Joe fan:  WCHA plan to raise money is a disaster - just $700 in donations so far.  

Brad column headline:  WCHA well on its way to keeping women's hockey alive with $700 donation!

They now have raised $1,835 out of $50,000 goal and increased the days from 40 to 236 and raised $25 for the postgrad scholarship.

The Body issue stuff doesn't bother me.  Of course it will become a bigger issue, alongside the pay if they don't bring home the gold medal, or god forbid they do what the US Women's soccer team did in the Olympics last year. 

The commish has a right to be concerned, but i'll believe it when I see it that this is the beginning of the end for Women's Hockey.  Honestly, she should be more worried about 2 Big Ten schools adding M/W hockey then other schools dropping the sport.  I mean, which other WCHA school would even be in a position to do so?

Don't think the end is near for collegiate women's hockey....but not a good sign.. I would suspect there are more young females, thru high school age playing soccer in MN/ND than play hockey......prolly same for males, too..

in the US I would suspect soccer is also more popular...both in participation and general fan interest...

Next the WCHA will have teams sell ad space on their jerseys.

Jersey advertising only works if somebody watches the game.

A sold out Betty vs a damn near empty REA. The women had their chance to make WH something but not many showed their support in the seats compared to on social media.

That's true of most of our our sports. How many fans support golf, soccer, tennis, track, swimming and Diving or softball? 

 

What gets me is that the hockey team knew the school was in a budget crunch and still had that massive budget when teams across the Red River were equally competitive for a fraction of the cost. As soon as they were no longer declared "safe" they had huge target on their backs and they have no one to blame but their own inept staff.
