The report was published Monday, a year after players outraged by what they saw as a culture of abuse in their sport demanded changes by refusing to take the field. It found that leaders of the N.W.S.L. and the United States Soccer Federation — the governing body of the sport in America — as well as owners, executives and coaches at all levels failed to act on years of voluminous and persistent reports of abuse by coaches.

The cruel Galactic Empire, now adrift.
Amidst the battle, rebel spies prevail’d
And stole the plans to a space station vast,
Whose pow’rful beams will later be unveil’d
And crush a planet: ’tis the DEATH STAR blast.
Pursu’d by agents sinister and cold,
Now Princess Leia to her home doth flee,
Deliv’ring plans and a new hope they hold:
Of bringing freedom to the galaxy.
In time so long ago begins our play,
In star-crossed galaxy far, far away.

Timbers/Thorns probably get put up for sale in the near future. Red Stars were being rumored for relocation due to lack of a viable arena in Chicago. Gotham FC continues to be a mess. Louisville is a surprise since their ownership appeared to have everything together. Don't think future expansion will get derailed but this is clearly a very bad look for the league.

Seeing how the league office enabled abusers makes it clear how they were able to attract so many rich men to buy expansion teams while more successful women's leagues (i.e. the W) struggle to do so.
