    Ep 295: Burnout is B******t

    Ep 295: Burnout is B******t

    The following episode is on the topic of burnout. Nick and I touch on whether burnout is a real thing, or yet another artifact of a particular culture where everything needs to be soft, where competition is a bad thing, and everyone deserves a trophy. “Burnout is b******t” is a phrase I’ve probably said a [...]

    Ep 294: On USL’s Proposal to Implement Promotion and Relegation

    Ep 294: On USL’s Proposal to Implement Promotion and Relegation

    Ep 291: A Brief Clip on Mentality

    The following is a micro episode on mentality. It’s just a five minute rant I went on with Nick during one of our recordings, a tangent really. I thought I would clip it and publish it since a few days ago the big story was about Weston McKennie. Weston reportedly broke rules and, consequently, Gregg [...]

    Ep 290: On Players “Playing Up”

    The following is an episode on players “playing up” in age. While it might seem this isn’t a new notion, and it’s simply a matter of whether the player is good enough, there is quite a bit to consider. Nick and I try to touch on some of those from personal experience. And by the [...]

Top notch

Able to relate to the discussions. I’ve witnessed some if their work in the past years and never seen anything like what they have achieved.
