Filibuster Podcast: Talking with players & Ben Olsen and judging the trialists

With less than three weeks to go before the season gets underway, the Filibuster gang got together to talk about the trialists in D.C. United preseason camp. We start the episode with audio from Bill Hamid, Michael Seaton, Nick DeLeon and Ben Olsen before turning our critical eyes to the likes of Marcos Sanchez, Joseph Nane, Jan Fredericksen and the like.

D.C. United aren't the only group gearing up for the 2013 MLS season: the Filibuster crew is building our fitness for a weekly schedule this year, too. This week, we bring in some audio from D.C. United's training stint in the Capital Area earlier this month, and we run the rule over the crop of trialists training with the Black-and-Red in Orlando.

We close out with a new segment: the LIGHTNING Round, where we quickly decide whether to offer each trialist a contract for the upcoming season. Play along with us in the comments - here's the list (I = requires international roster slot):

  • Marcos Sanchez (I)?
  • Shavar Thomas?
  • Walter Martinez (I)?
  • Kyle Porter (I)?
  • Ryan Richter?
  • Joseph Nane?
  • Matt Van Oekel?
  • Jan Frederiksen (I)?
  • Henry Kalungi (I)?
