A minor issue perhaps:
Regarding the US Open Cup - I am three seasons into a career with AC St Louis. During the first season I won promotion from the NASL - but was never entered into the US Open Cup
Each of my seasons in the MLS, however, I have been entered into the US Open Cup, but instead of my reserve squad being entered (like every other MLS Team) my first team is entered instead.
To make matter worse, the board expect me to win the competition each year, when there are much more pressing competitions to attend to during that portion of the season (latter stages of the North American Open Cup, Group stages of the Concacaf Champions League, the MLS Play-off push, etc)
is there a sort of trigger that keep bringing me into the USC? or am I stuck in it every year?
In addition, the AC St Louis First team participates in the 'Show Me Cup' every year, in lieu of the reserve side.
