MLS Updates[edit]

Hey, thanks for the updates to the various 2008 MLS articles. When you do updates to the standings and whatnot, can you do the updates to the Golden Boot as well? Especially on Saturdays, the piecemeal editing is a killer for trying to get accurate edits done. Thanks. -- Grant.Alpaugh 13:27, 18 April 2008 (UTC)

Please realize that you should make a table of the tied teams counting only the games played between those teams with gd in those games being the first tie breaker, and then on down the line. Only if you are still tied after that should you use goal difference in all games and continue from there. Please respond on my talk page or this one so I know we are on the same wavelength on this. I appreciate your help though as sometimes I do make serious mistakes. -- Grant.Alpaugh 05:57, 20 April 2008 (UTC)


Yeah, I got ya. I thought it was head to head then gd directly. Thanks for correcting.

It is. I misread the tiebreakers. They're right now. My bad. -- Grant.Alpaugh 06:59, 20 April 2008 (UTC)

NE beat KC (1-3). So they have 3 points in H-t-H. KC lost to NE (1-3) and TOR (2-0). So they have 0 points in H-t-H. TOR beat KC (2-0). So they have 3 points in H-t-H.

This means that NE and TOR go to overall GD which TOR wins -1 to -2. KC finishes last no matter what.

So that's why it's TOR, NE, and KC, regardless of what MLS says. I don't think they can keep their tiebreakers straight. I'm sure I'm right. -- Grant.Alpaugh 05:42, 4 May 2008 (UTC)

I just checked the MLS league rules and it does appear that you should be right.Sixkick (talk) 06:20, 4 May 2008 (UTC)

Nuvola apps important.svg You currently appear to be engaged in an edit war according to the reverts you have made on Major League Soccer. Note that the three-revert rule prohibits making more than three reversions on a single page within a 24 hour period. Additionally, users who perform a large number of reversions in content disputes may be blocked for edit warring, even if they do not technically violate the three-revert rule. If you continue, you may be blocked from editing. Please do not repeatedly revert edits, but use the talk page to work towards wording and content that gains a consensus among editors. If necessary, pursue dispute resolution. --Bobblehead (rants) 22:46, 14 May 2008 (UTC)

PS: As an experienced editor, Grant should already know not to edit war, so a templated warning isn't necessary, but you appear to be a newer edit and I don't see a warning about this on your talk page. --Bobblehead (rants) 22:46, 14 May 2008 (UTC)

Mediation case.[edit]

Hello, I am Atyndall and I have taken on a mediation cabal case Roehl Sybing filed regarding Major League Soccer in hope to help all editors involved to solve your dispute. This discussion will be taking place here and I implore you to please add your opinions on the matter there, I will be researching the issue also but your help in the matter is greatly appreciated. Thankyou.  Atyndall93 | talk  10:26, 3 June 2008 (UTC)

Attendance figures[edit]

Months ago, you updated the average attendance figures of some of MLS teams, including D.C. United. I've been working on that article and put it up for good article nomination this week. I'm wondering where the source of attendance numbers might be so I can add a reference. I've found articles that give individual years figures, but they've so far all differed from those in the article, and don't divide by regular season/playoffs. Best!--Patrick «» 00:42, 29 June 2009 (UTC)

http://web.mlsnet.com/mls/history/ That site has most all of the info you'll need. If you want average attendances in a year then scroll down to that year and click on "MLS Stats" for the corresponding year.Sixkick (talk) 02:32, 29 June 2009 (UTC)
Thanks a bunch!--Patrick «» 22:16, 30 June 2009 (UTC)

This is long overdue[edit]

FIFA World Cup project[edit]

WikiProject Munich is doing a special FIFA World Cup project which will run during the World Cup. Kingjeff (talk) 17:01, 15 May 2010 (UTC)

By the way, there are a few American players on the list. Kingjeff (talk) 17:02, 15 May 2010 (UTC)

MLS table editing[edit]

I saw that you've made some recent updates to the MLS table templates. I recently created a template, {{MLS tr}} for each row in the table that I thought would help with the regular updates. However, no one has given feedback on whether this has actually helped or hurt. If it makes the edits harder, then I'd rather revert back to the raw table. I'm interested in your opinion on whether this makes it harder or easier. Thanks! --SkotyWATC 17:16, 28 May 2010 (UTC)

I like the template. It makes editing go by a little bit faster than the old way. Good job! Sixkick (talk) 21:11, 28 May 2010 (UTC)

Recent MLS edits[edit]

Not sure why you removed the season point total winners from the article. Perhaps please use the edit summary or discuss on the talk page. Also your removal of template parameters is similarly confounding. I essentially rolled both changes back since they don't improve the article. --Walter Görlitz (talk) 19:17, 12 January 2012 (UTC)
