Content warning: This episode contains mention of verbal, emotional and sexual abuse.
It’s time for a fútbol-filled episode of The GIST of It. Co-hosts Ellen Hyslop and Steph Rotz kick things off by chatting on- and off-field World Cup updates. The quarter-finals are nearly set with tourney favorites taking care of business in the knockouts, while a brand new potential off-field Qatar controversy just dropped. This sh!t never ends.
Then El and Steph take it to the NWSL where two controversial team owners announced their plans to sell last week. But, sadly, this welcome news was met with some disparate player reactions, stirring up a boatload of controversy on social media. The gals break it all down, and chat about what it all means, especially in the wake of the Sally Yates report.
