    So, the WUSA spent $100 million in year one?

    I mean, the fact that you overspend your budget by 250% right off the bat kinda sets the tone for the stability of the league.

    It's gotta be more spending, but a lower percentage, because they got something from ticket sales, local sponsorships, etc.

    I think it means they had $40 million to start out with and they burned through $40 million plus another $20 million.

    At least I think that's what it meant.

    Then they lost another $24 million; then another $17 to $20 million.

    Voi-la!! $100-$104 million!!

    This writer is with a Cincinnati paper. She wrote this about the WWC:

    I know we cry and moan too much about the "soccer haters" in the press, but this line I think says volumes about the problems soccer (not just women's soccer) faces.

    I'm basically a couch potato nowadays, but I sure wouldn't have minded being part of this pickup soccer game:

    MLS is like Triple-A baseball

    but where did MLS is like Triple-A baseball come from? If so, Triple A baseball ain't bad for a baseball league. At least it is better than the Japanese league.

    24-hour "tournament and slumber party".


    I predict this will devolve into something involving several arrests and Landon needing tetnis shots.
