FC Dallas Coach Contracts COVID-19

Avoiding COVID-19 in the United States of America has become impossible. This nation has disputed concepts that the coronavirus is deadly, refuting social distancing measures & increasing the number of confirmed infections. Conditions are about to become considerably worse with President Donald Trump refusing to maintain COVID-19 Test Kits. Lack of information throughout America has enforced outbreaks in Neighbourhoods, Businesses, and Sporting Associations.

FC Dallas from Major League Soccer is experiencing an outbreak of the novel coronavirus. This follows after dozens of footballers & team personnel arrived in Florida for the “MLS is Back Tournament”. Most didn’t obey social distancing measures enforced by the Centre of Disease Control & Prevention, instead of listening to local politicians that deemed their jurisdictions safe. Not having medical backgrounds have seen government personnel in Florida misinform athletes, prompting these outbreaks. FC Dallas now has ten footballers with COVID-19, their head coach, and multiple team personnel. It’s the most prominent outbreak in Major League Soccer. All those infected with the virus are receiving “Daily Follow-Up Coronavirus Tests”, which extends to all other personnel & players with FC Dallas. MLS Media Division noted that all players, coaches, and employed staff must receive testing immediately upon their arrival at ESPN’s Disney Sports Centre.

Isolation Standards are Concerning

Anyone found with the virus is sectioned to another part of the Disneyland Resort, where conditions are said to be unsatisfactory. Food & Living Conditions provided to FC Dallas athletes with COVID-19 has been reminiscent of Elementary Cafeterias. Considering these men maintain athletic bodies & have the worst virus seen in a century, nourishment on this level will force COVID-19 to create longstanding effects on these players.

Healthcare Providers issued to these unknown footballers have requested increased nourishment & liquid for their patients, with cries for assistance being denied. Similar reactions haven’t been seen with other teams in Major League Soccer. That’s because MLS Executives are disturbed that FC Dallas could so easily break their corporate requirements. Going against the boss often has detrimental effects, with MLS Executives merely asking for social distancing to be maintained.

Jurgen Klopp Talks Premier League Victory

The Head Coach of Liverpool FC has spoken about their recent victory over the Premier League Championship. Jurgen Klopp clarified that Liverpool obtaining championship status after three decades is unbelievable, marking an achievement that dozens of coaches have tried to accomplish & fail. This victory comes after Jurgen Klopp was able to coach Liverpool FC players into winning the Champions League in 2019. Obtaining the Premier League Championship one-year later shows the diversity of Jurgen Klopp’s skillsets.

Liverpool FC was granted their victory through priority points, with the exclusive outfit permitted to defeat them being Manchester City. After losing to Chelsea June 16th at 2-1, Manchester City lost their Premier League Championship Goals. The victory was awarded to Jurgen Klopp & his band of superstars. It wouldn’t take long for Sky Sports & EuroSports to contact the Head Coach of Liverpool FC, requesting his thoughts on the victory. Jurgen would clarify that becoming Champions is much more than ever imagined & that it’s unbelievable to sustain this goal with such an incredible club.

Jurgen Klopp’s Era of Liverpool FC obtained another accomplishment that’ll be hard for other outfits to overcome. It took thirty-one matches for Jurgen Klopp & Liverpool FC players to acquire Championship Victory, leading with 23 points overall outfits except for Manchester City. This achievement is one that’ll be remembered by Liverpool footballers for decades to come.

The Downfall

Not everything was positive about their victory. Obtaining this championship after three decades prompted thousands to celebrate at Liver Building & Anfield Stadium by the waterfront, with 30+ civilians being injured during hysterical celebrations. Three individuals are in serious condition & aren’t expected to survive. It’s also guaranteed that dozens to hundreds will contract COVID-19 from these unsanctioned celebrations, prompting another outbreak in the Liverpool region. Deaths will follow from these confirmed contractions & will surely deplete the positive feelings associated with victory for Jurgen Klopp.

