Welcome to the OGM Radio 2016 NWSL Preview Show, also known as The One In Which JJ and Rachael Talk for an Hour.
On the pre-recorded episode, JJ and Rachael discuss the upcoming NWSL season. The dynamic duo rate the winners/losers of the offseason roster overhauls, talk draft picks (why so many of them were signed and who will make an impact right away), analyze rosters (which team will deal best with Olympic absences), preview potential playoff matchups, and predict the league champion.
More of our NWSL preview coverage can be found here, including team-by-team previews.
