    over a narrow field used for a National Womens Soccer League match last weekend
    is drawing attention to larger issues as players fight for respect.U.S. national
    team and NWSL stars Hope Solo, Carli Lloyd and Megan Rapinoe were among those
    using social media to declare the field unacceptable. More broadly, Solo, the
    U.S. national team and Seattle Reign goalkeeper who has been vocal about gender
    equity in her sport, took to her website to decry conditions for players in the
    NWSL, now in its fourth season and widely considered one of the worlds strongest
    womens leagues.Solo posted photos of fields with crooked lines, sad locker rooms
    and cleats that she said had melted after practice on an unwatered artificial
    turf field on a sweltering summer day.The `We know things arent up to par, but
    were going ahead with them anyway, attitude, quite honestly, is a fairly
    accurate reflection of how the NWSL has functioned during the four years of its
    existence, Solo wrote. Its far past time that the women in our league start
    being treated like professional athletes -- otherwise, we might as well just
    admit that the NWSL is just a semi-pro league, and stop pretending like its the
    best womens league in the world.The NWSL did not immediately respond Wednesday
    to a request for comment on Solos blog.Saturdays match between the Western New
    York Flash and Reign was played at Frontier Field in Rochester, New York, a
    minor-league baseball stadium. The Flash had to move the match because of a
    concert at their regular field.The field measured 100 yards by 58 yards. But
    NWSL standards call for a width of 70 yards.Images of the soccer field -- angled
    in the outfield -- quickly spread over social media, attracting the attention of
    U.S. national team players who had earlier in the day defeated South Africa in
    an exhibition to prepare for the Rio Olympics. National team players are
    allocated across the NWSL, but werent with their club teams this weekend because
    of the match.Lloyd, who plays for the Houston Dash, called the field shocking
    and embarrassing on Twitter. Alex Morgan (Orlando Pride) and Rapinoe (Reign)
    also weighed in, calling it unacceptable.CChristine Sinclair, who plays for the
    Canadian national team and the NWSLs Portland Thorns, posted: How is this ok?
    Not good enough for professional soccer.dddddddddddd 6v6 field?NWSL Commissioner
    Jeff Plush said in a statement following the match that the league had signed
    off on the move, but admitted it was the wrong decision in retrospect.As a
    professional league, we need to ensure that the integrity of the game is always
    respected both on and off the field, Plush said. We did not do that tonight and
    we apologize to the NWSL players, coaches and fans.No other womens professional
    league in the United States has lasted as long as the NWSL. It gets support from
    the U.S. and Canadian soccer federations, which pay the salaries of the national
    team players. But the league continues to experience growing pains -- including
    ongoing efforts to attract big-name sponsors.The field issue comes at a time
    when female players have been rallying for better treatment.Before the Womens
    World Cup last summer in Canada, former U.S. forward Abby Wambach led a group of
    player in protesting the artificial turf playing surface for the event. Players
    consider artificial turf inferior to natural grass.The group filed a complaint
    in Canadian court, arguing that staging the event on the surface amounted to
    discrimination because the men play the World Cup on grass, but it was
    ultimately dropped before the tournament so that players could continue
    preparations.Earlier this year, national team players filed a complaint with the
    federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, claiming wage discrimination.
    The women, who are currently in contract negotiations with U.S. Soccer, maintain
    that the mens national team players are paid far more in some cases.Morgan also
    called attention to shoddy accommodations in one NWSL city last season,
    complaining that bed bugs were found in the team hotel. Solos blog expanded on
    where she feels the league has fallen short, including low salaries for players
    who arent stars or on national teams. ' ' '
