National Women's Soccer League. What about a Major League Soccer Collaborative?

The short of it, as wikipedia puts it, is that the American women are very good, much proportionately better than our men are in competition internationally.  The women only get the feasible business fanfare during the international stuff like the Olympics.  Other soccer strong countries have sidelined their ladies too long and America's emphasis on women's play has helped us be more dominant.
"The success of the women's national team has not translated into success for women's professional soccer in the United States".

I would argue that we tag them along with MLS.  A cohort, a sidekick team, alongside the guys would be neat.  Let the little girls look up to the gals.  Give us all more to root for.  Keep them concession stands going.
Some MLS Franchises like Seattle, Vancouver and Houston have given this some thought.

There is a league now:
Current teams:
Boston, Chicago, Kansas City, Houston
Portland, Seattle, New Jersey, Maryland, and Western New York

Is your town represented?  Are your ladies or daughters represented?

Portland's Alex Morgan
If I couldn't have the WMLB, I would like a WMLS team of Cincinnati Redlegs

WMLB and my Lady Redlegs v. the San Diego Madres

WMLB, WNBA, WNHL, WMLS, ... and wha whuuut, WNFL?!

WNBA. So why not the WMLS?

MLS most feasible chance at travel team/home-camp shared team model. A Few Examples.

WNFL. You thought correct, the Women's National Football League

UFL and Arena Football filling a void? And the LFL Expanding to Broader Markets Faster. World Markets.
