Let's Fix Football 119: USSF Brand-Diet Pills
Hosts Gabe Lezra and Evan Mateer break down the big USMNT news that Jonathan Gonzalez, the incredibly talented dual-citizen born in California to Mexican parents, chose to play for El Tri over the US Men's National Team. They break down the complicated decision, the pull between your two countries. They also discuss Gabe's "interview" of former USMNT player Alexi Lalas, and their back and forth about whether and how to pitch Gonzalez on staying with the USMNT.
Then they discuss Kyle Martino's unfortunate decision to go back to the USA-Costa Rica match well to attack SUM and Kathy Carter. What's the point of going to this match? Is there a political motive?
They finish up discussing FIFA's recent disclosures about their "improved" board member salary of $250,000/year for 3 meetings--and, most importantly, USSF's decision to hawk diet pills for $50 a pop to unsuspecting coaches.
