    Nobody on TFC got sick, that's a "win" in my book. Exiting now and getting out of that disaster that is the US COVID-19 crisis is what any sane person would want.

    I've tried to get into this tournament, and just can't.

    So much more important issues in the world right now, plus I hate players being potentially put at risk.

    You get a gold star the year after you win the MLS Cup. After that it turns into a silver star.

    Couldn't agree more.

    Even mild cases of COVID-19 can result in permanent lung damage. For a soccer player that probably means "career over." How would we feel if Osorio could never play again at...

    They've said that they will be in touch "shortly" a few weeks ago. No word since then.

    This is a key point.

    I think that they did their plans expecting that the disease would die down over summer (which it has somewhat in Canada).