The Head Coach, Players, and Team Personnel with Liverpool FC have condemned the actions of supporters. Disappointment towards these civilians extended towards local politicians & coronavirus activists. It should be mentioned that dozens of Liverpool citizens were arrested for their foolish & brutalized actions.

Iowa Coach Allows Baseballers to Kneel During National Anthem

Educational facilities in the United States of America have begun reopening, prompting their respective sports teams to resume operations. One state that permitted High School to open for students in Iowa, with it being announced that young adults from Theodore Roosevelt High School that hold positions on their baseball team kneeled during the national anthem. This effort was made in support of the Black Lives Matter Movement.

Iowa is a predominantly Caucasian state located in the Mid-West of America, which prompted some backlash against the Roosevelt Roughriders Baseball Team. It was initially announced via social media that players would kneel during their 1st match of the 2020 season, with them ignoring critics when the time came & stepping out of the dugout on June 18th. Players were seen linking their arms while kneeling, which references that the Black Lives Matter movement cannot be broken.

Players were questioned on how they thought about the decision to kneel. The Senior Outfield mentioned that they’re merely trying to show appreciation to the African American Community. Jayden Singleton clarified that their choice is about social justice, which should be provided to all races. Sentiments were ended by remarking that by kneeling together as a team, it’s more reliable than the occasional player kneeling at random.

The Reason for Kneeling

Colin Kaepernick was the 1st to protest police brutality & systemic racism in professional sports. Playing for the National Football League, the San Francisco 49ers Quarterback had knelt during the national anthem back in 2019. These actions saw a significant backlash against Kaepernick & the National Football League, which prompted internal punishments towards Colin. The effects of Colin Kaepernick prompted Donald Trump to demand the NFL eliminate all footballers that knelt during the anthem, calling it disrespectful to soldiers that have fallen for their country.

The NFL would ultimately change their mindset against kneeling in 2020 after the murdering of George Floyd. It’s not known how Major League Baseball will react to systemic racism in professional sports. Right now the primary concern for Rob Manfred & the Major League Baseball Players Association is maintaining a seasonal-play agreement.

Greg Vanney on MLS is Back Tournament

Soccer enthusiasts throughout North America were excited to learn on June 10th that MLS is returning by early July. Their return will be managed at the ESPN Sporting Centre at Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida. The announcement came after extensive delegations between MLS Corporate & Disney closed, with both reaching a formal agreement. This upcoming venue is named the “MLS is Back Tournament” and will comprise all 26 teams in this soccer league.

Six groups are being maintained for this specially formatted tournament, with the two highest-scoring outfits obtaining permittance into the playoff round. Whichever team holds a victory over this competition will receive $1.1 Million, while also maintaining an immediate placement into the next CONCACAF Champions League. It should be noted that all points acquired during this tournament are ported over to the regular season, which is slated to return weeks after the MLS is Back Tournament concludes.

Grey Vanney Discusses TFCs Position

It was first expressed that all members with the TFC are excited to compete again, with coaching stall being aware of the challenges that wait for them by July 8th. Greg Vanney clarified that the MLS is Back Tournament holds substantial value for the regular season, that this competition makes the best of a horrendous situation. The TFC Head Coach finished his sentiments by noting there isn’t any better way to start operations than competing against the Montreal Impact.

TFC Players are engaged in their training camp, with extensive drilled maintained for prolonged periods in comparison to standard preparation. This shows that coaching staff in Toronto & elsewhere throughout MLS are concerned about their delayed start to the season. Similar levels of training have been seen with all sporting leagues slated to resume this summer, with their athletes not being inactive for such a long period.

It should be mentioned that TFC was purposely selected into the highest-grade grouping in the MLS if Back Tournament. All their competitors were Semi-Finalists during the 2019 Season, with all four having previously acquired an MLS Championship.

