needs to revert back to a rotating venue basis. Ok, off my soapbox.
