Strange the way men's football never really took off in America although the women's game did.

I would think that , American football , Baseball , and Basketball , would be very good reasons .

The USA puts lots of monies into finding and developing their best athlete's and of course most colleges do have their own sporting programs . Also men's soccer has not been around for as long as in Europe . and probably will never make the same level of interest that American football etc. has .

I guess it's a mans world but the women have it with Soccer they do have good sponsor's and of course the government programs, so when it comes to men and women's soccer , its a simple case of making money and pride in the sports field .

I wish it was the same in Canada !

The women's world cup final was one of the best soccer games I have ever watched without a doubt.....the television viewership was over 25 million,not bad at all!

What a refreshing change.. no rolling and writhing on the ground ,no prima donna tantrums ,no trying to influence referees to book players, just good clean endeavour , and also wonderful skills. I thoroughly enjoyed every game I watched..
Congratulations to team USA , ( though they were lucky against the the Aussie women, biggrin.gif ) they deserved to win the series.. Looking forward to watching more of the same , in the future.

90,000 to 100,000 expected at the "Rose Bowl" in Los Angeles to watch Los Angeles Galaxy v FC Barcelona.....traffic jams on freeways.

The Vancouver Whitecaps have been doing really well this year, especially at away games, they even beat the L>A> Galaxy (sorry Wellfield had to put that in yes.gif) They have had almost sell-outs at B.C. Place this year.

Oops, this is supposed to be Women's soccer.....
