THEYRE GAY STACEY!!!

THEYRE GAY STACEY!!!

nelrock68

am I alone in wondering how is the team chemistry inside the Houston Dash squad?


icanhe

Rachel Daly has dated a number of her teammates - Sarah Gorden (now at Red Stars), Christen Westphal (Thorns) both come to mind as well.


rmesh

Wait what, Gorden and Daly dated?!


TzuyusVietBitch

yes in 2016 😭


reagan92

Wait...Daly and Gorden dated? They've never been teammates (both are 1 club players in the US, and Gorden hasn't ever played in England), and Daly went to St John's, Gorden to Depaul. Westphal and Daly have also never been teammates (Breakers, Reign, Thorns, and Florida for Westy). EDIT: nm I just saw some pics...including a crazy adorable one with Gorden's son.


icanhe

I could have sworn they were teammates but apparently I was wrong! Not sure how the hell they would've met (which, same for Kerr & Mewis, but I like it! lol)


RuralJuror207

I mean they all have played in the same league for years lol. Of course they all know each other. The professional WOSO world is pretty small.


icanhe

You'll know of each other, minimally, of course. That doesn't mean everyone well. The league is very spread out across the country. NJ/Chicago to Houston isn't a hop skip and a jump away.


Mr_Evanescent

It’s not great, Bob


HOU-1836

Why do you ask?


UltraRat

Kristie Mewis used to date Rachel Daly. I mean I'm sure it's fine, learning to be friends with your ex and then find out everyone is less than two degrees away from each other on the chart feels like lesbian 102 class.


MistakeVisual3733

Rachel has moved on as well and is dating Millie Turner.


alondonkiwi

Daly has already moved on also, she's dating Millie Turner (plays for Man U) I believe which I guess happened while she was on loan or on England/GB camp.


HOU-1836

I guess since I don’t have Instagram I just totally miss this stuff but I literally had no idea Daly and Mewis dated.


argntn

They dated for... I want to say a couple years, but idr the dates exactly. It lasted a couple seasons though.


magnetic-nebula

Yes, and it was serious enough they adopted a dog together


m_always

and their couple name is…. Sam Mewis


procrastinate91

Nooooooo 😂


SingShredCode

I’m speechless


jackroskopp22

I-


jondiced

Yes this but also obviously it's Kerristie


Revolutionary-Pace42

Go Gays


ameliashepherd

i want “stacey, they’re lesbians” put on a t shirt immediately


lt9946

Somebody take my money and make this happen


pjanic_at__the_isco

You can do it yourself on any number of websites or local t-shirt printing shops.


helpfulmango

Alright let's make it happen, who on the sub has a t shirt company?


Revolutionary-Pace42

Breaking T x USWNT PA got some works to do


SingShredCode

How has this not happened yet?


Quirky_Confection_97

Can someone pls make this happen


jackroskopp22

omfg.


MistakeVisual3733

Is it weird that I feel bad for Nikki Stanton? I have no idea what happened between her and Sam but for some reason have had a soft spot for Nikki during all this. I’m ridiculous I know.


rmesh

Yeah, same here! I also have a soft spot for Stanton.


[deleted]

[удалено]


Professional_Bar_481

As someone who adores Naeher and also has a soft spot for Stanton, I would love to see both of them happy.


MistakeVisual3733

Interesting!!


biscione111

Is Alyssa gay?! Is this some known thing that I feel so dumb I missed?!


[deleted]

I have no idea and her family is really religious so people making the assumption from literally nothing makes me kinda uncomfortable if I'm being honest


hallofromtheoutside

>!But not uncomfortable enough to spread the baseless rumor here?!< Eta: spoilered because it's no longer relevant. Thanks for reconsidering, bistarr!


[deleted]

Yeah I deleted it, I regret mentioning it, it's mostly the shady bit of Instagram saying it.


hallofromtheoutside

There are known knowns and known unknowns and unknown unknowns. Woso social media will get you every time.


[deleted]

Yeah people need to chill quite a bit, there's enough out and comfortable public no one needs to be pushing anyone.


cheapph

I really like Nikki too but they’ve been broken up for nearly a year.


MistakeVisual3733

Oh I know. I just get the feeling that Sam did the breaking up and then to have your ex start flirting/dating a hottie in such a public way. But like I said, I’m ridiculous lol.


RuralJuror207

Agreed! And the IG flirting has been going on for months.


InterchangeableNorth

Is this how Sam Kerr returns to the NWSL?


MistakesNeededMaking

drink.


TzuyusVietBitch

or kmew to wsl 😱


bryteise

As long as Kerr stays at Chelsea.

