Enough LA-Centrism Already

I’ve been a long time listener to this podcast and enjoy the analysis and discussions of the “Beautiful Game” in all its forms around the world. I appreciate Alexi’s perspective, but too often his pompous and self-righteousness rubs me the wrong way. David Mosse’s insight and analysis of the game and business of soccer are outstanding and help me better understand what is happening because of his massive data bank of knowledge, especially when it comes to Brazil and South America. I would also appreciate Alexi admitting that he is a homer for anything LA as his MLS analysis is always through a LA centric lens. Still worth a listen.
