Seattle lost again. Seattle didn't score a goal again. But at long last, help is coming. We're back to break down yet another loss while attempting to restore our hopes with the impending return of Brad Evans, Clint Dempsey and Obafemi Martins ... hopefully.

We're joined by Ted Philipakos, a sports marketing professor at NYU, to talk about his article on American Soccer Now about MLS joining up with DraftKings. We talk about the potential impact of the deal and the arrival of a gambling association with American soccer.
