Quick notes: CONCACAF Champions Cup

With the MLS 2006 season now in the books, most US soccer fans are either switching over to fulltime support for European or South American clubs. Some move on to being able to watch the NFL or NHL or NBA. For domestic soccer action, we have to wait until the end of February for the CONCACAF Champions Cup tournament to start with DC United (Supporters Shield Winner) and the newly crowned MLS Cup Champs, Houston Dynamo taking on some of the best in CONCACAF.

The CONCACAF Champions Cup is supposed to be the region's answer to the UEFA Champions League or the Copa Libertadores. However, with a true lack of sponsorship or reward, the CONCACAF Champions Cup has floundered in being recognized as THE regional club tournament.

I have some ideas on how ol' Jack Warner and his CONCACAF-Mafia cronies can fix their little tournament, from a competition standpoint. I will post them later today.
