I hear what you're saying, but I still think it's bizarre for the media (abetted by WUSA and the US Soccer Federation) to try to make it all about Mia.PAULMAY said:Actually our lady Queen has been great for the sport and she has been a role model for Womens Football. As from the signs around the ground many have come just to see her play. And yes there are 10 other players out there who have given the US thier rank. But when you talk about the US natl team Mias name will always be linked with it so the media will play that up whenever they can.
Now you and I both know that Football takes a back seat to every other sport in the US and Canada. So any attention that it gets so the game comes off the footnotes on the bottom of the News page to full back page headlines cant hurt.