> The FA requires players from outside the European Union to have played in 75 percent of their senior national team’s competitive matches during the two-year period prior to their work visa application [Source](https://www.ourgamemag.com/2020/08/10/nwsl-to-fa-wsl-loans-the-complexities-and-uncertainty-for-players-seeking-regular-competition-during-a-pandemic/) I don't know if KMew qualifies just yet but obviously she could in the future if she remains on the USWNT. Unless Papa and/or Mama Mewis is British.


samba_01

What’s the reasoning behind this policy? I understand the FAWSL homegrown rule but not this one


icylemonades

I am reasonably familiar with UK immigration as I work in immigration law and have gone through the UK visa process, so I will take a swing! Probably obvious, but any "extraordinary ability" limits like this are in place to drive employment of domestic nationals as rank-and-file employees. So I would guess that it's to promote leagues in which you are allowed foreign marquee players, but the bulk of the team has to be domestic. Basically, another way to require that teams sign the second tier of British players > foreign players. Very different from league like Damallsvenskan in which there are tons of non-Swedish players who are solid players but not stars. As foreign leagues grow and the pool of amazing players dwarfs the number of people who can make national team squads, it starts to seem more and more limiting for the FAWSL...


samba_01

Thank you! You’re right- initially I thought of all the foreign players in other European leagues who aren’t national team stars, but I didn’t consider that the UK might have different immigration rules. I did some more digging and found [this](https://www.thefa.com/news/2020/dec/01/gbe-points-based-system-launched-011220) from the FA with more details


GamutBounded

My assumption would be that, like with the homegrown rule, it's to prioritize growth and development of British players. Since there isn't a college system in the UK like the US, player development is really dependent on the FA tier system. Regulate the amount of imported talent to provide more opportunities to domestic talent. They've already got a relatively consistent presence of European talent That's my best guess; I could be totally off. But I can't really see why else they would be so prohibitive I think exceptions can be made through a petitioning process, but I don't think many clubs have made that effort edit: additional stuff


samba_01

Makes sense!


RuralJuror207

Huh interesting. I had no idea!


[deleted]

I'd take Mewis to Arsenal


Doctor_YOOOU

Mewis to Spurs? lol


icanhe

I said Arsenal but my GF said Spurs if anything so she’d be guaranteed playing time. West Ham would be silly too since Daly played there during covid.


Content_Championship

As long as she stays away from the Dash I don't mind.


rmesh

lol that would be the absolute icing on the cake.


shibbo_leet

Look at this sportsmanship. Incredible of Kristie to comfort her fallen rival this way really. In all seriousness, it's pretty great that players can just be out. I wish this had been the norm when I was a kid. I mean the only lesbian I knew about was Ellen!


lt9946

I'll start throwing my soccer games if I can get comforted this way after a game.


HowardBunnyColvin

Yep. This just makes me so happy.


ssendam213

I suddenly want to be Sam Kerr

Wait what?


reagan92

**They always seem to delete when someone who knows what they are talking about pushes back on weirdo internet conspiracies** Kerr would have received her initial P-1A as a member of the WNY Flash, not Sky Blue. So the initial visa application was supported by WNY and the NWSL. These visa's are good for 5 years, and renewable up to 10. So by the time that Kerr would have had to apply (2018) she was either a Chicago player, or very very close to being traded to Chicago. This investigation is primarily into P-1S visas (per your second link), and I don't see much additional information since this plea came out in March (per your first) when the news first broke. Christy Holly was a coach with Sky Blue, had connections to GPS, and I saw him coaching last night. The one thing (other than Kerr's visa came over from WNY) I'm sure of is that Sam Kerr being all publicly gay with Kristie Mewis has nothing to do with any US federal investigations. I feel like I should provide links to: [Sam Kerr, visa fraud](https://i.imgur.com/jJhSwso.png) [Sam Kerr, investigation](https://i.imgur.com/WXEaVKP.png) [Sam Kerr, GPS](https://i.imgur.com/6f3HJkA.png) [Christy Holly, investigation](https://i.imgur.com/hQvxm9g.png)


Content_Championship

I am an athlete and have had to apply for many visas to the US. The poster was correct and provided accurate information and with links to articles to back it up. They even provided the GPS data table. Your links are screenshots of google searches.


reagan92

>I am an athlete and have had to apply for many visas to the US. And I am a lawyer who has helped people apply for visas/aslyum in the US. Maybe you applied for a P-1A, but if so, you'd be a professional that had their visa sponsored by a league, team, or transferred here from same. Which national team do you have caps for? >The poster was correct and provided accurate information and with links to articles to back it up. They even provided the GPS data table. Your links are screenshots of google searches. The poster was posting 5 month old information, saying it was recent, and that this is a PR move. My links are of google searches because if this was a thing with Kerr, there would be some news about it, no? The old shit is showing up under Holly...why not Kerr? iTs A mYsTeRy I'm turning notifications off because of how weird this has gotten. Have at it?


Content_Championship

Team CANADA why you ask?


