    At the MLS/WUSA doubleheaders I've been to I noticed they changed the goal after the WUSA game. From where I was sitting there didn't seem to be a difference. Is there a difference in size?

    I'm pretty sure, no! But I could be wrong.

    No, the FIFA laws do not specify a different goal size for men and women. It's universal.

    My understanding is just that the "official goal provider" for the WUSA and the MLS are different companies.

    P.S. It's also fun to watch them go around and change ALL the advertising between games of a doubleheader.

    Same here, and not just for fashion reasons. When I sat behind the goal at Fetzer Field last year, I couldn't see 1/3 of the field because of the damn netting! I would have seen through normal netting just fine.
