    This week on 3rd Degree the Podcast, our usual host Peter Welpton was missing due to World Cup commitments.  So Buzz Carrick and Dan Crooke brought in a pinch hitter, please welcome FCD play-by-play broadcaster Owen Newkirk who steps into Peter's not-so-small hosting shoes. 
    As for FC Dallas, the club finally made some player contract moves, giving us plenty to talk about. So much so that we ended up with over 2 hours of recorded podcast before we even added the sponsors and music.  
    So the show has been cut in two. We hope you enjoy Part 1 of our DTID 2023 player moves show.3rd Degree the Podcast is brought to you by Soccer90.com. 20% Off Sitewide for All 3rd Degree Podcast listeners with Promo Code 3RDDEGREE on Soccer90.com.Music by Pappy Check!

    Dan Crooke is on the lam - ok, just kidding, he's getting married - so Peter Welpton and Buzz Carrick are left to fend for themselves.  Plenty to talk about though: MLS Cup, Matt Hedges contract talks, the expansion draft lists, US World Cup Roster, DTID snubs/misses, and Buzz's Josh Sargent Gold Cup HSO payoff.  Would some of the FCD players sold in recent years - Reggie Cannon, Ricardo Pepi, even Bryan Reynolds - have been better off staying in MLS? Let's discuss.3rd Degree the Podcast is brought to you by Soccer90.com. 20% Off Sitewide for All 3rd Degree Podcast listeners with Promo Code 3RDDEGREE on Soccer90.com.Music by Pappy Check!

    This week on 3rd Degree the Podcast, Peter Welpton is under the weather so Buzz Carrick and Dan Crooke are forced to carry on as a duo.  So no host with the most but still plenty to discuss. First, Dan and Buzz hand out FC Dallas season awards, then they discuss how the roster construction might change for 2023, and lastly it's a run through the FCD contract and buy options.  As an added bonus, Dan has a Huntsman Dump on Farfan's contract status.

This is the best podcast for FCD info

The Team of Buzz,Andy and Dan have lots of great information about FCDALLAS. I recently started listening to them again and will be a listening for a long time. If you want to know what’s going on with our Favorite Home team this is where to get the most info.
