I was going to write about two serious topics today.
- The Activision-Blizzard employee walkout later today in response to the sexual harassment and gender-based discrimination lawsuit against the company filed by the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing and the company’s poor response in the media.
- Athlete mental health through the lens of Simone Biles withdrawing from the women’s all-around team event yesterday.
But I think they both deserve a more thoughtful and nuanced treatment than I was ready to do today, so I’m going to gather my thoughts and share them tomorrow. And perhaps the online discourse today will lead me to some brilliant insight. Be on the lookout for my thoughts tomorrow.
So instead, we’ll have an Arsenal discussion topic for the thread today. Which player, doesn’t have to be a young one, has the biggest improvement from last season to this one?
Oh! And thanks for the great discussion on the Ødegaard post yesterday. I love it when we get a good back and forth going with a bunch of you involved.
