Rapids Podcast, Episode #208: Watts on LA trip | former player Borchers on retirement

In an extended Rapids Podcast, Richard Fleming and Conor McGahey consider the introduction of the Video Assistant Referee (VAR) system, which will be tested during the forthcoming Desert Diamond Cup in Tucson.

This week's guests include Rapids defender Jared Watts, who reflects on the preseason trip to LA and his offseason wedding. We also track down Nat Borchers, a native of Pueblo, Colorado who began his career with the Rapids in 2003 and announced his retirement last week, while Mike Jeffries - the head coach of Charlotte Independence, the Rapids' USL affiliate - discusses their hopes for 2017.
