Ok so everyone is saying that there is a "good chance" WUSA will be back playing what looks to be a shortened pre Olympics season. How would this work? USSF at one point has apparently committed $1.8 million to the league. That's probably what they would have spent anyway on the NT training camps/schedule that would be necessary to get a team together for the Olympics. Not sure what kind of corporate support will actually materialize. We're in Q3 and heading into Q4 when companies will want to hit their plan numbers. Taking on additional marketing expenses that weren't part of the plan would not be a smart move for companies that are public. Also, if WUSA couldn't get enough corporate support in their old structure with PAX games and cable support - what kind of support is realistic if WUSA2 doesn't have a tv deal and consists of teams barnstorming around the country tournament style? The overall eyeballs will be fewer - both from a TV and actual attendance point of view as they will play fewer games. Finally, how is WUSA going to market the new league - given that everyone and their mother think now that the WUSA is dead? They got more publicity surrounding that event than even the launch so most people who know anything about WUSA know it's dead. Getting the message to those fans is going to be difficult - especially on a shoe string budget.
