MLS Agrees To Adopt New Measures To Protect Gay Players
MLS has "agreed to new measures to protect gay players from discrimination and harassment as a result of meetings" with New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman. The efforts are "aimed at reinforcing the league's policies against discrimination." They include "expanded training for players, a centralized complaint system and posting a code of conduct prohibiting discrimination" in locker rooms. Schneiderman's office reached similar agreements with MLB and the NFL (AP, 3/13).
