Too many important reads today to leave it all on Twitter:
1. Charles Boehm puts the timeline of a new league announcement at or before Dec. 1.
2. What’s taking so long? Andy Crossley investigates and comes up with most of the answers.
3. Jerramy Stevens is out of court, but police are still investigating his incident with fiancee Hope Solo, Kelly Whiteside reports.
To put the Solo timeline in perspective, check the bonus chapter from her book, released online. Adrian, the man who had been with her through a lot of difficult times, was still with her family when the U.S. won gold in August. What has happened in the last three months? I have no idea, and I’m not speculating.
The soccer-related question is this: Is Solo going to play in the new league?

Is Solo going to keep playing period? What does she have to prove. Unless she thinks she can hang in there until the 2015 WWC and try to win a World Cup, what would be the point? Will the shoulder allow that? There was speculation among Beat executives in WPS as early as 2010 that she would retire after the 2011 WWC, let along the Olympics.
Good question. I haven’t really heard her talk one way or the other. But I wonder what she would do next.
