    Another great show. Puerto Rico/San Antonio is a great rivalry. PR did make a statement that they will not allow SA to take this title without a fight. For SA to beat PR we must bring our A game against these guys.

    The current day version of the Strikers/Rowdies rivalry still feels like it means a whole lot more to us up in the stands than it does to the players and coaches on the field. I think to a large degree that tends to happen in rivalries. But this one between Islanders and Scorpions seems to be growing from the opposite direction – intensity on the pitch! I challenge yankiboy’s Islander brethren to show the same kind of passion for their budding rivalry with the Scorpions as the Crocketeers and fans in SA are showing for it, the next chance they get to host the Scorps in Bayamon. This is exactly the kind of thing we need to help us grow our teams and league.

    As for my befuddled Strikers….all I can do is shake my head. Our defense continues to get gashed in front of Matt hanging him out to dry regularly. We allow other teams way too much possession, often failing to challenge at all until they get to our final third. And just when we thought, well ok, if we can’t stop ’em, maybe we can just plain outshoot them like we did the prior match at Lockhart….we lose Paulo Jr. who was already making a dynamic difference up front. Pretty darn short loan…thanks RSL…..

    Great podcast and I love the “inside” info on rivalries that are developing in the NASL. This only helps the league! I also like the comments on the USWNT. Great stuff!
