...a phrase used by equalizer podcasters (maybe others are using it as well). (https://equalizersoccer.com/2019/01/07/the-equalizer-podcast-episode-41-the-draft-approaches/) they seem to suggest that a davidson approach to ussoccer led to them inventing this new eligibility rule. the league didn't necessarily want it. there is indeed a lot of money to leave on the table (allocation $$, world cup $$, victory or consolation tour $$) if she plays this year as an amateur. but is this a good thing?
