On this week’s episode, the guys focus in on teams in the United States that have done a good job to embrace their environs and incorporate the communities in which they operate, and then take a slightly longer look at the teams that have done the opposite of that (looking strongly in your direction, DC United).

Why aren’t MLS teams better on that front, what have been some notable missteps, and why an organized supporters group can be so important in reflecting the values of individual cities? Paul and Sam have thoughts!
