James Sharman, Craig Forrest, Jimmy Brennan and Brendan Dunlop hit Friday's news with Wayne Rooney returning to Major League Soccer as the head coach of DC United, Cristiano Ronaldo rejecting a reported $300 million offer from a Saudi Arabian club, and the Canadian women's national team punching their ticket to the CONCACAF W Final versus the United States. Dan Wong is puzzled as to why no one thought CanWNT v USWNT would be a better draw on a Sunday night instead of Monday. But the bulk of Friday's episode was an insightful and eye opening conversation with Eva Havaris, the VP of Partnerships and Participation at Tennis Canada. The former Canadian Premier League executive peeled the curtain back on the conversations that are had in national sport body boardrooms, what mistakes she's seen over the years and has learned to avoid, and what Tennis Canada has done to build strong relationships and trust with their best, and most marketable, athletes. Y/ou'll learn a lot more from this episode than you usually do when listening to Footy Prime.
