    I don't see an article on the Fox Houston site but they have this on facebook:

    https://www.facebook.com/fox26houston


    The NWSL currently has these teams:

    Boston Breakers
    Chicago Red Stars
    FC Kansas City
    Portland Thorns FC
    Seattle Reign FC
    Sky Blue FC (Piscataway, NJ)
    Washington Spirit
    Western New York Flash (Rochester, NY)

    They played a 22 game regular season in 2013. Western NY won the regular season on goal difference when they, KC, and Portland all finished with 38 point. Four teams made the playoffs. Portland won the title over Western NY in the final.

    Just looking at the NWSL. I didn't realize that the Thorns are the only NWSL team with an affiliation with a MLS team. The rest are independent.

    Interesting that there is no comment from the Houston Aces in the Chron story.

    Jeez. Nothing I will say here is going to be warmly received. This seems more like another effort to fill stadium dates to help spread the fixed costs over

    Well I just got an email from the Dynamo with a survey asking for my input about a women's soccer team. I don't know what to say, women's soccer can be cool at times, but I already spend too much money and time on soccer as it is. There is only so much of both to go around. But I do want women's soccer to succeed here, women need soccer role models too. In the end, I doubt my opinion matters either way. As does WestSide's.

    Also to promote the Dynamo a little more. I can't imagine the stadium getting much revenue back from 11 or 12 dates with this sort of team especially if the Dynamo are actually going to own the team but I guess every little bit helps. Portland gets 13,000 a game for the Thorns but the rest of the league averages around 3,500.

    I'm leery of how much this will cost overall but other than that I don't see much of a downside.

    I got the survey email, they talk about $178 as the average season ticket cost, so 11 games at roughly $16 per seat. Figure that some will be higher and a few lower.

    Just don't want to take resources/time/effort away from the Dynamo. AEG I think bailed on the WPS, so surprised they would go back into it.

    Most likely lower level only for women's league. But if $25 gets me into the fancy west side club I'm jn.

    Organizations can do more than one thing at a time. Can. We'll see in this case if it actually happens. I'm still curious to see how the Houston Aces fit into all this if at all.

    Maybe have a double header.

    Reduced single game tickets or STs for Dynamo STHers?

    Maybe an occasional doubleheader but there probably won't be many of those. The women's team doesn't generate much revenue that way. Portland Thorns had doubleheaders with the Timbers Reserves but not the first team.

    Same issue with giving Dynamo STHs discounts. Those are the people most likely to buy full priced tickets in the first place.

    Not sure if serious. I don't think the making of 'The Pulp' is a Scorsese type epic with detailed storyboards and high production costs. :D

    Just call them the Dynamo Women (or Ladies or whatever your preferred term is). No reason to complicate things.
