Podcast (April 14, 2017) – What’s up internet? This week on Last Word SC Radio, Matt Pollard and Joe Hojnacki have a full Round Table on a bunch of topics. Let’s get to it.

Last Word SC Radio: Combined World Cup Bid, MLS TV Ratings, and Attendance

First Nic Hendrickson joins the desk to talk about the combined World Cup bid between the United States, Mexico, and Canada. The guys talk about the proposed structure. Nic gives his take on what it means for Canada and which venues could host in Canada. We discuss Mexico only getting 10 games and whether they have a right to more than just a quarter final match. The guys finish off talking scheduling, travel, and predicting where the final could be held.

In the next segment, Matt and Joe talk about MLS TV Ratings and Attendance. The guys talk about the numbers being a bit down and why they are. We discuss the World Cup and Copa America effect, and a crowded spring sports schedule.

In the Round Table, the guys try to fix the winless Philadelphia Union and Montreal Impact. We finish with a full Weekend Pick ‘Em.
