The answer is both. Obviously.
But as creator of this poll, I’m not letting that be an option.
The question is, ‘Which game would you rather the Sounders win?’ and the two choices are Sunday’s MLS road game against the Los Angeles Galaxy or Wednesday’s U.S. Open Cup road game against the Tampa Bay Rowdies.
The response, I feel, is significant because if the majority of participating fans would rather win the Open Cup game, you would expect that same majority of fans would like to see a strong lineup Wednesday (and maybe some concessions in Sunday’s lineup against the Galaxy).
Or maybe some attitudes have shifted in regards toward winning the Open Cup, especially after a ludicrous cross-country assignment in between two leagues games in the Los Angeles area.
