Never noticed what the small print said. It’s wonderful.

[The Greatest Team You’ve Never Heard Of] has together missed out on 12 proms, 74 birthdays, 21 Thanksgivings, 989 boyfriends. And they don’t regret it. They know why they gave up those things. They know that game-changing slide tackles and goals and championships and having a second family and doing it all for each other are the rewards. They know to put team above all else. They are the greatest team you’ve never heard of.

I have non-breaking news for you: FIFA does not care what you think.

Over the years, FIFA has never seemed influenced by what is written or said in papers, articles, tweets, blogs, and on television about how it operates. And over the years, women’s soccer has not appeared to sit high on FIFA’s priority list….

FIFA certifies turf and puts the FIFA stamp of approval on it. So it appears that we have a messaging issue: How can FIFA put its stamp of approval on turf and then not allow it for World Cup games? To which I would argue, even FIFA states on its “FIFA Quality Programme” website that “turf is the best alternative to natural grass.” Alternative, not “better than grass.” In countries or places where an appropriate grass surface is not an option, then turf is indeed a great alternative. But that is only when grass does not or cannot grow.

More non-breaking news, folks: Canada can grow grass.