Head Coach for Chicago Bulls in Hot Water

Alterations were recently made within the Chicago Bulls Corporate Division. It was determined that a new VP of Operations as required, allowing for modern mentalities & strategies to be enacted. This follows after their presence in the NBA has dwindled against other powers like the LA Lakers & Miami heat. It was expected that Arturas Karnisovas, the individual that was employed to take on the role of Operations VP, would alternate the coaching staff. No announcements regarding changes with Chicago Bulls Coaching Staff have been announced, with Arturas noting he’s not met with these team members. Interaction in-person isn’t possible amid the coronavirus pandemic.

It’s been asked what will happen with Jim Boylen, the Head Coach of the Chicago Bulls. Sporting analysts speculate that Arturas Karnisovas will determine his professional coaching career in basketball. Boylen losing his position will enact a downhill slope that’ll end at the level of College or High School coaching. It follows after the Chicago Bulls haven’t obtained a playoff position for five seasons. Considering the overwhelming dominance this organization had during the 1990s & 2000s, it’s suspected that new executives will want to reach that point again. This leaves Boylen’s position in an inconsistent stage that won’t be resolved until Arturas meets with Jim.

The Final Call

Arturas Karnisovas isn’t the exclusive individual permitted to make the final decision on Jim Boylen. Positioned as the Vice-President of Basketball Operations, Arturas Karnisovas must confirm all arrangements through the Chicago Bulls General Manager. Marc Eversley took on the position of General Manager two weeks after Arturas began his duties.

When questioned on what’s happening with Jim Boylen, the Vice-President of Basketball Operations noted they hadn’t engaged informal discussions. The main priority is hurdling over the COVID-19 financial struggles, with internal relationships being slowly created. Arturas mentioned that once confirmed infections are lowered throughout Chicago, he’ll meet with Jim Boylen & discuss the future. Arturas noted that he’s excited to form a relationship with the Head Coach, meaning that Boylen could reform his reputation within the National Basketball Association.

The Regrets of Gian Piero Gasperini

Gian Piero Gasperini is one of the few coaches in Italy to confirm he’s COVID-10 infection publicly. The Atalanta Head Coach contracted the virus in March 2020, where he revealed that the concept of recovering in Bergamo Hospital saw life-threatening fears overwhelm him. This followed after hundred of COVID-19 Patients were located in the hospital. Gian lives close to this medical centre, where he’d notice an ambulance passing by every two minutes. The Head Coach couldn’t help but reference the similarities to war, knowing full well the majority that went into Bergamo Hospital didn’t leave.

Atalanta’s Head Coach was luckier than those entering this medical facility. He recovered quickly at an elderly age, with the infection being kept secret from the assistant coaching staff and his players. It wouldn’t be revealed to these men until May 21st, which is when the entire Atalanta Team was tested for COVID-19. Nobody was confirmed infected with the virus, but all football units in Italy still aren’t being permitted to train. This falls under the expectation that a 2nd deadlier wave will infect Italy and Europe.

Gian Piero Gasperini acquired the novel coronavirus on February 19th, which was the date when Atalanta FC competed against Valencia. This football match will be removed in Italian History for the wrong reasons, with health experts revealing that this event is considered “Ground Zero” for the city of Bergamo. Thousand of civilians throughout the Lombardy Province contracted this virus because this match unfolded on the 19th. It’s suspected that 35% of infections throughout the European Union was prompted from this football game, where thousands attended unknowingly carrying the virus. The number of deaths that can originate from this event extends 16+ thousand.

Unconfirmed Infections

Few members in the Atalanta Football Club have confirmed their contracted infections. It’s almost impossible that Gian Piero Gasperini & Marco Sportiello were the two exclusive individuals that contracted COVID-19. This wouldn’t fall in line with the infection percentages seen throughout Italy. It should be noted that Italian’s haven’t blamed Atalanta for the increased infections, with these civilians knowing full well they’re at fault. It’s suspected that Atalanta Supporters will see their favourite football club return by Mid-June to July.

