Filibuster podcast episode 111: D.C. United stadium, Fabian Espindola, MLS Expansion Draft

On tap: Blue Mountain Long winter's nap, bourbon and cider, Filibuster rye old fashioned old fashioned.

Adam is out with some sort of goat flu, and some Ben and Jason welcome Ryan back to the podcast and then things quickly spiral out of control. We first talk about the D.C. United stadium deal, which is on the agenda for Wednesday's City Council meeting. If it passes, it would be the most important thing to happen in D.C. United's history, so we talk about it for a bit.

When then move into a D.C. United news roundup, talking about Fabian Espindola's red card, United's options for while he is out, and the Concacaf Champions League overall. Then, over Jason's protests, we talk a little bit about the bad game that was the College Cup and Virginia's victory.

We then move into the MLS Expansion Draft and talk about the two players that D.C. United lost: LEWIS NEAL and Tommy McNamara. We talk about what we get for them, who we could have lost, how this compared to what we thought was going to happen, and other notable players taken by Orlando City SC and New York City FC. We also break in to talk about the newest Garth Lagerway news dropped by Twitter oracle Taylor Twellman.

Finally, we bust open the Twitterbox and talk about who could possibly vote against Chris Rolfe and what kind of player we want D.C. United to pursue with their GarberBucks. It's a wacky one so give it a listen!
