Is WPS in trouble?

“The biggest hindrance to the Red Stars might be the young and unstable nature of WPS itself. The league launches with at least five start-up franchises. Only the Boston Breakers and Washington Freedom have maintained teams, market presence and some level of staffing since playing in the WUSA before its 2003 demise. Jersey Sky Blue has been fielding women’s teams in recent years, but Los Angeles, Dallas and St. Louis lag well behind. According to the WPS website, none of those three has announced stadium leases, team names and staff.”
