Dave and Carol talk about MLS

Ep 55: Flights of Fancy

This is more like it. Let’s have a show before the weekend rather than after for once. This week, Dave and Carol take a deep dive into NYCFC’s stadium situation. Also, they take a look at whether or not the league would ever get fed up with the team sharing a stadium with the Yankees, and allow them to move to a different city. Then, what do charter flights have to do with the league, and how could they be important in the next CBA negotiations? All this and more!

Here’s a look at why NYCFC fans expect more long-distance “home” games:

    Hahaha… this is the first episode I’m listening to! My podcast feed says that episode 46 is the oldest episode that is available. Which episodes do you suggest for getting a hang of how football works?

    • Dave Brouillette

      We haven’t done any really specific tutorials, but our early episodes are probably a lot more newcomer friendly because we were still explaining concepts to Carol as well. I might suggest Episode 1: Team of Theseus, Episode 9: What’s a Leicester? and Episode 13: Soccer 101. Is there anything in particular you want us to cover?
