Two More Trees Fall In Empty WPS Forest (UPDATE)

There's an actual crowd back there. So what's the deal?

We’ve made a lot of friends enemies over at Needs More Kittens, and I’m sure this post will continue that trend.

Reports say that two moreĀ WPS teams are folding, leaving the women’s league with just six clubs for next season, assuming it gets that far.The other interesting part of these teams folding is that it means the four teams with recognizable players have folded. It’s also the second time that Brazilian star Marta has had a team fold under her.

This also marks the second consecutive season that the WPS champion will fold.

I know this league barely pays anything, but come on. Is it that bad? We’ve written about how the WPS model is just not working, but the league continues to portray itself as the little league that could. And at least they got rid of the skort-like shorts on the FC Gold Pride kits.

I hope someday there is enough interest and corporate backing to keep a women’s professional league alive. In this economy, I’m just not sure this is the time. Which is too bad, even if I’ve never seen a game in full. I have an 8-year-old daughter, and it would be nice to tell her, “you can be like that girl someday if you practice really hard.” This generation doesn’t have a Mia Hamm to look up to. Maybe if WPS had a chance of success, that would be different.

Oh well, I guess it’s back to the men and shots of women in skimpy bikinis. Give the people what they want, I always say.

UPDATE: The Freedom have issued a statement regarding the rumors of their demise. They are still in business … for now, and they continue to search for new investors. In the end, I suspect the original report will be correct, but the team is giving its best shot to stay alive.
