Espn, League, Reporter discussed on Afternoons with Marcellus & Kelvin
The rate of players that have been infected is still very low, so really only had only put. Teams affected dollars. Nashville and Columbus has on player who tested positive Everybody else has been released from that quarantine so I. Mean, that's the plan. The plan is simple, but you're going to have to see what car there might be a lot of their postponed. It's not gonNA look just like the schedule the schedule it was first released the tournaments, not that way Stephan of. Covering the MLS bubble is the only reporter there for ESPN. Joining us year as we kind of try to gleam off what is going to happen with some of these other sports getting started as the MLS will be the first major American team sport to try to get off the ground, so my guess is the schedule right? The the Games that will be postponed will still be played, but they'll have to be pushed back in a different order. I would presume in this particular mls tournament. That the plan. But I could tell you that everything's really fluid right now, There might be some games that there might be some games that won't be played. It's it's a possibility for Sir Right, but the plan is to play them at a later date before the group stage, and even if that means pushing the tournament back pushing the final back a few days, the plan is to get all the games. Possible throughout the group stage but I wouldn't be shocked if there are some games that they don't have just It definitely. Because the possibility. Let me. Ask You about on the Field Carlos Vela has chosen not to play. Obviously, you're talking about an MVP type player in this sport. What does that mean first of all? What is the been the reaction to not playing? And what does that mean for AFC on the field? What would it be really see on the field? There's I mean you're missing your best player. You Miss Your best player best player in the League. That goal scored by. so it's going to affect them without a doubt. We murder player saying I mean I think it was Kinda the worst kept secret I mean. He's expected to child He wasn't comfortable with this whole situation to begin with and what I'm told through my reporting. Is that suit as these harasser? Positive tests with FC Dallas and Columbus came out that was kind of his nail in the comfort, if you to say no I'm. Not GonNa play at, and you gotta respect that right I mean you have to give players in other leagues that are coming back. That are choosing not play and opt out opting out of their return for reasons that you really can't that. You can't really blame them right I mean it's thought about safety for their own family and have to respect that and players in the league. They understand it. they they. There are plenty of players that are here that have contemplated leaving I I spoke to a few that. Have this Zayed's going that. They really don't know what's GonNa. Happen so You know Kinda of see.
