NWSL Players Fought Hard For In-Season Vacation — They’re Vacationing Even Harder

When the NWSL players and league agreed to a landmark first-ever Collective Bargaining Agreement in February, most of the focus was on guaranteeing players a living wage, and for good reason.

Here’s Who Premier League Teams Would Be If They Raced In Formula One

Here in the good ol’ US of A, we’re in that terrible time of year where most sports are in the middle of their offseason.

What’s A Xogg? Pre-MLS Franchise Built With Briefcases Of Cash, The Mob And A Victoria’s Secret CEO

It all started with a throwaway line: "If anyone knows what a Xogg is, please get in contact with me," I wrote in an article about the best names of defunct American soccer teams back in April.
