A very sad day indeed. I didn't think the WUSA made for great television entertainment, but in person it was a great sport played by some of the world's best athletes. And it was only going to get better. I don't know enough about "the business plan" to really comment, though obviously counting on corporate sponsorship that was never forthcoming was a huge mistake. It would almost seem like you would have to try extra hard to burn through $100 million in three years in an 8 team league paying what they paid their players, but somehow they managed to do so. Hindsight is 20-20, but I'm sure someone would do it differently if they could start all over. I really thought they'd see it through to next year. 95% of the "experts" said there was one more year left, but after that all bets were off. I guess things were even worse than they appeared. Someone, no doubt, will start a thread of favorite WUSA memories. I'll post some other thoughts there.
