Big D Daily: News for Friday, December 17, 2021

Today marks another draft day in the MLS offseason calendar.

MLS: Los Angeles FC at FC Dallas Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

The end of another offseason week is here and wildly enough we’re only a little over a week out from Christmas.

I do want to take this time to point out that this will be the final link post of the 2021 year. I’ll be taking the next two weeks off for a much-needed holiday trip. I’ll still post any FC Dallas-related news that pops up within the next two weeks, but this morning post just won’t be doable while I’m away thanks to a large timezone difference. So I do wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Now for today’s links.
