Seems like Andi Sullivan still is not quite at 100% yet, from the
#USWNT line-up notes, she "will not be available for tonight’s match against Korea Republic as she recovers from a minor knee injury."

#NWSL supporter survey is back at @TheAthletic. I expect you are all filled with thoughts about the league right now, so if you have 10-15 minutes, we're ready to hear them.
“I think there have been some issues around transparency,” says Marla Messing, in a very true sentence about the
I asked NWSL interim CEO Marla Messing whether the Washington Spirit have responded to the NWSL's investigation of them. They were given a 14-day window to do so. Looks like that's on hold for now:pic.twitter.com/0jS6thndiQ
The Cindy Cone-Marla Messing connection didn't come out of nowhere. In addition to Messing's role running the 1999 Women's World Cup, she is currently an executive producer on the upcoming Netflix movie about the 1999 USWNT team on which Cone played.https://www.socceramerica.com/publications/article/85635/99ers-story-headed-to-netflix.html …
Update on Spirit from Messing: “we have unilaterally extended” the 14 day deadline for the team to respond to the investigation/violation based on Baldwin’s intent to sell.
Cindy Parlow Cone was the link between Messing and the
#NWSL executive committee for the role.
NWSL and NWSLPA investigation will be one investigation. Covington is coordinating with US Soccer. Messing says timelines are still TBD, maybe 3-6-9 months.
The fact that players courageously brought their concerns to the attention of NWSL leadership and received minimal support represents a shocking institutional failure.https://theathletic.com/2857633/2021/09/30/this-guy-has-a-pattern-amid-institutional-failure-former-nwsl-players-accuse-prominent-coach-of-sexual-coercion/ …
The abuse & harassment that women soccer players have been subjected to is appalling. I led my colleagues in urging the
@NWSL & @ussoccer to conduct a robust investigation into this systemic abuse, including by former NC Courage coach, Paul Riley.

Asked about biennial World Cup, Becky Sauerbrunn says FIFA’s goal of attracting more youth laudable, but ending racism, homophobia and misogyny is way to do it. “This sport supposed to be for everyone. If it wants to attract more youth, have to make it open for everyone”
New life goal is somehow getting on the
@OnlyMurdersHulu influencer list. What a finale.
