How to Give Higher Seeded Playoff Teams a REAL Advantage

I'd like to see the MLS give a TRUE advantage to higher seeded teams. It would be very simple, give the higher seeded team a weighted away goal advantage. That way, they go for it in the first match, and have the advantage of goals scored away while their opponent does not. You don't have to change the format any other way and you give the higher seed an ACTUAL advantage for being better in the regular season. What do you all think? Sound like a good idea? NY would have won tonight if that was the case, which would have been fair since they were the best team in the regular season. Thoughts?

Alright guys, I don't believe I have to say this but, just in case, please do not submit anything racist, homophobic, sexist or otherwise not appropriate for even the younger Timbers fans.
