The Vancouver Whitecaps drew nil all at home against D.C. United and dropped another two important points in the race to the MLS Playoffs.  Mark & Jorge break down the match against DC United, but they start out the show celebrating a win by the Canadian Men's National Team and then discuss Gary Kingston's controversial article in the Vancouver Sun in which he harshly criticized Darren Mattocks and Carl Robinson.

The guys also bring you up to date with all the action around MLS last weekend, and take a look at the current league standings, Supporter's Shield standings and the latest MLS Power Rankings.  There's even a quick update of Euro 2016 qualifying and Mark reveals who will be next week's special co-host.