Auburn Tiger Head Coach Contracts COVID-19

An influential member in the North American Football Community has contracted the novel coronavirus in his elderly age. It was announced that Pat Dye tested positive for the virus after entering an unidentified Atlanta Hospital for routine kidney tests. Nobody expected the tests to reveal an infection of COVID-19 in the former Canadian College Football Linebacker. Both associations connected to Pat Dye have issued their well wishes, which include the Edmonton Eskimos and Auburn Tigers. A National Football League Agent confirmed the infection status of Pat Dye, with that individual being his son. He noted that reports are correct, and my father testing positive after entering the hospital for kidney-related issues, which have been present for a prolonged period. Pat Dye Junior then mentioned that his father is asymptomatic, with all those close to the 80-year-old now being quarantined for fourteen days.

Pat Dye Senior won’t be permitted to see his family until the asymptomatic conditions of COVID-19 are gone. This means a confirmed test showing negative status. It’s expected that this Atlanta Hospital will release Pat Dye Senior by May 25th, returning him to a private hotel. Pat Dye Junior finished his remarks by clarifying his thanks towards all those wishing his father a safe recovery.

Player Before Coach

Pat Dye Senior played with the Canadian Football League, operating under the Edmonton Eskimos. He’d become a notable player over two seasons because Pat would often be paired with Nat Dye, the older brother in the Dye Family. He’d stand at 210-Pounds at 5’11, giving Pat the perfect physique to maintain his position at Linebacker. The skillsets showcased by the Edmonton Eskimos Footballer would earn Pat Dye two back-to-back “All American” titles. This extends towards a single Orange Bowl, and SEC Championship. These relevant skillsets allowed for Pat Dye Senior to inevitably become the Auburn Tigers Head Coach, where he’d go to obtain four championships for this outfit.

The formidable power of Pat Dye allowed him to make four interceptions, 58-yard, two fumble-returns, two touchdowns, and five fumble recoveries. This occurred throughout thirty-two Canadian Football Matches. He’d leave his professional career hastily when the United States Army demanded Pat Dye Senior fulfil ROTC Obligations between 1963-64.

Greg Vanney on MLS Restart

The German Football League returned to operations earlier this week, with Bundesliga now garnering attention from all other soccer associations worldwide. One of those associations is Major League Soccer, who will review Bundesliga to determine if their restart plan can work for MLS. It should be noted this information follows after MLS Executives announced that Orlando is being considered as a potential site to host matches. If Bundesliga proves that their strategic plan works, MLS will more than likely move forward with the Orlando Plan.

There’ve been multiple coaches in Major League Soccer that’ve provided their insight into this situation. One such individual is Greg Vanney, who revealed that everybody is watching Bundesliga see what happens with their respective footballers. This doesn’t include team personnel and coaching staff, but also the players themselves. Everyone is growing anxious over the situation with terminated matches. Greg Vanney, the TFC Head Coach, suspects that players will begin responding emotionally if the competition isn’t brought back shortly.

Vanney than spoke about the protocols implemented by Bundesliga, with Greg noting it provides MLS something to assess and consider when restarting their respective season. There’s a considerable difference between the United States of America and Germany, with the USA experiencing an influx of confirmed infections and deaths. Even with there being more than 86+ thousand deaths in the United States, MLS plans to restart operations.

Relaunch Date

The TFC Head Coach highlighted that Major League Soccer has a vision for possible strategies. Vanney believes there’s light at the end of COVID-19s tunnel, with MLS being victorious and more popular than ever before. This vision includes hosting at games at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex in Disneyland. It’s rumoured that those matches will begin on June 1st, 2020.

The Toronto Football Club is preparing themselves for the upcoming season restart. Players are training at two separate facilities in the Toronto region, with specific restrictions implemented by MLS Corporate. Four players are permitted simultaneously to prepare, with those individuals having to distance themselves by ten feet. This controlled environment is what will allow TFC to be a formidable force with MLS resumes on June 1st.

