In the second part of this week’s episode, Edson Ochoa, Jacob Young, Rey Silva, and Cesar Cortez discuss the latest news out of the USL, including a The Athletic article by Jeff Reuter that informs about two proposals from the USL to the USLPA for a pay cut and for the modification of this year’s contracts due to the COVID-19 suspension.
The crew also discusses the impact of eSports in the USL with the USL eCup for both Rocket League and FIFA 20. Are league sanctioned eSports tournaments here to stay?
We also discuss the news that RGVFC Toros Academy is joining the new MLS Elite Youth Development League as one of the founding members and if this is a positive decision that will help improve the pipeline towards the first team.
