There is never a dull moment in Whitecapsland and Thursday, August 21 was no exception when it was announced that the Whitecaps had indeed traded Nigel Reo-Coker to Chivas USA in exchange of former Seattle Designated Player and captain, Mauro Rosales.

Is this a good move for the Whitecaps? We discuss this topic at length on episode 43 along with the uninspired 0-0 performance against Chivas USA last weekend. We preview the LA Galaxy game for this Saturday and we obviously give our thoughts on the whole Omar Salgado "handshake-gate."
