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.

.@JulieFoudy: Kate Markgraf seems like a nice person. However, wanting to hire a woman = "no men need apply." She'd reject a better candidate if they're the wrong gender.

.@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.

.@juliefoudy: over past month, ESPN has showed more *cornhole* than soccer on network in the day/evening. More soccer on TV helps fans, announcers, teams, leagues, etc. Please subtly suggest that those not affiliated with ESPN speak out against what they're doing.

.@JulieFoudy: there are no less than 4 kneeball games on right now, 3 on network, 1 on #ESPN. #ESPNNews has a yak show & #ESPN2 has... tennis. Please urge The Mouse to provide a real alternative to kneeball. USFL/NWSL would be a real alternative & make The Mouse more cheese.

.@juliefoudy: would you base #USWNT / #USMNT pay parity on all the empty seats at the #ICC Championship? It's be smarter to work Trump's emotional issues - as NK/RU do - to get govt funding. His need for adulation might exceed not alienating Coulter-style mouthbreathers.

.@juliefoudy: millions are sick of the NFL. #ESPN could present a real alternative to millions by showing foreign soccer and Caribbean baseball this Fall/Winter. Not only that, they'd make more money. Please urge ESPN suits to do that.

.@juliefoudy: Murdoch took #WorldCup from #ESPN for 2.5% of their annual rights budget. If/when Fox hides key games on FS1, that will be horrible for USA soccer by marginalizing it. OTOH, if Fox keeps it on network that'll be beyond what Disney would have done.

.@JulieFoudy: Packers are owned by the fans. #LAFC is owned by parasites, #LAGalaxy by AEG, other teams by oligarchs, sheikhs, etc. etc. Maybe you should look into if Magic Johnson's LAFC ownership stake is like his Dodgers stake (i.e., Michael Milken).

.@juliefoudy: plus, #soccer is considered "other", esp by yahoos. It has to become a regular American sport. Practical example: discredit Coulter over her smears. Take advantage of disgust at #kneeball. Hype players, rivalries, etc. #USWNT
