Former Kansas City Wizards defender Nick Garcia joins Andy to shed some light on the MLS Collective Bargaining Agreement and the work that goes into one of these deals. From his time as the Wizards' Players Association representative, to the salaries, per diems and relocation expenses that players received in the early 2000s, to his advice for today's players negotiating a new CBA, Nick peels back the curtain on a side of MLS that we know so very little about.

Dan Karell (@DanielKarell) is one of Andy's colleagues at NBC Sports' ProSoccerTalk, but more importantly he is someone who has actually seen new Sporting KC midfielder Gadi Kinda play. Dan is full of insight on what kind of player Kinda is, how well he fits Peter Vermes' mold for his ideal midfielder, Kinda's rapid rise over the last 12 months, where he ranks in the pecking order for the Israeli national team, and which other clubs had recently been interested in Kinda.
