In an offseason that’s been full of turmoil for our club, the first sign of good news emerged Monday: Cosmos B will field a team this Summer.
Cosmos B play in the NPSL, the 4th Tier of US Soccer, and have served as the reserve team for the club since 2015. While the NASL is locked up in legal purgatory and has chosen to forgo a Spring season in favor of an August to June one, the B team will serve as the most senior squad in the meantime.
Let’s be perfectly blunt. Soccer Every Sport has a serious toxic masculinity and homophobia problem. This isn’t news to anyone. There are currently a grand total of zero male-identifying openly gay soccer players in the top 5 leagues in Europe (Spain, England, Italy, German, & France). With the retirement of Robbie Rogers this past November, there are the same depressing number of male-identifying openly gay athletes in any of the five biggest professional sports leagues (NFL, MLB, NBA, NHL and ML$) in North America.