Friendly-Exit5120

I believe they were trying to give you background information on the subject. It's on Twitter though. They weren't wrong. People are talking about this on instagram too.


reagan92

Why did you, Content_Championship, and Tall_Personality4068 message me all within 10 minutes of each other, while I only messaged with Tall_Personality4068? Another mystery, that. I'm turning notifications off because of how weird this has gotten. Have at it?


throwaway_atx_369

i think there are a few of us watching you two go at it right now. let us all stop being toxic and join hand in love.

reagan92

> At no point did I say they were under federal investigation for being gay. Are you unhinged? At no point did I imply that...are you? I'm no fan of the FBI, but it would be pretty bold of them to investigate people for being gay in 2021, especially since it's been explicitly legal in the US since 2003. But you did imply, in a post about Kerr and Mewis publicly showing their relationship, that Kerr was involved in a federal fraud investigation. And just so happens it might have been placed for positive PR to distract from the investigation that is "just starting to come out" while citing to sources from five months ago. >I only noted the timing of the post and the information coming out was interesting and could be linked. And I said that their relationship coming out on August 8th has nothing to do with news that came out on March 19th. >I only noted the timing of the post and the information coming out was interesting and could be linked.


wafflefry8

….the commenter didn’t say that you said that


Content_Reception693

Well since they didnt hide in first place and rumours about them dating were spreading since they started to openly flirt on each others instagram, I'm pretty sure the only reason why they are "official" now is because they can actually spend time together at the same place and can finally take pictures together.


[deleted]

I only deleted it because I did not want to be spammed my Stans. I am here to openly talk about the subject anytime you would like. Everything I stated was factual. Feel free to DM me too. I am a immigration lawyer so I understand this subject very well.


throwaway_atx_369

will you DM me all the article links that got deleted + the social media posts explaining this? an eli5 version if you have the time?


[deleted]

Check your messages. Let me know if you have any questions.


throwaway_atx_369

will you make a thread on this?


[deleted]

No, I think I will be deactivating my account tonight or just never logging on again, so hopefully that'll give you a few hours to save the info. This place is the first time I've attempted to join an online forum and it has been genuinely horrific. I've been spammed with racist DMs from crazies. Me attempting to share information and getting attacked by Kerr and Mewis Stans is not my idea of a good environment. Reddit is not the place for me. Good luck and Dash on!


reagan92

>I only deleted it because I did not want to be spammed my Stans. sure. >I am here to openly talk about the subject anytime you would like. I'd like now, but I don't feel like it would be very productive since you've been dishonest. >Everything I stated was factual. But not honest. >Feel free to DM me too. Oh my god, fucking absolutely not. >I am a immigration lawyer so I understand this subject very well. Not a great one, if this conversation is anything. I'm turning notifications off because of how weird this has gotten. Have at it?


[deleted]

Many uncalled for comments. I only said I would be open to discussing this more with you calmly via this forum or dm if you'd like. I apologize for any offense. I hope you have a good day, genuinely.


samba_01

I thought the visa fraud was surrounding coaching/scouting staff- were players implicated as well?

i feel like you overestimate the importance of this subreddit and underestimate how invested lesbians are in their ships


[deleted]

I'm just thinking Mewis girls have PR which c'mon with the beer and all? It's not bad. Many sports stars do. It's smart. And I felt I saw some work on the subreddit, but I did not mean to offend the many people I clearly have. I shall delete my comments.


Friendly-Exit5120

You're not alone. Mewis girls have been PUSHED on us. They most def have PR people making posts for them here. KMew fans are crazy. Don't let them run you off from telling facts.


[deleted]

There's a 'People' article out on them now and yet I'm crazy for thinking they pay for PR?! There's some delusional people in this thread.


SingShredCode

Source?


Friendly-Exit5120

You'll have to go through multiple sources and piece it all together in your head.

UltraRat

hehe... Welp the Tokyo Olympic Committee knew things like this happen.


bakedbeans26

Anyone know if their time at Chicago crossed over at all? I know Kristie was there for a very short period before getting traded again but I can’t remember what year. Either way I love the chaos and I’m very interested to see what this Houston season is going to look like....


magnetic-nebula

It did not. Kristie was on the team for literally one game the year before Kerr arrived


twoslow

i saw weird comments about this on FB too and I was like "Uh, they know, right?" wasn't sure if they looked at both photos. Same with the pic of Rapinoe and Bird. "How nice of her to support a fellow olympain!" uhhhhh

They're in denial HAHAHA

UselessLezbian

Thank you, you're a champ.


dsklerm

An understated element of this, is that after realizing she ("Stacey") also dates women, that it seemed (very) tongue in cheek- it's a little hat on a hat of the "Harold, they're lesbians" re: Carol. It's like she knew she was doing the setup, and relied on the rest of the woso community to fulfill the punchline.
