MLS Hypes Its "Decision Day"
Major League Soccer has been hyping "MLS Decision Day" for quite some time.
Fortunately for the league, there are several teams down to this coming weekend's final regular season matches which will be battling for a better seating in the MLS playoffs.
If all the teams were already locked in to final positions in the Eastern and Western Conference standings, there would be nothing to decide, nothing to hype, and that would result in an embarrassment to the league.
Of course, there are other matters which may not be determined until the weekend's conclusion such as the player with the most goals, assists, etc.
But the hype is really more about raising revenue for the league's coffers via sponsorships than anything else..
