MLS Insider A Must Watch Show!

Just wanted to share this great new series on NBC Sports Channel called MLS Insider by Emmy award winning Jonathan Hock. A series less about the highlights but the people and stories behind the game that make MLS such a compelling league to follow. The first episode aired this past Friday night and consisted of stories about NY Red Bull player Tim Cahill, the Philadelphia Union's supporter group Sons of Ben and former Columbus Crew and current LA Galaxy player Robbie Rogers coming out as the first openly gay athlete in american team sports. A must see show. Below is the full episode.

MLS Insider will air on Friday's at 7:30PM ET/4:30PM PT on the NBC Sports Network and at 2:00PM ET on the TSN networks in Canada.
 Produced by Hock Films , which is headed by Emmy Award-winning filmmaker Jonathan Hock. Hock, who has won eight Emmy Awards and made three critically acclaimed documentaries for ESPN's Films' 30 for 30 series, says that MLS Insider is not going to be your typical weekly sports show.
 "The depth of passion within MLS culture is unlike anything else in America and Canada," he said. "We aim to immerse the viewer in very human stories – the good, the bad, the heroes, the villains – the whole range. Don’t expect a highlight show.”

Here is more from Houk in an interview with MLS.
