PODCAST- What’s up internet? This week on Last Word SC Radio, Dan and Rachael discuss the Supporter’s Shield debacle, and the potential for points per game to be the deciding factor for who makes the postseason. Then, the return of our DEFCON Rankings. We take the bottom 6 teams in each conference as nobody is truly eliminated from the postseason, and give our DEFCON Ratings.
NOTE: The time of recording was Wednesday night. Due to technical difficulties, this was not uploaded until Saturday, 10/24.

Like the Galaxy, he too was handcrafted in LA.
