what you say is true ( though liverpool who was a favorite won, and france another candidate won) I just feel like the chances of randomness are higher in MLS becasuse....its MLS.so you saw Liverpool v Spurs happening in CL last year? or Croatia making the WC Final? the best teams don't always win, but sometimes they do. ATL won MLS cup last year and were only 1 point off the supporter's shield. does that make it a random win since they weren't officially the best team in the league?
I think the playoff/tournament system is a great way to add drama in a shorter timespan than league play. You would expect the best teams to win it, but things happen in shorter time spans and less games. That's what makes it exciting. If the world cup or champions league were played out like regular leagues were, there probably wouldn't be as much excitement about either of them as there is in their current form.
While the top leagues of the world are great to watch as a fan of the beautiful game, it gets a bit boring when you know the league will be won by the same 1 or 2 teams every year. At least the EPL has the big 6.. but even that's more like the big 2 these days.
