Absolutely packed show this week, so buckle in and enjoy the ride. We break down what went right, what went wrong and the ongoing frustration over player availability in the Seattle Sounders' 2-2 tie with the Philadelphia Union. That probably could have filled an hour-long show on its own.
But this is a crazy week and we'd hate to leave it there. We also welcomed Alliance Council president Paul Cox (@BlueEyedBuddha) onto the show to discuss the somewhat controversial decision to give all 750 tickets to the Cascadia Cup game in Portland to supporters. Cox gives some insight into the decision and why various attempts to find a compromise failed.
There are a couple games this week, too. To help us get a handle on the one against Sporting Kansas City, we invited Thad Bell (@TheBackpost) onto the show. He explains that the KC fans now view the Sounders as their biggest rival. Apparently, we've got a bit of a reputation.
As always, we also take your questions. Lots of and lots of your questions.
