Off The Bench Episode 100: "The Next Step of MLS" roundtable discussion with Garth Lagerwey (RSL), Brian Straus ( and Kyle Martino (NBC)

In this very special 100th episode of Off The Bench, Luke Lohr moderates a panel of experts discussing the Next Step of MLS or "MLS 3.0" and what it may entail. Joining us from all aspects of the professional game we have Real Salt Lake GM Garth Lagerwey, writer and league expert Brian Straus, Kyle Martino of NBC and of course our own Pedro Gomes. With representatives of management, print media and broadcasting on hand, Off The Bench explores the new direction of Major League Soccer.

To the Listeners,
It's been a fantastic journey to 100 episodes and MLSR has changed a great deal. Thanks to the readers and listeners here, I have a regular column with this year covering the MLS players on loan in the NASL and USLPRO. MLS On Loan has become a source of great pride and education for me in 2013. My great thanks goes out to my MLSR partner and podcast co-host Pedro Gomes who dedicates his time to discuss the beautiful game with me week in and week out. What a ride to 100 right? More great debates to come, I'm sure. Take care everybody. - Luke
