US Open Cup: Same old from Crew

Via Massive Report - when asked about the importance of the US Open Cup, Gregg Berhalter responded with; "that's a difficult question."

What's so difficult about it? Crew SC have drifted as far down the MLS table as any Hunt owned team at this point in the season, and are about to take on the Montreal Impact for the sixth time in the last 12 months.

Massive Report went on to say that Berhalter see's the Open Cup as time for "guys that don't  play much to see some minutes."

It's the same old, same old from Columbus Crew SC. Why not go for it? Why not field your best team? The approach makes it seem like MLS has some 45+ game deep, cup heavy cup schedule, that it totally does not have. Columbus has been off for weeks due to Copa America and there's only one friggin' domestic cup all year.

Go for it, Columbus. Winnings are almost as much as winning the MLS Cup - and you ain't winning that this year.

Columbus takes on Tampa Bay Rowdies tomorrow night on the campus of Ohio State. Check local listings.
