Filibuster podcast episode 123: D.C. United news roundup, previewing New York Red Bulls

On tap tonight: Hardywood Cream Ale, Evolution Lot Number 3, DC Brau The Citizen, Rinn Duin Pota Caifé Dry Irish-style Coffee Stout

The Filibuster crew is back yet again, and without a D.C. United game this weekend we talk about other news surrounding United and soccer in America. We talk about the labor peace agreement signed between the team and UNITE HERE Local 25, and what that might tell us about the stadium progress overall. We talk about Dave Kasper's extension and title enhancement, including dicussing a possible conspiracy theory about the title. We then talk about the USWNT's win in the Algarve Cup and the upcoming Gold Cup for the USMNT. Finally, we briefly talk about the four players that United might send down to the Richmond Kickers (but Ben misses an obvious one).

We then bring on Jason Iapicco from Once A Metro and the Red Bull Rant to preview this weekend's game against the New York/New Jersey MetroStars. We ask him what is going on with this brand new team, the revamped midfield with Sascha Kljestan and Felipe, the two new center backs, and the left wing situation and whether Jesse Marsch will change formation. We then have to talk about Red Bull as owners and the Mike Petke situation, and we end by asking how the Red Bulls will play against United and how United should play against them. Give it a listen!
