    If he feels that he can go, then let him play in this one and take a night off another week.

    McKenzie has played in a few games so far, and so far, the other team has scored nicely over his position. I wouldn't trust him in a nationaly televised game, trying to stay with Houston in the western conf race. Give Olave the break on the road against Chivas so he is rested for the LA and San Jose home games.

    Olave should play. Yes, he made some mistakes in Houston, but he's been the difference in more games positively than negatively.

    therush - why are playoffs a joke. Are you telling me if the English Premier League was starting an 8 team playoff next week you wouldn't watch it? It would be huge. Playoffs are fun to watch. Now you can argue which is more impressive a regular season champion or a playoff champion, but you can't argue that playoffs arn't exciting.

    Absolutely Olave should play at least some of the game if not all. Olave gets under Ching's skind just as much as Ching gets under Olave's. That is a huge part about what makes RSL vs. Houston fun to watch. To not play Olave because of questionable calls in the past would be capricious. Give the fans and everybody watching on ESPN2 a good show. Olave is possibly the most intimidating defender in the MLS.

    Doesn't matter. MLS is a joke because it has playoffs. As RSL proved last year you don't need to be consistent to win the title.

    Well Olave magically gets a red card every time he plays against houston.. just saying

    I agree Olave needs to play if he is healthy. He is a rock back there. Houston doesn't have any magical power over Olave.

    This will be a tough match and RSL needs to field its best Eleven. If Jason wanted to give Olave a rest it should have been last week against the weaker team from Philidelphia. Houston will be tough and 3 points are critical play Olave and let the chips fall where they will.

    I think so. He usually only gets red cards in houston. Keep a cool head Jamison no stupid tackles
