    Messi to MLS!

    Agreed. But you never know once MLS starts making special rules. View: I have a feeling we’re going to be hearing about some new roster / salary amendments that only apply to teams wearing pink.

    Messi to MLS!

    FIFA is expanding the Club World Cup in ‘25 and wants it to be a bigger deal. If I squint I could see Messi dragging Miami to qualification in ‘24 and making a run, and everybody paying attention to that (otherwise generally ignored) tournament. He won it with Barca of course.

    Messi to MLS!

    Sounds like he could be getting a cut of streaming revenue as a part of the deal. Pretty smart from both sides if true.

    Apple Vision Pro AR Headset

    I want "this", but not like this, if that makes sense. Much like the Apple watch, it will probably get significantly more interesting / worth it at version 3-4.

    Toucher and Rich

    I’m not in recovery but Fred didn’t sound like what I’d expect somebody who just went through that should sound. Hearing him at all, after hearing what happened this weekend and week, didn’t make me feel good. He may have to work for financial reasons but I kinda wish he wouldn’t. He sounds very...

    The Thunder Down Under: Women’s Soccer & the 2023 World Cup

    The “FC” in the wordmark is comically small. Round logo is pretty good. Like the name, though. Simple is good sometimes. They are making an entire identity out of 5 letters. I dig that.

    Pats lose 2 days of OTAs for violation of league policy

    It is interesting to think about how much correlation there is between team success in the NFL (winning Super Bowls) and percentage of players in any given season who just voluntarily want to do more than the contractually have to, or work on team stuff during their own time. Maybe that’s a real...

    Pats OTA Notes & Discussion

    I can’t believe we don’t yet have the tech to either grow real grass inside, or make an artificial or hybrid surface that’s exactly as good or better than grass for safety and feel. Are surfaces still improving? Going from neon green astroturf to FieldTurf was a big improvement, but that was 20...

    Toucher and Rich

    Just listened to Rich's update and reading between the lines, I'm a little surprised if Fred is really planning to be back on Friday. I hope he's prioritizing his mental health. Deleting socials is a positive sign I suppose.

    dirtynine's Digest - The Thread for Kits

    Hey thanks @candylandriots. It’s the dream for all the clubs like us, right? I’d definitely, hypothetically, pull for Palace in Europe (if only to tire them out for the PL, heh). And Union should keep you busy on the continent, right? Should be a fun one next year.

    USMNT: Soccer's Coming Home

    Could Hudson win himself into contention? Two stylish tourney victories would be a nice calling card.

    Toucher and Rich

    If somebody could have an intervention with Wallach re. his use of the word “Jesus” I’d supply the folding chairs

    A’s have signed a binding agreement to purchase land for a future ballpark in Las Vegas.

    The mutual proximity is nice, but the area is a wasteland of parking lots. It kinda sucks. The Sixers are trying to move into Center City and I hope they pull it off.
