I may have missed this, but do we know that a decision will be rendered today? Maybe it's just the meeting.

“Luke met with the United States Consulate in London earlier today and the outcome was positive, as he took a step forward in his visa approval process to return to the country. There are still issues to be addressed. However, we are hopeful and quietly confident that Luke will be able to join the club soon. Because his case is still pending, we cannot elaborate any further.”

According to the article it either happens or doesn't happen today, then it's case closed.

Sounds like they just want to make him jump through a shit ton of hoops to make it clear to Luke that they mean business and don't appreciate people not following the rules strictly.

I suspect Luke will be back with the team within a couple weeks, prob by the home opener.

Sounds like they approved it, pending receipt of some documentation or proof of something.

Agree. This sounds like very good news. And it does sound like they approved it but is based on something that needs to be provided. Only problem with that is it'll probably be a couple more weeks.

Hope he just stays in shape and we get to see a decent amount of FrankenCooper in the meantime.

Sounds like they disapproved it, and Redbulls front office is hoping for last minute call from the governor.
