    I guess St. Phil applies to only one "religion.":
    "When John Hendricks founded WUSA after the 1999 Women's World Cup, he and other investors asked MLS to draw up a business plan for them. Mark Abbott, MLS executive VP, did so, calling for a partnership.

    But WUSA summarily rejected it, and many in MLS felt used. No wonder major MLS investor Phil Anshutz turned WUSA down when the league came looking for money two weeks ago."


    From the same post article that called WNBA "somewhat successful"

    : p

    The WUSA thought they'd be bigger and better than MLS and didn't want to share their successes but more importantly their failures. MLS is lucky to have St. Phil and Hunt keeping the league alive. WUSA is foolish to not have relinquished its independence in the beginning to a billionare who knows how to make billions of dollars.

    You don't make money on a fledgling soccer league by spending your entire five year budget in the first year. Even I know that.
