I suppose I could have put this in MLS General for more eyeballs, but since it's complete fantasy at this point, I went with MLS:Fans. So MLS fans, should MLS help start a "Community Shield" (more properly called a Supercup I suppose) game to start the season? I figure there are a few ways to do it. Personally, I think (if it was done) it should be the Supporter's Shield winner vs. the US Open Cup winner, with the MLS Cup Winner taking the spot if a team took the Supporter Shield and the USOC, and the Supporter's Shield runner-up if someone won the improbable treble. And the location should be the home stadium of the USOC winner (an extra home gate the next season should give MLS teams a little more reason to win that, and that a USL team could host an MLS team would give them a further incentive to win.) Another ideas would be Supporter's Shield winner vs. MLS Cup winner. If this was the route, I'd like to see the game played at a neutral site that doesn't currently have an MLS team. Maybe St. Louis one year, Miami the next, Nashville, Milwaukee, Ottawa, etc. etc. Just to help develop the game in different places. Do either one of these, and then get a TV partner, either ESPN or FSC, to televise it, and get some sponsors, and it would be a money-maker for all (hopefully). So if you think MLS should have a game like this, tell me how you would set it up (which of the two, USOC winner, MLS Cup Winner, Supporter's Shield winner would you pick to go) and would you do a neutral stadium (but an MLS city), a neutral stadium (but a non-MLS city) or a non-neutral stadium (stadium of one of your winners). And if you don't think the MLS should have one, tell me why. (Let me guess, don't we have enough meaningless games in the schedule with the All-Star game and Superliga.) No poll though, because there are too many nuances for an online poll. And to stop the Europosing arguments now (please see my post on naming conventions if you want to know where on that scale I fall), I came up with the idea as a way to help raise the desire to win the USOC for MLS and USL teams alike, and it would be the same as say the Hall of Fame game which is the official beginning of the preseason of the NFL.
