Hey all! We’re back! Perhaps, slightly delayed, but hey, and eclipse certainly demands it’s own time. This week Dave and Carol dive into VAR, and whether or not Kaka’s red card was deserved. Then we take a look at some recent attempts to get MLS to adopt promotion and relegation. Finally, Pablo Mastreoni was fired by the Rapids. Was it the right move, and who’s next on the hot seat? All this and more on this week’s episode!
