The women’s team’s sports manager Markel Zubizarreta spoke about their recruitment strategy on the sports congress back in November at Camp Nou. They just don’t sign big players cause they can. Many clubs could learn from Barcelona’s recruitment strategy…
Coming back to this again “When we sign a player, male or female, we look at the player & how they can fit in our system. There are a lot of players, male & female, that are very good, but sometimes, the scouting team says she or he is not for our system.” goal.com/en-bh/news/nobody-k…

It's really hard to watch Hawaiians conduct a big ceremony for the codification of mahina 'Ōlelo Hawai'i, allowing @MayorRickHNL to talk about how much he values 'ōlelo, while the same man is lobbying to keep poor Native Hawaiians locked up through the cash bail system.

After reading the Inspector General's Inmate Welfare fund (IWF) presentation, I wanted to understand: 1) Why incarcerated people are charged $5.33 for a bag of Cheetos, and 2) How LASD controls this profit in the name of "inmate welfare."

Sure would be nice if Nike who supplies the jerseys (and will until 2030!) gets off their ass & invests in more expansive size runs. NWSL teams can, must, and have partnered with other manufacturers to create fan apparel who accommodate the size runs that Nike won't.
"I've been offered men's shirts, unisex shirts, and it's not okay. This is a women's team, and we deserve gear that fits our bodies and makes us feel good about ourselves." #AngelCityFC fan Nina Kiefer calls for more equality in merchandising after her experience with Nike.
