Last Word SC Radio: FC Dallas Rolling And 2016 MLS Expansion Draft Rules Announced

Matt Pollard and Sean talk about FC Dallas winning the 2016 Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup. Sean gives his take on the current state of Dallas. He gives his take on Carlos Ruiz signing with the club and how Walker Zimmerman and Matt Hedges have developed a relationship. The guys also talk about how Dallas will navigate their congested schedule with CONCACAF Champions League group games left.

In the Round Table, Joe Hojnacki jumps in after bowling to talk about the 2016 MLS Expansion Draft rules getting announced. The guys spitball on a few players who might be available and talk about how Atlanta United FC and Minnesota United FC could strategist what types of players to pick. The lads then answer the question: Who scores first this season, Carlos Ruiz or Landon Donovan? Lastly, the boys do some weekend predictions.
