    WORKED HARD AND PLAYED GREAT THE ENTIRE SEASON. MY HAT OFF TO YOU, HOUNDS!
    LET’S BE SERIOUS ABOUT SOCCER ONCE FOR ALL. LET’S HAVE A PLAYOFF STRUCTURE LIKE IN ANY OTHER “AMERICAN” SPORT.
    SINGLE ELIMINATION? ANYONE/ANY TEAM CAN/COULD HAVE A BAD DAY.
    A SLIP IS NOT A FALL. THE HOUNDS ARE STILL STANDING TALL AND MANY, MANY TEAMS ARE AFRAID OF THESE “ANIMAL HOUNDS”.
    SINGLE ELIMINATION? THIS LEAGUE NEEDS REORGANIZED, RESTRUCTURED, REPLACED BY FOOTBALL PEOPLE, NOT SOCCER MONEY HUNGER.
    STOP THE MANY MARKETING GOALS ONLY.
    BRING MORE SOCCER GOALS TO PITTSBURGH.
    WE HAVE THE TEAM, THE STADIUM, THE PRO PLAYERS AND THE GREAT PITTSBURGH FANS. NOW, LET’S SPEAK UP!
    SINGLE ELIMINATION?
    ORLANDO COULD NOT “TOUCH US” NEXT WEEK AT HIGHMARK.
    WE WERE ROBBED OF THAT CHANCE.
    SINGLE ELIMINATION? GIVE THE LEAGUE A RED CARD!!!

    JUST A DIE HARD FAN…

    PABLO
