    I didn't really follow soccer until recently. I've heard refrences to the WUSA being arrogent towards the MLS. I know that both leauges had there game of the week in the same time slot, which struck me as extreemly odd and stupid. The teams that could have been effected were SJ, Metros, Revs, and DCU right? So did the WUSA hurt or help MLS in anyway. Just out of curiosity what were WUSA attendances like.

    Overall, the league average was about half that of MLS. With the exception of the DC and SJ teams, WUSA played in smaller college venues, compared to the MLS games in NFL stadiums.

    While MLS is expanding, and building new stadia geared to soccer, WUSA is a memory -- and an object lesson. That's the difference, in a nut shell.

    For me, there is no love lost towards the WUSA.
