2022 MLS Kit grading thread below ⬇️
Atlanta United FC: A

The color, the pattern, the message. All absolutely incredible!

The fact that this jersey is 100% sustainable fabric and the team is helping the city plant trees? So so amazing. Well done 👏 #UniteAndConquer
Austin FC: B+

The color is phenomenal, especially for an away kit. However, it’s pretty plain beside the unique color. Also wish it was more green to fit their verde color scheme. #AustinFC

I'm seeing a lot of questions in @GameFlowxPG about the #RCTID and #RSL game, so I'll wade into the deep end here.

The @AnalysisEvolved xG model has this game 1.8 to 2.47 for RSL.

@FotMob has it 2.07 to 1.69 in favor of Portland.

The #WGCF model below is barely Portland.

Think of xG models like judges in a boxing match. One may score a shot one way and another a different way due to their own perspectives (both strengths and blind spots).

Usually they agree on the final winner, but often it's a split or majority decision.

2/
Although one judge may see a shot differently, in aggregate, good xG models will usually agree about a team over a season, and typically even over 5 to 10 games.

Models typically improve over time, if there is acknowledgment about their blind spots and how to improve them.

Hey hey.

Ho ho.

Dell Loy Hansen has to go.

(Repeat until @MLS ownership decides to remove this unacceptable racist from our league.)

I include #Crew96 ownership in this statement. If you don’t stand up in support of the most important issue of our time, why are you even here?
I mean this in the way that Arace wrote about it once. Maybe he wrote about it, maybe we were talking about it on the porch of Endeavor. I don’t know, doesn’t matter. Regardless...

🇺🇲 El deporte en #EEUU está atravesando horas convulsionadas después de otro caso de violencia racial. Los jugadores de Inter Miami y Atlanta United de la #MLS se acaban de unir a un paro histórico contra el racismo por parte de los y las jugadores/as de la NBA y la WNBA. Image
Acá el comunicado de la @MLS con un mensaje en repudio al asesinato #JacobBlake, otro caso de racismo y violencia policial.

Con el mensaje de #BlackLivesMatter en las remeras, ambos equipos y árbitros posaron juntos como forma de protesta, antes de abandonar el estadio.

Reforming Seattle’s Single Family Zoning: Three Truths:

Truth 1) We've outgrown the urban village strategy.
It has been a great success for locating 80% of the housing built over the last 20 years in proximity to transit, but we can't expect the same 6% of land to house the next generation of Seattleites--at least another 100,000 people by 2040. (Seattle Planning Commission)

2/
Urban villages are too small, too few, and the edges are highly contested because we’ve struck such a stark line between what is allowed inside or out. It is a equity issue now, and will get much worse. (image is of relative density across UV boundary street)

After enduring a lot of sugar induced hangovers, expensive bar tabs and Excel nightmares, I have now officially tried enough spiked seltzer’s to pair them with every MLS team. Obviously this is very important information and the thread will begin once the EmergeC kicks in...
Before beginning, I would like to note that these are simply my opinions and are not endorsements for any of these brands whatsoever. Anyone who find these pairings inaccurate or wants to complain can email me here: getovrurselfnerd@babywahwah.cry
Atlanta United- Oskar Blues Wild Basin Cucumber Peach: undeniable flavor and super refreshing by all measures. Easily one of the best out there. #UniteAndConquer

#TimbersFC 3-1 #Quakes74: The Best of All Possible Worlds, Emphasis on Possible

LINK: bit.ly/31TVtDY

Portland “lunged” into the playoffs – i.e., they grasped for the last vine as they fell. Eh, at least they did it with a little style. My notes. #PORvSJ #RCTID (1/4)
My big take-away:

“Dairon ‘Mr. October’ Asprilla, scored the goal that broke San Jose, and that, along with Mabiala’s night/goal and Blanco’s night/goal, is literally what the Portland Timbers need to get anywhere near a memorable season in 2019.” (2/4)
“They’re sound defensively, but I saw both players helping the attack today – Chara by stretching it vertically on the counter...Paredes by providing a late option here and a run to pull defenders there…they both put in outstanding, even defining games today” (3/4)
