    Fair enough, but then you should have said as much. Remember you're in a fan forum here - if you say something along the lines of "everyone is saying X", it's going to be read as "everyone in this forum is saying X" unless you clarify. I know you didn't call me out specifically, which is why I quoted as many people as possible. You're not talking directly to any teams here (except maybe the Breakers, since some of their execs have posted in the NWSL forums on rare occasions).

    Besides, I think you're overblowing how much "attention" WPSL gets. It's an absolutely massive league, so it's going to get some attention just by critical mass and the fact that people are likely to have a WPSL team near them - you can't hang on them for that. They're also simply part of the pipeline to the pros - which would be true even if they officially declared themselves as DIII instead of DII. Unless UWS is aiming to be more "amateur" than "pro", WPSL will be the go-to for college players during the summers - no way that changes, so it's going to get attention for that as well.

    Also, the "support" given to them by NWSL teams isn't as strong as you're reading. For CHI and BOS, maybe, but Washington has never been a huge supporter. I think it was you yourself that said Washington was interested in UWS back when the league was forming but wanted to wait and see how the league played out, which is a perfectly reasonable hesitation (for Washington or for any other teams mentioned that were playing the "wait-and-see" game). Also, @StarCityFan pointed out in the UWS thread that Washington has not been happy with WPSL. So, as I said before, not exactly singing the praises of the league.
