- Ben Olsen, Lamar Hunt US Open Cup
You know, Ben Olsen may just have a point about the US Open Cup qualification process.
“I am still shocked at how you win it and don’t get a berth into the final round. But it’s always about building a bigger case for trophies. As disappointing as last year was, we still managed to hold something up. I love the Open Cup. I love the history of it and the format of it is great. I hope we continue to do well in it.”
What do you think? I agree I think the club that wins (MLS, USL, PDL, amateur club team) the Cup should get an auto-pass to the final round in the next year.
Is there anything wrong with that idea? It could help make the tournament better in the end.
Anyways, Ben Olsen and DC United begin their USOC title defense tomorrow night in RFK against FC Dallas. I may be doing some live twittering during the game.
