Yeah, USSF has done a great job of providing for the women. That's why lawsuits and CBA arguments, etc. continue.

How about the absolute sham of a professional league system for the women for how...

Dual sports could happen, if HS administrators would allow it. I've seen it all over the state where a player does football and soccer in the same season. This is strictly a school policy.

Not all clubs feed into professional 1st teams. Nonetheless, maybe THAT is exactly what the US needs? More of these clubs to continue to offer programming beyond the U18/19 level? The majority of...

I would argue the other way. Not enough clubs and the ones we have are too big.

The problem is: US Soccer and MLS entities do not know or care about scouting. US Soccer employs one full-time scout. That's it. Most MLS teams do zero scouting.

How is it harsh? They chose to pay $150m for a "franchise." That's their fault. They can be criticized enough for that.

All of these are lame excuses. They signed up for the "project." Why should anyone cut them slack? No one forced their hand at moving to MLS.

Not all MLS DAs are free. DC United still charges. There's a possibility that Minnesota charges. I've lost track anymore.

Several other "free" ones utilize their affiliate clubs to pay for their...

They've already started scouring across the country for better talent.

The "fully funded" talk is somewhat accurate. Yes, those within some DAs do not have to pay. The "fully funded" part comes from their affiliates. As an example, FC Dallas has a "fully funded" DA, but...

Aligns with NCAA rules. Not much of an issue there. It's actually nice that there's not constant subbing that delays the game.
