Wow. What a blistering critique from Mr. Pisano! Looking at his Facebook page it seems that he is heavily involved with the Charge in some way - maybe a financial backer or other front-office position. I couldn't find too much about him after a cursory Google search. Anyways, his post brings out some of the criticisms that a lot of us make on this board. Namely, the marketing, or lack thereof, the league does. The league inability to build long-term franchises, and the inability for the NPF to co-exist with the Olympics. I wonder what he meant by a league that has "burnt so many bridges".
I think Pisano is dead right on one issue: the NPF needs new leadership. It the league's shortcomings are so evident to outsiders, then something needs to change. Professional women's soccer has gone through several iterations, but they've finally landed on something that works. There's really no reason that softball can't do the same. It's time for a change at the top!
Pisano was the Charge Director of Marketing
