This week on 3rd Degree the Podcast, our usual host Peter Welpton was missing due to World Cup commitments.  So Buzz Carrick and Dan Crooke brought in a pinch hitter, please welcome FCD play-by-play broadcaster Owen Newkirk who steps into Peter's not-so-small hosting shoes.  As for FC Dallas, the club finally made some player contract moves, giving us plenty to talk about. So much so that we ended up with over 2 hours of recorded podcast before we even added the sponsors and music.   So the show has been cut in two. We hope you enjoy Part 1 of our DTID 2023 player moves show.3rd Degree the Podcast is brought to you by Soccer90.com. 20% Off Sitewide for All 3rd Degree Podcast listeners with Promo Code 3RDDEGREE on Soccer90.com.Music by Pappy Check!

Dan Crooke is on the lam - ok, just kidding, he's getting married - so Peter Welpton and Buzz Carrick are left to fend for themselves.  Plenty to talk about though: MLS Cup, Matt Hedges contract talks, the expansion draft lists, US World Cup Roster, DTID snubs/misses, and Buzz's Josh Sargent Gold Cup HSO payoff.  Would some of the FCD players sold in recent years - Reggie Cannon, Ricardo Pepi, even Bryan Reynolds - have been better off staying in MLS?
