http://www.mlssoccer.com/blog/post/...-soccer-join-forces-mls-julie-foudy-thinks-so Hey I'm all for the creation of "WMLS" if it makes financial sense and only for MLS Owners that contol/own their stadiums for revenue and lingistic reasons. I believe women's professional soccer has a place in the US professional sports landscape. It just needs the proper business and market models that tailor today's level of interest in the women's game. History has shown us with two failed women's leagues, and MLS's burgeoning success, the single entity model with the right type of deep-pocketed investors and now soccer-specific stadiums, the women's game may have a chance. But that's a different discussion for another thread... My issue is Foudy, and most of the "Founders" raised their nose in the air and laughed at the idea of joining with MLS after their WC success. They claimed MLS would be "riding their coattails"! MLS would be "leeches" to the launching of their new Women's League! They thought they would do a better women's professionl league than the men when launching MLS after their '94 WC success. It just stinks to me the arrogance they still continue to validate as they explain their reasons for shunning MLS and now they want to pose some guilt trip if MLS doesn't want to beckon to their cry to professional sporting oblivion. Again, I'm all for a professional women's soccer league. The US Women's National Team will surely suffer the next WC cycle the way the women's semi-pro set-up is to date. I'm just not for creating a WMLS on the level of the MLS if and of the "Founders" have any part of it. Let it be created by the MLS, with origins of ONLY the "MLS Founders". If you give Foudy, Chastain, et.al. a foothold into any part the "WMLS", you'll be opening Pandora's Box. If you thought the Bruce spouted off with mouth in his "know-it-all" critizisms... Oh boy, you just wait!
