Billionaires Vs. Millionaires: What The MLB Lockout Could Mean For Soccer

Eleven months ago, the wealthiest and most successful powers in European football broke away from their domestic leagues to form what was known as the European Super League. 

The league's motto was: "The best clubs. The best players. Every week." This meant no more away trips to Burnley for Manchester City or midweek Copa del Rey fixtures in obscure provincial towns for Barcelona. 

Every game would be under the lights at the Etihad or Camp Nou featuring the biggest names in the world.

El Bromance A Distancia Entre Chicharito Hernández Y André-Pierre Gignac

No juegan en el mismo equipo ni viven en el mismo país, pero la distancia no es obstáculo para que Javier Hernández y André-Pierre Gignac expresen mutua admiración.

El bromance estuvo en completa exhibición estos días, luego de que Gignac diera una extensa entrevista a Fox Sports. En ella, el delantero francés de Tigres habló de varios temas y desde el amor que siente por México rogó por el retorno de Chicharito al Tri.

From Kepa To Krul: A History Of Goalkeepers Subbed In For Penalty Kick Shootouts

Chelsea coach Thomas Tuchel's decision to bring on Kepa Arrizbalaga late in the 2022 EFL Cup Final was not unprecedented — both for Chelsea and the footballing world. Kepa had replaced Mendy in the waning moments of extra time in the UEFA Super Cup against Villarreal earlier in the year, saving two penalties in Chelsea's shootout victory.

In fact, the Spaniard is an above-average keeper in his career when it comes to saving penalties. 

U.S. Soccer Sells TV Rights To Turner Sports, HBO In 8-Year Deal

It’s hard to remember a time when ESPN and Fox didn’t dominate the U.S. soccer TV landscape.

That era is ending, though worry not, it won’t change too much.

No Team Will Ever Approach The Collection Of Bangers Portsmouth Scored In The Mid-2000s

Portsmouth's seven-year stay in the Premier League in the 2000s was marked by frequent relegation run-ins and one glorious 07-08 season that included an eighth-place finish in the Premier League and a victory in the FA Cup final.

These days, Pompey toils in the top quadrant of League One, with promotion to the EFL Championship almost as elusive as a return to the top flight.

Craving A Classic Title Race? Look No Further Than Serie A

In an era with historically-dominant clubs running away with their leagues every season, it becomes difficult to appreciate their supremacy because they have largely removed the drama from domestic title races.

In France, where the title race last season was one of the best in recent memory, Paris Saint-Germain has once again sat atop the table throughout the campaign.

Blackouts — Who Needs Them? The Blight Of TV Bureaucracy And Major League Money-Makers

Being a sports fan in the modern age is, at best, a chore and, at worst, almost like having a second job.

Fans must keep track of which leagues are offered on which streaming services as they balance cost with the value of the product being offered.

If an American soccer fan wants to watch the Premier League, Bundesliga and Champions League, they will need three separate streaming services costing a total of $170 per year.

Locally, viewers have to deal with a different type of headache: blackouts, which prevent people from watching their local sports teams.
