Short takes

• FIFA is trying out a new system for dealing with offensive chanting by fans, and it might lead to problems for the Mexican national team. Mexico has been fined eight times by FIFA for homophobic chants directed at the goalkeeper, but the new system would give the power to the referee to suspend, or outright cancel, the game due to the chant. With Mexico having been officially warned, the next step is for the referee to take action, meaning that Mexican fans must be on their best behavior.

• Orlando City officially added Alex Morgan to its roster this week, though Morgan is still rehabbing the hamstring injury that she suffered playing for Lyon in France. With Marta also rounding into attacking form for the Pride, Orlando City suddenly looks dangerous in the NWSL.

• The Chinese Super League has signed a few good players for outlandish transfer fees, but a new policy might put a stop to that. The Chinese Football Association announced that there will be a 100 percent luxury tax on any big-money transfer, meaning that the days of $60 million-plus transfer fees to China are probably over.
