While most of the soccer world is caught up in the ongoing corruption scandal surrounding FIFA, MLS fans are readying for the league's championship this weekend. The Columbus Crew and Portland Timbers will square off Sunday in Ohio. Bill Littlefield and Only A Game analyst Charlie Pierce compare and contrast the MLS with FIFA.
