The announcement states that You Can Play will work with MLS’ existing anti-discrimination guidelines, as well as providing confidential counseling to players. MLS becomes the second professional league along with the NHL to work with You Can Play.

    Shhhhh
    Don’t tell Sheikh Mansour

      + 1

      This is a rather empty gesture, unless they’re giving their entire expansion fee from MCFC to the You Can Play project.

      What are you talking about? If the UAE is anything like its Persian Gulf neighbor, Iran, there are no gay people there. ;)

    • John McCain says:

      I know you were just joking, but in all seriousness, why should someone who doesn’t believe in that lifestyle have to give money to support it? I feel bad that they force it upon owners who might not agree with that lifestyle, including the Sheikh or any other Xtian one.

    Unfortunately, I’d have to agree with the exact sentiments already provided, as it reflected my immediate thought as well: empty gesture.
