This week’s sudden announcement that the women’s professional league in the US was folding prompted a lot of discussion in the soccer world. A good analysis of the situation is at the LA times. While this piece on dailycamera.com hopes to silenece the folks who think this is a sign that soccer in the US is not viable.
I was at the inuagural WUSA game here in DC and also at one or two DC United/Freedom double headers. I’m sad not for the star players of the game, they’ll still be playing on the National and Olympic teams, but for all the other middle and lower tiered players who were trying to make a go of it. I hope all of you find a spot in the game either coaching in college, running clinics, or in the WPSL and that the next first division women’s league comes along real soon.
