Hosts Gabe Lezra and Evan Mateer discuss the USSF election conflict of interest issues surrounding Eric Wynalda and Kathy Carter, and some of the legal issues involved. How similar is the USSF to a normal corporation, and do they have to abide by the general rules of corporate law? 

They have a number of funny examples of badly behaved fans for the week's worst take, and they finish up with a discussion of Financial Fair Play.

They conduct a rundown of UEFA's Financial Fair Play regulations effect on differing club revenue models, using five separate teams with different balance sheets as examples--including Real Madrid, PSG (using Gabe's article about PSG's FFP gamesmanship as a source), AC Milan (using Liz's article on Milan as a source), Tottenham Hotspur, and Aston Villa.
