Couple minor quibbles, but great DCU insight

The best DCU podcast around. Jason's weekly tactical breakdowns are a must for any DCU fans who want to learn more about the Xs and Os. They probably could stand to cut down on the off-topic banter and trim each episode by 20% accordingly. Also, Ben talks on a weekly basis about how every manager in MLS is awful without ever really backing up why he thinks so.

Best D.C. United/weekday tailgate show

These guys know United and always are drinking something interesting

Love the banter and analysis

If you like D.C. United, these guys are all there for it and keep their nose to the grindstone even during the busiest of weeks and ugliest of seasons for the club. Come for the coverage, and stay for the banter between a trio of friends with a deep commitment to the greatest club in the country (even if they can't even prove that outlandish claim to themselves some years).
