Please Share.

NEW YORK, NY – Joining from very different places, Mike Friday, George Hook, Steve Lewis and Matt McCarthy offer thoughts/opinions on Bernard Laporte’s Club World Cup proposal and what Post-Pandemic Rugby will be like…



DALLAS, TX – From the sunshine and warm weather of The Lone Star State, Major League Rugby Commissioner George Killebrew joins Matt McCarthy in a chat that includes the league’s future, dealing with a pandemic, transitioning from working for Mark Cuban in the NBA to the MLR and the Virtual MLR call to action. There’s more, too, in this Week 134 (Sweet Jesus, we need a network deal!) segment of our show – like the Mavs losing to Shaq but beating LeBron in the NBA Finals and SMU’s Pony Express combo of Eric Dickerson and Craig James.



RUGBY TOWN, USA – With rumors and speculation flying around the rugby media stratosphere re the Colorado Raptors leaving Major League Rugby, the man in the center of it all is the colorful and entertaining “Rugby Mayor,” Mike Dunafon the-perceived-to-be-owner. Simply put, without Mike, there’d be no Raptors. See what he has to say about the Glendale, CO-based team leaving Infinity Park without professional rugby.
