Women's Soccer USA

Coverage of women's soccer in the US. If it's not here...it's not important...

Jamie Trecker is at it again

"In a statement, Johnson said: “WPS has proven itself to be a smart business venture, with a conservative business plan built on realistic numbers and executive leaders that not only know soccer as a sport, but as a business,” said Johnson.
But surely a man of Johnson’s acumen knows that his statement is wishful thinking at best. The new league is unproven, because it hasn’t started. And, a look at WPS’ roll call shows a distinct lack of soccer business people. Only Peter Wilt, who is heading up the league’s marketing, has the combination of soccer experience and soccer business experience.
I have to wonder if these same “soccer business people” realize that announcements like these lessen the league’s credibility."
