Tough group top to bottom, but Germany is the only superpower in the group. We have proven that we can beat Portugal in the past (2002). I believe the current US squad is better than that one. That Portugal team was considered their Golden Generation. The current version is a one man team. You stop ...

Go back to Sudden Death, but auction off possession. So the two teams bid for possession by "bidding" on how far back they'd be willing to take possession. If both teams are offensive juggernauts, you might see both teams willing to start on their own 1 yard line. This makes sudden death fair and...

[quote]Since your employer contributes 4%, put in at least the 5% to match it. If you can't live without that money, put it in "after-tax" get your match, then withdraw your contribution. That way you still get your match by basically contributing nothing. Take the free money when it's available.

With baseball's (or any other American sports's) revenue sharing module, I doubt the prize pool is nearly as lucrative as say winning the Champions League. If FSG wanted to maximize revenue, they'd probably want it to get to game 7 for the gate receipts. That said, it would be a great year for LFC...
