League One Fun – Episode 64: Time to Argue

In this super sized episode Ira and Jason are back and bring the news about USL League One. Hey! That team somewhat close to Miami actually exists; new players; new coaches; and possibly new teams. Discuss one USL League One preseason action and which teams have made the most improvement in the¬†offseason. Most importantly, they rank and debate which tier¬†each team belongs in and why. It gets a little spicy…

Ira dropped an article about how promotion and relegation might occur if the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) ruled differently. See article here.
