U.S. Soccer subsidizing individual players is a bad idea because the incentives are all screwed up. The 25 players with contracts feel their positions on the national team are assured, and why wouldn't they? Hardly anyone outside that group gets called up at all, no matter how good their club form is. I think NWSL should scrap the allocations altogether and instead subsidize each NWSL team an equal amount. All players should be on an equal playing field. Good league play = a USWNT call up. Enough of this artificial separation of players into two classes. All the current system does is make the allocated players feel they deserve their national team spots. Like I said before, bad incentives.
