What idiot didn’t give 5 stars?

Must have been someone who got mad after Independence beat their team bad and they just got petty. Well these guys have a good balance of Goose being ridiculously optimistic while Alex is more level headed bordering on pessimism at times. Very informative podcast about the Charlotte Independence!
