community news, Cindy Parlow Cone: What we need to hear from US Soccers president

Without actual sports going on, it makes sense that we’re focusing a lot these days on the big changes at the U.S. Soccer Federation, with Cindy Parlow Cone taking over as president and Will Wilson becoming the new CEO. U.S. Soccer needs a culture change, and Parlow Cone and Wilson were promising with what they said on Tuesday in their first public teleconference together since taking over.

But I want to give Parlow Cone one bit of advice here. Soon we’ll hear the results of an independent review that’s examining how the U.S. Soccer board allowed an offensive legal strategy against the U.S. women’s players to go public. Even though Parlow Cone was on the board’s special litigation committee, she says she didn’t see the most incendiary part of that strategy before it went public. But it’s also true that we got a very clear indication of where that legal strategy was going in a previous filing on February 20 in which players like Carli Lloyd were asked if the U.S. women could be competitive against the U.S. men.
