Hello Colorado Rapids fans and Happy New Year! On this, the first episode of Holding The High Line of 2021, Rabbi and Red discuss many things. The guys discuss the state of MLS CBA negotiations. We break down why there hasn’t been much Rapids news with January almost halfway over. Then we talk Rapids Legend Pablo Mastroeni joining Real Salt Lake as an assistant coach and whether Pids fans have a right to be angry about it. Lastly, we welcome Northern Colorado FC to the Centennial State and USL League One.
Holding The High Line: Northern Colorado FC
Matt speaks with Casey Katofsky, the Executive Director of Operations for Northern Colorado FC. He talks about the Future Legends Complex that the club will call home, how the plan for the club and the complex came to be, the stadium, and how Northern Colorado FC aims to represent the northern part of the state and USL League One. For more information, follow the club on Twitter and on their website.
