Dbrieva ,

Needs to be streamlined

Quite enjoyable but way too long. Spend so much time over speculating and hyper scrutinizing every aspect of hypothetical scenarios and beating dead horses. Good amount of info that gets buried by the length of the show and rehashing of themes in too many episodes. If they can do the show in 45 minutes and edit out it will make it more cogent. This show epitomes MLS disconnect with the fans. For example the had a show to talk about race- the show is a bunch of white guys and that show was no different. Add to it their tired glib cavalier opinions and it becomes a show to listen to on occasion.

Ivan.Esca ,

So what’s the word?

What’s the word on Bobby Warshaw ? I thought you guys were going to do a segment.

Zuriel Casillas ,
