ExtraTime Radio: Colorado Rapids president Tim Hinchey discusses Oscar Pareja's exit to Dallas

A Mountain To Climb

The saga of Oscar Pareja has finally come to an end, but what does it all mean for the team he's leaving behind? The guys welcome Colorado Rapids president Tim Hinchey to talk about why he thinks Pareja left for FC Dallas, if the club was a victim of tampering and when he expects to announce a new head coach.

There's also plenty of talk about New York City FC and "The City Way" at the club's recent press conference, what the official unveiling of Michael Bradley means for MLS  - and if Jermain Defoe is actually the bigger international signing - and if Michael Parkhurst can land in the World Cup after retuning to MLS. Simon also files his annual MLS quiz with prospective players at the Combine in Florida, with some sobering answers from the league's future stars.
