    They discuss how shortsighted it would be for the league to even flirt with not playing, give their opinions on playing some games outdoors to allow fans to come to the games & even a disagreement over the #ReverseRetro jerseys!

Rob Carlin is as essential to covering the Caps as Joe B and Craig. Thank you for this in depth podcast and I am also looking forward to a Alan May appearance in the future.
