Morace to quit after WWC?

Recommended Posts

My read on status of CM and WNT is they are playing but nothing has changed as far as CM and the WNT requests and concerns. My read on the CSA is typical lip service and speaking from both sides of their mouth.

Do you have information on this, or is it just a feeling?

Info is out there as this is the CSA's 3rd attempt (behinds the scenes offer, another go b4 the Cyprus Cup) at opening their mouth and getting no where close to what has been asked for. IMO the CSA has got a limited amount of time to put a good deal on the table and close one with CM and one for the WNT.

The closer the 2011 WWC gets the higher the stakes get for the WNT striking especially when the CSA has a track record of BS'ing the team. This goes back over a 10 year period even before the 2002 U19 WWC. At the U19's the CSA made promises about appearance fees for that WC so Charmain Hooper wouldn't lead the team to strike only to have the CSA say after the final they have no money for the players.

One Ontario District sent a letter to the CSA asking what was being done to organize fans, or a presence in the stadium for 26 June, the biggest women's game in History.... response NOTHING... NADA... NOT EVEN THINKING OF DOING ANYTHING... DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU MEAN.... seriously the CSA marketing folks, and in this case the CSA Chief Executive Officer, President and the Provincial presidents are all cupable and responsible for the shamefull way they are acting.

The CSA does not have a clue as to the marketing value for soccer this game is in Canada, and they clearly dont care, except to accept trips to Rome in April as one president currently has.... I will reserve judgement of the reason the President of Ontario has accepted to go to Rome as delegation head for exhibition games... but only until he returns and leads with statements of support for the players from Ontario and Canada on the women's team who are un-equitably under funded by the CSA.

This is a huge CSA misreading of business oppourtunity to market soccer in Canada by not being behind this team 200%.

And please dont respond with .. if the men can only qualify.... it will be okay... the reality is the Women are qualified and almost 50% of players in Canada are female... time to get up and out of the Blazers Provinical presidents and get asking some tough questions of your highly paid marketing manager and CEO... where is the vision ?

The CSA response and hollow promises at 5:35 and 6:55 from CSA marketing on sponsorship haven't changed since 2008

Many thanks to the CBC National for putting Chris Brown on the road to do

Our WNT continues to be "Have Team Will Travel"

The CSA continues to sell the magic oil and get better at it. I continue to support any movement or coalition to disband the CSA and establish a whole new organization with forward thinkers.

We need our national association to be run by experienced businessmen with a record of success outside the CSA, not carpetbaggers.

There's no way the women would be influential enough to demand it themselves, like the men could.

So you agree men can demand grass and women cannot ...mmm can you say double standard...not gonna fly in 2015 When as Sepp has said the future of football in feminine.... and shockingly he is right.

I don't know how you can say Ottawa has no plans to build a stadium. The NIMBYs are challenging it and until that goes through the courts nothing can be done but they're ready to go. Shovels were supposed to be in the ground this year.]

Approval is moving through the courts.... or not you have absolutely no assurance to give FIFA in September that a stadia will be ready for U20 Women's World Cup in 2014, hell the city has yet to talk to the local District Association to get its support for the program.

On Sunday, the CONCACAF Executive Committee approved expansion of its ranks with the inclusion of three non-voting seats. The positions were filled by Guyana's Colin Klass, Vice President of the Caribbean Football Union; Guillermo Cañedo of Mexico, a former Confederation Vice President; and Canadian women's national team coach Carolina Morace who will represent the interests of women's football.

Good for Carolina getting a post in a Confederation far away from Italy. Even if it is non-voting. Wonder what is Jack's agenda. By the way does Carolina speak Spanish?

The ultimate soccer mom

PAUL ATTFIELD

Toronto— From Saturday's Globe and Mail

Cracking the whip and bossing around players in the testosterone-fuelled, mad-fan Italian men’s soccer league is not for the meek.

But that’s where Carolina Morace, current coach of the Canadian women’s soccer team, found herself early in her career, thrown in at the deep end as the world’s first female coach of a professional men’s soccer team. In 1999, she took the reins of a club in Viterbo, just north of Rome, in the third tier of Italian soccer.

Morace had grown up playing what has largely been considered a men’s sport, and had dominated throughout much of her career, scoring 105 goals in 153 games after making her debut for the Italian national team at 14.

Though her trailblazing appearance at Viterbo stirred instant reaction – “The first match when I coached the men’s team, a big part of the stadium was pink as though it was saying to me, ‘Welcome,’” she recalled – it didn’t last long. Just three months and two league games into her appointment, she quit, citing interference by the team’s owner, who fired Morace’s assistant coach, Elisabetta Bavagnoli (who works with Morace to this day), and a team trainer.

“This is an indirect attack on me,” Morace said at the time. “It shows lack of faith in me.”
