I don’t have much to say today. I want to give you the usual place to talk about the Arsenal news and rumors of the day. So here it is.

I hope that last night with the NBA, WNBA, MLS, and MLB players deciding not to play is a watershed moment that helps bring real change.

To me, it seems almost disrespectful of their decision not to play to call attention to the bigger things that need fixing in society to turn around and write about sports the next day.

If anything massive happens for Arsenal today, we’ll cover it. But beyond that, I think today would be better spent thinking, really, truly, and deeply thinking about what is going on in our society. Thinking about what our role is in helping to make things better and what, specifically, we can do to help bring about meaningful change.

Our sports icons are leading. It’s time to follow them with action.

Black Lives Matter.
