Quote :
I’ve said before that there are plenty of reasons to own a sports
team or invest in it. You could argue that Barcelona is a “cause,” and
it’s sometimes hard to tell if that cause it the “more than a club”
philosophy or Keynesian theory on economic debt. (Yes, econ nerds, I
know I’m oversimplifying. Bear with me here.)

What we saw in 2011 wasn’t so much “cause” marketing as a different
type of ownership. Dan Borislow and Joe Sahlen differ on a few things,
but they had some similarities. They were willing to spend money on
talent. And their teams were, in part, outlets of their brands. Borislow
named the team after his product; Sahlen bought heavily as a league
sponsor with naming rights on their stadium.

So when we ask why Abby Wambach has sworn allegiance to Borislow or
why other national team players haven’t spoken up about the current
legal mess or Ella Masar’s incendiary blog post, are we really asking
what these players believe is possible in WPS?

The Western New York Flash and Boston Breakers will play this season,
and a couple of well-established WPSL teams (FC Indiana, former WPSer
Chicago Red Stars) will be moving into an “elite league” to join them.

But if you read what I’ve written [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.], you’ll see things aren’t quite as rosy for the league as a whole.

Quote :
Russia is a special place.

That is the phrase that resonated around Kia McNeill and Leigh Ann
Robinson during their two months with Russian powerhouse club
Rossiyanka. The words still echo through their minds when they talk
about their recent experiences halfway across the world.

Four former Women’s Professional Soccer (WPS) players ventured to
Russia to play this spring, but all four have since returned, citing
contract breaches and lack of professionalism.
