Came to a head on Wednesday (local time) in a game in the second football League in the United States. The Coach of the San Diego Loyal repeated his Kicker before the end of the first half because midfielder Collin Martin was offended by an opposing professional homophobic. Martin, who hails from the U.S. state of Maryland, was outed two years ago and had been put in the injury time of the first half, the referee from the place. At the edge of the field, he reported to the fourth Official, and his Coach, former Bundesliga player Landon Donovan, of the incident. The was then his coach colleague from Phoenix Rising-to-speech. Particularly bitter: in Front of the game had agreed to the players and coaches of the Teams on a joint action against every Form of homophobia and racism. But the Banner with the inscription “I don’t want to roll the speak, I will act” (“We will talk, we will act”) was even out.

He did not know what mean the word was created,” said Donovan, who founded the Team from San Diego Loyal in the summer of 2019 itself. Therefore, he said, to the players from Phoenix, not from the place.
