Something tells me this league is now going to get a boost in ratings. Anyone know anything about it? How to follow? Do we have any non-suspended players?

A lot of esports events have been cancelled as well. Sure many players are still playing and qualifying but any of the events where they play in front of an audience or at an event have been cancelled or will probably be.

I hope MLS has an audio sensor and does a time delay to avoid a NASCAR situation!

Re

Honestly, I would have been very excited if Chris won. But since he lost instead of feeling sad or disappointed, I really couldn't care less.
I tried to watch it.....i did. But the only Association to us was the shirt the guy holding a controller was wearing. Was he even using our players?

The one they did at the start of the pandemic was more watchable because our players were involved as well.
