I mentioned on my radio show last night that I get emails asking for more womens coverage.
Those that want more coverage of the womens game need to get on the phone and bring the subject to the table.
I have interviewed on my show ‘The Soccer Hour with Glenn Davis’ Mia Hamm, Julie Foudy, Brandi Chastain, Cat Reddick, Greg Ryan, Abby Wambach, Tiffeny Roberts and Heather Mitts among others.
When Mia Hamm, Julie Foudy, Carla Overbeck retired along with the phasing out of Brandi Chastain at the national team level one wondered where the support for the womens game would go.
Without that big 4 and before them Michelle Akers the game has lost their pioneers. Combined with the collapse of the WUSA it is tough now for the women to get their due. Now with the Womens World Cup coming up the womens game has opportunity to get a boost again. Currently the collegiate game is the highest level women can play at in the U.S.
Sad to hear that fiscal responsibility and partnering with MLS clubs now becomes relevant after poor leadership when the WUSA was formed. This is the way it should have been launched in the first place.
On another note the U.S. Women won the four nations tournament in China beating the hosts 2-1 in their final game .
Rising stars Lori Chalupny and Natasha Kai scored the goals.
