COVID-19 Response

Like everyone else, we urge you to wash your hands and engage in social distancing.

Unlike everyone else, we urge you to also help with this smart plan to get more tests, ventilators, and PPE. Everyone can do that plan right now, at home, in just 15 minutes.

If enough people help with the plan we can save lives. Take time out now and help get more desperately-needed supplies.

.@adrianhealey: just like MLB, #MLS greatly harms the sport they're a caretaker of by cutting bad TV deals that hide their sport from 10s of millions. That impacts you: fewer games to call. It impacts players: lower salaries. It harms fans. Subtly get others to speak out.

.@JulieFoudy: I'll solve the problem: U.S. athletes who compete in int'l competitions should be subsidized by the U.S. on a sliding scale (based on total income incl endorsements, etc.) U.S. can pressure FIFA to turn over more, but until they do we make it up. Problems solved.

.@JulieFoudy: even though we're talking a tiny fraction of USA budget, there would be resistance. Players would beg, got emotional, etc & in general treat pols like parents rather than peers. So, the solution to that problem is logic & Socratic questioning rather than kids stuff.

.@AdrianHealey: what sort of mental block kept #ESPN from outbidding Murdoch? I'm picturing a Top 40 programmer-style mental block plus like if Jimmy Wichard was a TV exec. It'd be smart of ESPN to take some matches off Fox' hands or simulcasts: win-win. Why don't you urge that?
