First, Paul Tenorio of The Athletic joins to discuss the story of the lawsuit filed on behalf of 15-year-old Olivia Moultrie, who’s trying to sign a contract with Portland Thorns FC. Then, Howard Megdal of The Next and The IX Newsletter is on to break down all of the storylines around the NWSL Challenge Cup final, make a case for New Jersey’s finest Carli Lloyd, and take a step back to discuss the landscape of the NWSL and women’s sports coverage in general.
