[quote]No one is going to say it, but great run from Werner to pull Varane out of the way for Pulisic's goal. [/quote]He always looks great until it's time to actually put the ball in the net....

[quote]so your concern for the ESL is that it's policies may be bad for the ESL? that's not really swaying me[/quote] My concern is it would transform the top European competition from a merit based competition into a legacy based competition. [quote] they already do this, though so your arg...

[quote]2. what arguments against the Super League exist that don't also apply to the Champion's League?

[quote]UEFA is trying to maintain their own "closed system", so what's wrong with the Super League clubs investing in their own? It is a free market response. [/quote] Here, I don't disagree. I do, however, think it's bad for the game and for fans....

re: Super League may NOT actually be happening! - ohiovol
[quote]This is running parallel to the UCL, isn't it? And also is saying the teams will continue current league play. If this is purely a standalone league, then it shouldn't wreck anything related to club play, including current leagues. That doesn't sound horrific to me. It just sound...

[quote]FIFA and UEFA are governing bodies that let just about anyone join, and all members have some degree of say in the organization.

re: NCAA announces they will pull events from any state that bans trans athletes - ohiovol
[quote]The harm caused by trans athletes participating is way overblown. I mean do you think some dude will change his sex so he can dominate in tennis, golf, track, swimming, and soccer?
