Sorry to see him go. At least he brought us something in trade.

The bracket from here on:




Nobody expects RBL to get by Athletico Madrid, but it also clear that the upper half of the bracket seems to be much weaker than the bottom half. The bottom half has 3 juggernauts: Barca, Bayern, and Man City. The upper half has only 1, PSG, and they are hurting because M'Bappe has an ankle injury and might not play, or not play well.


FWIW, I would like to see RBL kick  Man City's grass in the final.

In Topic: MLS has tentative plan to continue 2020 season

Attendance has been going down in all sports for many years prior to Covid. The possibilities (not listed in any order) are high ticket prices, high parking fees, high price of concessions, great TVs for watching at home, able to watch on tablets or phones when out of the home, construction and traffic delays getting to and from the arena by car or public transportation, delays getting out of the parking lot, and worry about safety (drunken fans, crime, terrorism). Now put Covid into the mix, and it becomes very unlikely that things will turn around anytime soon.

RBA has the makings of becoming a tv studio without fans for multiple teams and sports. The days of fans going to games to be "part of the crowd" are gone. History. Finis. Even before Covid, attendance was falling all over sportsdom because of the terrorism issue.

With all due respect to the great BWP, Diego Rossi did 75%+ of the work. He stole the ball, he advanced the ball, he crossed the ball, and set up BWP. BWP did an excellent finish, but the fact is that we don't have anyone who can do what Diego Rossi did on that play.
