Description:

Dirty Tackle is part of the Panoply Pilot Project - where YOU help decide what shows get turned into series. Soccer takes itself too seriously. Everything from pre-match handshakes to the very name of the sport (soccer? football? futbol? calcio?) gets scrutinized and debated. We’re here to pop that balloon and give the beautiful game the podcast that it truly deserves: One that's childish, nonsensical, and occasionally funny. Hear weird news, comedy sketches, infighting, and merciless takedowns from the writers and editor of the award-winning blog DirtyTackle.net. From the pitch, to the stands, to the dregs of FIFA headquarters, no one escapes the boot. **Ever wonder how a podcast gets greenlit? Now YOU get to be of the process. Help us decide which pilots will become series! Cast your vote by subscribing at itunes.com/panoplypilots or you can vote at panoply.fm/panoplypilots. Dirty Tackle is part of the Panoply Pilot Project, where YOU help decide what gets turned into a series. Launching March 23.
