    Are the USWNT being unfairly criticized for their sportsmanship? Is it sexist?

    I still don’t have an issue with the celebrations, but comparing the Thailand women’s national team to World Cup squads stuffed with the highest level of pros is useless. Yes , you are correct, people don’t have the same reactions to a team that loses with well compensated European club pros...

    Are the USWNT being unfairly criticized for their sportsmanship? Is it sexist?

    I don’t know how this is even a remote possibility.

    2019 Raiders: Will the Carr get to Vegas?

    Antonio Brown was not arrested, and charges were not filed, but a physical altercation happened during the off-season between him and the mother of one of his kids. She alleged, and then recanted, that he shoved her during an argument. The police report and photos of her minor injury are online...

    The Championship 2018-19: More interesting than the Premier League

    Considering they finished in 5th, is there a reason to believe Villa will not be a one and done next season?

    WCQ 2022: Qualifiers for Qatar's Questionable Quagmire

    That’s too bad. I’ve been openly rooting for everything related to this tournament to be a clown show. Hopefully, the nations who voted for Infantino based on a bigger tournament will go rogue.

    Global Football Odds & Ends

    In news that doesn’t involve debating if naughty songs are being badly sung: Wolves fans have voted Joao Moutinho player of the year. Clearly a fan vote is not a scientific metric; but it’s still impressive for a guy who just completed his 15th senior level season (and is not an athletic...

    Poor New England! So Far From Boston, So Close to the Kraft Family: The Revolution 2019

    I recently had an interview in Southie and was surprised by the level of development near the Seaport; but I still remember the severe pushback Kraft received when he tried to move there. Would a soccer stadium be warmly received?

    Poor New England! So Far From Boston, So Close to the Kraft Family: The Revolution 2019

    We are in agreement. Without explicitly saying that, Jon has made it clear they want a friendly deal for it to happen.

    Poor New England! So Far From Boston, So Close to the Kraft Family: The Revolution 2019

    There is no way it’s just words. They aren’t interested in financing it themselves. They want a package deal from a city/state to “help” them make it happen; but he clearly has done due diligence on a stadium project. He wouldn’t name specific locations if he was just farting out nonsense...

    Poor New England! So Far From Boston, So Close to the Kraft Family: The Revolution 2019

    Jonathan Kraft has spoken about this repeatedly. A quick google search will give you quotes and details. I’m weird in that I believe people when they state something unprompted over and over again.

    Poor New England! So Far From Boston, So Close to the Kraft Family: The Revolution 2019

    joe: I feel like this is where the league being driven by franchises, and not clubs, porks the region. It doesn’t matter if Robert or Jonathan are running the Revs. The Kraft philosophy is clear. They were founder investors in a startup league. Stuck their necks out a bit to keep the league...
