  1. Should have guessed Niki Budalic was a former employee of Beswick Sports. The tentacles they have with Orlando City are definitely solid. Kinda like what Wasserman has with a few other MLS teams. Sure makes it easier to get them to bring on or sign one of their players. Zero conflict of interest.
