This week’s questions will cover a very hot topic: controversial officiating. As we’ve seen in both World Cup and WPS games, the wrong call can have devastating results. What can or should be done, if anything? This is what will be tackled in the chat this week.

Q1: Should plays be reviewable?

  • Why would you want plays to be or not be reviewed?
  • Which plays should and should not be reviewed?
  • What impact would this have on the play of the game?

Q2: Should referees be held accountable for their calls?

  • Would an on-field explanation of the call and who it was called on suffice?
  • What type of penalties should referees face for bad calls?
  • Would call explanation bring in non-traditional soccer fans?

Q3: What is your favorite play of the week?

Q4: What would you like to discuss in the upcoming weeks?

This week marks the 10th WPS chat. I know, you can hardly believe it. When this chat started, it was only an idea, only a dream.  So in keeping with that theme, week 10 questions dwell in the land of dreaming, specifically one many of us probably have: coaching in the WPS.

Q1: What if you were a coach of a WPS team for a match?

  • What team would you want to coach?
  • Why would you want to coach this team?

Q2: What if you were signed as a coach to finish the season for that WPS team?

  • Would you make any changes to your roster?
  • What about changes to the starting line-up?
  • What would you do to prepare your team for next season?

Q3: What is your favorite play of the week?

Q4: What would you like to discuss in the upcoming weeks?

This week’s chat is going to be exciting, thanks to our gracious guest Tiffany Weimer (@TiffanyWeimer) from the Boston Breakers.  Those joining the chat will be able to ask her questions about Our Game, a new magazine dedicated to women’s soccer.

With Our Game being the feature this week, we’re turning the tables on the chat format. Instead of answering questions, tweeps will be able to direct questions toward Tiffany about the magazine.  To make sure that the discussion moves along at a good pace, we’d suggest breaking the chat into three topic segments over our usual hour and a half.

The first segment will cover the magazine’s beginning.  Potential questions include:

  • Where did the idea for the magazine come from?
  • How much effort was put into finding contributors?
  • What is the vision of the magazine?

The middle segment will focus on the current workings of the magazine, such as:

  • How are the articles chosen?
  • Will there be regular contributors?
  • Has the vision changed since the release of the first magazine?

The last segment will cover the future for the publication, like:

  • Where do you see the magazine going?
  • What may be expected to be covered in future issue?

Ultimately, this week’s questions are up to you. If there is something you want to know about Our Game, now is the time to ask. If you haven’t had the opportunity to read the magazine click here: Our Game. You should also follow them on twitter @OurGameMagazine and on Facebook at Our Game Magazine.

Week 8 will be the second and final session hosted from Mexico (I will be back in Boston for the June 14th session). The questions for this week will focus on the outcomes of the Saint Louis folding.

Q1: What impact (if at all) does the folding of the Athletica have for the WPS?

  • The league has seven franchise as it did in the first year, is the WPS still “healthy”?
  • Does this make the games even more competitive and exciting to watch?

Q2: What are your thoughts on the different teams signing of free agents?

  • Did the international cap have a role in the signing?

Q3: What is your favorite play of the week?

Q4: What would you like to discuss in the upcoming weeks?
