Saturday, the morning after

by Cindy Luis on August 29, 2015

Good morning. The reason the blog was closed last night despite some really good observations and discussions: I was unable to monitor it while writing the story for the print edition and some took advantage of the moderator’s absence to attack players and coaches using inappropriate language.
