    That's insane.

    It's mostly water weight. I remember weighing myself before and after a game a few years ago and it was around that for me. Eat dinner and have a drink and weight goes back to normal.

    It’s mostly dangerous to lose 10 pounds in two hours, on a repeated basis.

    In response to some of the comments that RSL's owner made this morning about the players' protesting, Jozy said he is involved in a group that is ready to purchase the team.

    Can Jozy own a team and be a roster player for another team in the same league? Seems like a conflict of interest.

    Doubt it. The only instances of player-owners I can recall are Mario Lemieux with the Pittsburgh Penguins and Michael Jordan with the Washington Wizards (also Wayne Gretzky was owner and head coach of the Phoenix Coyotes). All were the same team they owned. Could be one way to get out of his contract if he has to retire/be traded to Real Salt Lake. I love Jozy, but far too injury prone for an expensive DP.

    Bunch of RSL fans responding to Jozy's tweet, that they would be happy to get rid of that owner, happy to buy a share, etc. Of course also negative comments, but I would say this owner hasn't quite "read the room."

    Maybe they'll take him off our hands as DP??!!

    Reminder here that the biggest issue about this is RSL's owner is a racist plutocrat who spends money on his coin collection while threatening to lay off staf due to the strike last night.

    As Caldwell says, get him out of the game.




    And, an Athletic article out tonight with more (paywall)

    https://theathletic.com/2027796/2020...-as-rsl-owner/

    The stuff in that article should get Hansen fired as an owner.

    Yeah. That article should be the nail in the coffin for the racist scumbag.

    Steve replied to his tweet with this, not sure if this means from wherever the Reds may be based or Toronto. I do wonder if it is in and out does the Canadian government allow that. Land, go to the stadium, play the game and head straight back to the airport and fly out. There would not be many opportunities for exposure with that. Just a thought that crossed my mind. If you have confidence in luck turn around Covid testing it could work. The Pac 12 has signed a deal for rapid testing.

    IMO that would be a huge disadvantage for any visitor team.
    They would start the match tired plus without any kind of training/accomodation in/to that city, stadium, atmosphere.

    Everybody is not Seba, landing from another continent, going straight to the stadium, and becoming the man of the match.
    (At least it was his team's home stadium, lol...)

    Montero playing well again for Vancouver in the #10 role. I really feel MDS just got lucky here having rolled the dice so many times he eventually landed on a formula that works.

    Really liking Gutierrez. Defensive minded fullback can put in a good cross. I would make him the first choice left back if he commits to Canada.
