    Dunno if it was posted already (sorry if that was the case), but it was written back in December by the LA Times and linked through the Lexington Herald. It was co-written by a male and female.

    I thought this comment was a very good observation:

    "Indeed, there is a fundamental difference in the way men's and women's professional leagues were formed.

    Most men's sports developed from small leagues into larger organizations which, after they reached considerable size, had increasingly grand playoff and championship events.

    The women's leagues seem to have formed the other way around: leagues spinning off from large, single events."

    The moral of the story is probably to start small and grow from there. Unfortunatley, there were too many false delusions of grandeur from the start.
