Back in the 1970s I recall watching a soccer panel on English TV. They were discussing an important upcoming game -- maybe it was the FA Cup final. Both of the teams who would feature in that game had just had big wins and had scored a lot of goals. The moderator asked the two panel members -- both of them coaches --- what that meant for the upcoming final.

"It is crucial to verify that 'FIFA 17 is compliant [with the law] for the game's stated age group."

For a limited time, "FIFA 17" allowed players to download a rainbow-hued jersey to support the "Rainbow Laces" campaign that the Premier League promoted. (Washington Post)
