We’re back watching meaningful soccer games again and you know what that means — controversial calls are once again costing Orlando City valuable points. Hey, everyone but Baldomero Toledo knows it was a handball (and he probably even knows it by now) but let’s take the point and move on because gaining a point from a position of two goals behind is not an easy thing to do. We’ve got a breakdown of the Lions vs. New York City FC on opening day, including some discussion of the starting XI and Nani’s debut.

Rookie defender Kamal Miller was a surprise starter to many and we asked him about his debut, the MLS SuperDraft experience, and more in our exclusive PawedCast interview. It turns out you found out who drafted Miller at the same time he found out.

We’ve also got some words to spend on the Orlando Pride’s player signings and the international players’ preseasons in their respective tournaments, including the disappointing SheBelieves Cup for the USWNT.

Finally, we dive into our mailbag questions. Plus we give you our key match-ups and sure-to-be-wrong score predictions (even though Dave was right this week) for OCSC at Chicago.
