    I have three complaints about the TV game yesterday: 1. The quality of play in the WPS this year is not good. The first games looked like the teams had not practiced. Now we get new players on teams and the level of play regresses. 2. I can not believe that Philly could not find a better field to play on. Two-toned turf with football lines does not make a good soccer game to watch. 3. The uniform colors make for bad TV. The gold and grey uniforms are not good TV colors. The contrast is poor and the colors blend in with the field and background. I watch each week because I am a soccer guy but WPS is not presenting a good product on TV.

    Ihave to agree with Bruce about the field and uniforms..really bad for TV.. in all pro sports, expansions happen and being a new league, owners will come and go....Teams will fold and players will be moved around...WPS is working very hard to "make it happen"...Was very impressed with the play of Tina DiMartino,she just signed about a week ago..

    Come on guys, so what if the ambience wasn't perfect? The soccer was good, and since I live in the SF Bay Area, the score was perfect.
