Nos Audietis, Episode 81: Talking Cascadia Cup TM with Alexi Lalas

Mike Stobe

Alexi Lalas and Travis Clark join us to discuss the Cascadia Cup trademark and the Sounders draft, respectively.

You're in for quite a treat today as we managed to actually record everything we intended to. Turns out, it was well worth it. We discuss Fredy Montero's loan being finalized, the opening of Sounders training camp and the many trialists and that's before we bring on our experts.

Top Drawer Soccer's Travis Clark (@travismclark) joins us to give us a bit of a lowdown on the Sounders' newest players. He was pretty impressed with their ability to essentially get two Top 10 talents by moving up to pick Eriq Zavaleta and signing DeAndre Yedlin to a Homegrown Player contract. He also had some good things to say about new left back Dylan Remick.

The real meat of the show, though, is when Alexi Lalas (@alexilalas) joins us to discuss the Cascadia Cup trademark dispute. He gives a bit more of a nuanced look at what the league may be trying to do and actually speaks a fair amount of sense, admitting that the league messed up about how they've gone about this entire thing. We don't necessarily agree with everything he had to say, but at least he speaks some sense.

Alexi also stuck around for our Q&A session with listeners. If you'd like to get your questions answered on a future show, follow us on Twitter (@NosAudietis).
