The du Nord Futbol Show Podcast Ep. 29

Episode 29 of the du Nord Futbol Show podcast is here.


In this episode Bruce and Wes go to Indianapolis for the MLS Superdraft and the NSCAA convention from which we gathered interviews with MLS commissioner Don Garber and ESPN TV commentator Taylor Twellman, plus lots of soccer news, and we (along with Greg Lalas of MLSsoccer.com) put together our dream soccer rock bands.


Bruce McGuire and co-host Wes Burdine are very handsome, so we hope you enjoy listening.

We also look forward to your questions and comments.

Sounds like US Soccer is considering the possibility of building a pyramid around clubs rather than leagues. The concept of the MLS seemed to be, let's build from the point up. Though better than from the point down - that's saved for the women's program - building around leagues has meant that there is no natural progression within US Soccer for players to move from youth to adult play.

What I wished I had heard was an understanding that saturating television with soccer games would build an audience. It doesn't have to be perfect. It doesn't have to be the highest level.

The right model for soccer is not the NFL. It's college football. People will watch East Carolina versus Arizona State at 2pm on Saturday because they follow the game. They don't have to be fans.

If all the Open Cup games are on TV, the problem isn't that they are opposite the MLS Game of the Week. The problem is that someone thinks the MLS Game of the Week is the right approach.

Keep up the podcasts. They're better than crack.
