Hey guys! Been too long, I tell you. Apologize for the delay in release of this episode. We had some technical difficulties to overcome. Luckily, we didn’t lose the entire show which is what we first thought happened. And that’s a good thing because this week we were joined by Devon from 253 Defiance to talk about some pretty hefty subjects. First, we dig down into Tacoma Defiance, and the relationship the supporters group has with them. Then we tackle the complicated question of how we deal with Cristiano Ronaldo’s rape allegations while they’re still just allegations. And finally, we dig into some of the more controversial supports chants at games. It’s a rollercoaster of a ride, but we hope you enjoy.
