Oh my, that is spectacular. Nearly spit out the morning coffee.
Diallo has been released from custody. The investigation is ongoing apparently. Seems to be more to this that the initial take.In all seriousness; this is horrific and should be a major international story. This is just fucking crazy. What in the world was Diallo thinking? She was out to dinner with Hamaraoui and other teammates and driving the car! Talk about big balls and a small brain move. Diallo's career and lifestyle are over. All about playing time.
The nincompoop can't be arrested because it was a women's match. What kind of BS is that?Sam Kerr - Legend
Holy shit... And she was given a yellow card for it?The nincompoop can't be arrested because it was a women's match. What kind of BS is that?
I had to triple check to make sure that the article wasn't from The Onion. Kerr getting a yellow would have been like Matt Chatham getting a 15 yard unsportsmanlike penalty in Super Bowl 38.Holy shit... And she was given a yellow card for it?
"Michele Kang set to gain control of Washington Spirit voting interests after wooing other investors"Y Michelle Kang has upped her offer to buy the Washington Spirit to $35m, assume all club liabilities, and close the deal by Dec 31. There’s rumors of other contenders who may float bids, but very hard to imagine Baldwin gets a better one than this.
Just reading this now. Some real Wall Street time maneuvering - convincing the newer small scale investors to convert their stakes into voting equity to force the issue. Good for her and good for the club."Michele Kang set to gain control of Washington Spirit voting interests after wooing other investors"
Kang, along with people who are "committed to aligning with Kang’s vision for the club", now reportedly control 52% of the club.
Just reading the details - this is huge. $22m in compensation to pay & current players, a $2m womens soccer development fund, an agreement for equal pay for competitive and friendly matches moving forward. Finalization contingent on agreeing to a new CBA, but seems like this clears a lot of ground for that. I expect the largest outstanding areas are around reporting & disciplining abusive behavior as well as support the NWSL.
