On this week’s episode of Allocation Disorder, Paul and Sam break down the new, revolutionary Leagues Cup format that was announced earlier this week. Why is this MLS/Liga MX collaboration such a big deal? What does it mean for MLS in terms of television revenue? Will this tournament encourage MLS to relax its many roster building mechanisms? And is this Concacaf’s version of the European Super League?

After the Leagues Cup talk, Paul and Sam move on to a discussion of FC Dallas. Sam yells. It’s entertaining. You should listen to it.
