I'm sure for most of you, last night's loss still stings. Good morning Galaxy fans. The LA Galaxy were dismissed from CONCACAF Champions League play last night, as Toronto were able to win 2-1 at the Home Depot Center. It's a weird feeling, that was last year's project put on the back burner for three months while contracts expired and players went on loan and some didn't come back in one piece.
If the Galaxy had won, the schedule would still be an issue. There would be complaints that the Galaxy had to throw their first two games because MLS didn't take into consideration how difficult it is to start a season with the two games per week pace.
Taking CCL seriously and the keeping the current MLS schedule are unsustainable. Now, here is the news:
