What if I told you that, at the highest levels, #DCU have had conversations in recent years about some sort of a rebrand? Don't think it happens, but don't sleep on it, either...
I, for one, cannot wait for the Continental Tire SuperLigue™
@MLSist With the expansion teams incoming there are 16 MLS franchises now with some variation of FC. Is the league going to rebrand?
The Montreal Impact have one of the strongest brands in the league - classic colors, a name with actual, meaningful history and a decent (maybe a bit dated, but decent) badge. Incredibly stupid to cast that aside. Not surprised, though.
Lol very often people do not complain or report such incidents? Weird position to take when your own investigation found that the incidents were reported numerous times and those in power kept dismissing them. And even made a bet about who would sleep with the intern. https://t.co/53hjc9VZSP
I’ve loved reading about Maradona’s far-reaching influence and this, from Jeff, is great:
Have said it since the beginning: it’s a disgrace that we prioritize testing for professional athletes before regular testing for those on the frontlines of this virus.
RT @TheAthleticSCCR: "We’re not here to cancel Socker Slam ... we’re here to gawk at it through the museum glass, to stare at it and take it in, absorb it in all its misguided glory." @MLSist is the tour guide and Socker Slam is the exhibit we can't stop staring at. 👇 https://t.co/XrU1EfEpxc https://t.co/ooZC3hHfGz
Imagine, for a second, if January's #USMNT friendly against El Salvador was played at RFK Stadium. The place would (maybe literally) collapse. I still maintain that it's a total travesty the place didn't get a proper soccer send-off. No venue in the US is more worthy of it.
One more push for the absolute dumbest thing I've ever written. Take advantage of the promo in the story and get @TheAthletic for $1 a month for a year. $12. No gimmicks, just great journalism like.... well not like this. But I do some of that, too.
Again, Jon's CONCACAF newsletter is essential reading.
