The SBI Show: Episode 195 (MLS Western Conference Preview, Award Predictions, and more)



With the MLS Players Union and league officials agreeing on a new CBA, and a strike being averted, it’s time to continue previewing the 2015 MLS season on the latest episode of The SBI Show.

Episode 195 of The SBI Show looked back at the CBA deal, which left fans excited, but many players unhappy with the deal eventually settled on. We discuss the gains earned by the players, and the risks included in the deal.

Co-host Garrett Cleverly and I also provide our Western Conference preview, as we both rank the teams in the West.

SBI senior writer Franco Panizo joins us as we all make our predictions for the 2015 season’s MLS awards and MLS Cup winner.

  1. Glad to hear my estimation of FCD this season falls in line with Ives’/SBI’s prediction. Good show guys, keep up the good work!

    I think you guys should add a category to your predictions: Homegrown of the year. Essentially just another MVP award but only Homegrown signings are eligible.
