Podcast — Welcome back to another episode of the Pro Foul Podcast! This time, four voices, not just three! R.J., André and Rachael are joined by a special guest, Leigh Nieves, the president of the Lavender Legion.
Lavender Legion is the official supporters’ group of the newest NWSL club, Racing Louisville. She and André discuss how to properly pronounce “Rassing” or “Racing” Louisville, of course.
But then, they jump into conversation about the recent Expansion Draft. None of the trio’s mock drafts were a hundred percent accurate, but that shouldn’t shock anyone. Other topics include the U.S. women’s national team camp and roster, along with the Houston Dash and Dynamo’s latest re-brand.
