Default MLS is Back ... Or is it? Tournament

The MLS went with the foolproof plan of returning to play in the shiny new Orlando City stadium, leveraging Disney and ESPN facilities to establish a bubble and make it happen.

The tournament is scheduled to kick-off tomorrow.

FC Dallas has already had to fully withdraw after 10 players and a coach tested COVID positive this week.

Toronto had their charter turn around twice already, opting to ride it out on the safe side of the border a while longer, and finally travelling to Orlando yesterday.

Now Nashville, already in the MLS "bubble" has 5 positive cases and 4 inconclusive tests.

Colorado previously delayed travel into the bubble after 2 positive tests.

Columbus previously had a case in the bubble as well.

Lucas Cavallini, Tossaint Ricketts, Freddy Montero, Georges Mukumbilwa and Andy Rose of the Vancouver Whitecaps have elected to stay in Canada and opt out of the tournament.

Don't forget their Fyre Festival themed menu:

Carlos Vela has also opted out. Not a big MLS fan but he must be the best player in the league.

Smart decision to hold the tournament in the worst possible place to do so. They will jam it through because it means money, but this is a disaster.

It didn't show in the version of the photo I posted, but that's a $65 USD meal.

"Alpine" Swiss Cheese hey? Guess that explains the ridiculous pricing.

Flowering up names of regular products really irritates me for some reason.

Is anyone else tuning into the chaos that is this tournament? The games are a mess but so much fun to watch (for the most part)

It's been awesome. 4-3 last night and so far today with Toronto and Montreal there is no defending.

A hat-trick for Akinola. That's 5 goals in the first two matches of the tournament.
Maybe Canada should lock him up soon? He can also play for Nigeria or the US.

These games have been pretty hilarious. Akinola looks like a completely different player compared to last time he got a look. Hopefully Herdman left him a voicemail.

All three Canadian teams advance to the round of 16. Whitecaps just pulled a third place finish out of their asses with their third string keeper starting and 9 other players missing.

TFC should be embarrassed by their display this evening. Didn’t show up and are getting worked. Bradley can’t complete a pass, he and Delgado got completely overrun in midfield

Bradley was the worst player on the pitch. Gonzalez was a statue at the back stuck in quicksand.

I thought when Osorio subbed in he was actually trying to help NYCFC. I couldn't come up with any other explanation for his play. I don't think he made one right move.

I don't think I've seen Bradley put in a worse game in TFC colours.
