It’s been a quiet week in Cascadia, but definitely not a relaxed one. With some of our teams getting a bye week last weekend, we’ve been feeling the calm before the storm as our teams enter the final weeks of the season.
In this edition of Radio Cascadia, we take a hard look at MLS’ proposed video replay rule, review our midweek fixtures and preview this weekend’s matches.

One down, two more to go. With Vancouver clinching a playoff spot in their 0-0 draw with FC Dallas, we discuss the implications of their Supporters Shield aspirations and their recent form. Switching focus to Seattle we dissect their 1-1 draw with the LA Galaxy. Finally we look back on Portland's 1-0 loss to SKC and wonder what went wrong for the Timbers.
It was a strange but exciting week here in Cascadia, with our 3 teams defying our crew's predictions. With some interesting talking points this week, our team tears into playoff standings, shield predictions, game reviews, and much more.
