Wild Card Frenzy

Is it possible that the star-studded New York Red Bulls are underdogs heading into the wild card round which kicks off Wednesday? Dax McCarty thinks so and he also delves into the troubles of his ex-club FC Dallas. Robert Warzycha gives the ETR crew the latest infirmary update as Columbus head to Colorado in the other wild card match. Finally, in analysis you won't get anywhere else, Ben Grossman, editor-in-chief of Broadcasting & Cable, discusses the impact on the American soccer TV landscape after Fox and Telemundo won the latest World Cup rights package.

Meet the ET team

Jason Saghini is a longtime MLS on-air personality and director of video for MLSsoccer.com. He previously worked in remote production on ESPN2's MLS and US national team broadcasts. His life's dream is to see Motley Crue play halftime of an MLS Cup. Simon Borg is a content producer and on-air analyst for MLSsoccer.com, and the regular creator of the "Kick Off" every weekday on MLSsoccer.com. He splits his time between his family and reading obscure Ukranian and Italian soccer reports at 4 am, and consequently has not slept for more than five consecutive hours since 2006.
Nick Firchau is the host of ExtraTime Radio and a new media editor at MLSsoccer.com. He previously covered the Chicago Fire for the Chicago Sun-Times. He often wonders why more professional athletes don't demand an "orange slices at halftime" clause in their contracts. Greg Lalas is the editor in chief of MLSsoccer.com and a co-founder of the Kicking & Screening Soccer Film Festival. He played for the Tampa Bay Mutiny (RIP) and the New England Revolution. Well, "played" is maybe being a little kind. But he did train a lot.

ET producer Dan Haiek works as a video editor for MLSsoccer.com. When he's not filming and editing interviews and behind-the-scenes looks at MLS, he likes to curl up with a Nicholas Sparks novel and a glass of chardonnay.