Chicago Bulls Coach Getting Fired

Whenever sporting fans don’t support their latest coach, an influx of negative reviews follow and make it challenging for that leader in moving his respective team forward. This was once again proven with Jim Boylen, Head Coach for the Chicago Bulls. It was reported that the General Manager and Head of Basketball Operations have begun delegating with team personnel on Jim Boylen. The response obtained by Marc Eversley and Arturas Karnisovas hasn’t been overwhelmingly positive.

Mixed responses have forced the Reindorf Family to respond on this situation, with these individuals owning the Chicago Bulls. They’re onboard with retaining Boylen for the foreseeable future, with some of the players also wanting Jim to remain as their head coach. Their influence is minimal since giving decision authority to Arturas Karnisovas and Marc Eversley, possibly prompting the termination of Jim Boylen before the 2021 NBA Season.

Karnisovas Responds

The Head of Basketball Operations was questioned by the Chicago Sun, a local newspaper outlet that’s infamous throughout America. They requested by Arturas Karnisovas thinks of Jim Boylen and his future with the Chicago Bulls. Karnisovas noted that his initial impression of their Head Coach was positive, with him showing incredible faith behind the Chicago Bulls brand. Then Arturas remarked that a comprehensive evaluation would be implemented for all departments under the Chicago Bulls. Those found to be unnecessary with being repositioned or terminated, which could include Jim Boylen.

The National Basketball Association terminated seasonal operations on March 11th, which followed after the COVID-19 Pandemic broke through the American healthcare system. The NBA is expected to cancel the 2020 season entirely after COVID-19 cases in the USA exceed past 1+ million. Terminating all NBA Games for 2020 will force the Chicago Bulls and other teams to re-evaluate their workforce. It should be mentioned that the NBA Outfit hasn’t shied away from terminating loyalists, with Fred Hoiberg being fired after five years of service. Fred lost his position of Head Coach after not obtaining 5th place or higher in the standings. Jim Boylen hasn’t accomplished this goal either, causing the speculation for his potential termination.

Olympic Gymnastics Coach Suspended Indefinitely

Maggie Haney was secretly emotionally abusing her athletes with verbal slurs, with reports being released on April 29th indicating that this behaviour occurred for eight years. It’s prompted Olympic Committee to hold a formal hearing against Maggie Haney, with the panel of three judges determining that the Gymnastics coach engaged in aggressive behaviour with minors, which included ridiculing and teasing. The Committee expressed that their primary goal is to create a healthy and safe environment for athletes of any age.

Hearing regarding the behaviour of Maggie Haney began in February 2020, with the Olympic Committee making quick haste of their decision with the novel coronavirus pandemic looming worldwide. This hearing revealed that the abusive nature of Haney includes digital harassment, fat-shaming, and racial slurs. Multiple Olympic athletes that were once minors have penned letters to the Committee for eight years regarding this behaviour. It wasn’t until the notable Riley McCusker, who stands as a Gymnastics World Champion, wrote a letter on Haney’s demeanour between 2010 to 2016.

The Accusations Continue

Riley McCusker detailed this letter direct to Rhonda Faehn, the former Senior Vice President with the Olympic Women’s Program. McCusker clarified that twelve gymnasts under the control of Maggie Haney were verbally, emotionally, and once physically abused. Detailed accounted revealed that the now champion would be humiliated in front of peers, while also be shamed about her minimal weight. It’s prompt Maggie to force Riley into working out with a multitude of injuries.

The pain would become so severe that she’d wake up crying from her sleep, with the process regularly being repeated. Now that these accusations have been confirmed by the Olympic Committee, the decision to bar Maggie Haney for eight years from professional coaching. Lawyers with Haney tried to claim this barring to be illegal, which prompted the Olympic councillor also to be barred. It’s suspected that Maggie won’t ever be reinstated.

The Olympics Cancelled

Information regarding the illegal actions of Maggie Haney follows two-weeks after the Committee confirmed that the 2020 Tokyo Summer Olympics were postponed by twelve months. Governing organizers were forced to make this decision after the COVID-19 pandemic continues to brutalize the human population, infecting three million and killing hundreds of thousands globally.
