On Headline Sports with London:

#1 There are three leagues playing in the bubble called Disney World the WNBA, the NBA and MLS. MLS rushed to be the first league to start play as they opened on Thursday night with Philadelphia and Chicago with Covid cases spiking and Florida being a hot bed how much of a big mistake could this be asking the players to play during a huge epidemic like this?

#2 More than 170 Black players from different MLS teams marched around the stadium at Kissimmee Florida wearing masks and messages about race. The coalition Black Players for Change the players raised their fists for eight minutes and 46 seconds the same time that a Minneapolis cop had his knee on George Floyd.

#3 Justin Morrow of FC Toronto said that the players are standing with players in the European Soccer League as well who face discrimination as well.

#4 There will be no season for FC Dallas as six players who arrived in Orlando tested positive. FC Dallas arrived in Orlando on June 27th and are now quarantining in their hotel rooms. Nashville FC also had ten players who came down with Corona and have to withdraw. Which again raises the issue of how risky is it to play during a huge outbreak in a state that is simply out of control?

#5 London talk about the opener tonight as the San Jose Earthquakes and Seattle Sounders battle. Will Chris Wondolowski have another great season as he leads the Quakes in the opener.
