The Football Paper Begin Featuring Womens football Can't Post or Reply Privately

For those interested the Non League Paper mentioned in this weeks edition, that it's sister paper 'The Football Paper' will begin an 8 page feature on the Women's game from next week, assume mostly covering WSL1.
Personally I'd liked to have seen this in the NLP, as I don't buy the football paper, although for this weekend I'll make an exception to see what it entails.

So you want the professional Women's Premier League to be shoved amongst non-league football?

I found that suggestion a bit odd as well.

Given that non-League football is about everything that the Premier League and Football League are not why not have WSL in it? The players are down to earth and take time to talk to fans and, as noted, most of them probably earn non-League wages in men's terms.

But they aren't non-league.

If "non-League" means non-Football League or non-Premier League, yes they are.
If "non-league" means "without a league" then no they aren't, and neither is any of the other football we discuss here.

Have your cake or eat it.

"If "non-League" means non-Football League or non-Premier League, yes they are."
In that case, La Liga is non-league... maybe they should have an update in the NLP? Crazy

The Women's Super League is not a non-league competition - it is the top 2 levels of its sport.

But it is non-league, as "non-league" refers to anything in England outside the Football League (and now also the Premier League).

Absolutely, and as far as I'm aware the NLP is about football in the UK, not Spain.

I concede this is always going to come down to opinion and I understand the logic of classing the WSL as 'League' but I tend to feel that the NLP promotes football outwith the domineering circle of fully professional men's football. In that sense the WSL should be included. The WSL1 teams are mostly pros now but in terms of interaction with media and fans are more like semi-pros or amateurs. They are still ordinary people who quite often have jobs outside the game.

Regardless, the question should probably be about what has been removed to fit it in.

Many conference players are full-time professionals who earn the sort of money most of us can only dream about, yet the NLP fills over half of it's paper with Conference content. So the fact that the top women players are professional is not relevant . Women's football is mostly played on non-league grounds and many of the spectators watch non-league football on Saturdays.

You're talking about men's football, not women's...

I'm with Cope1 on this as well. I suspect the women's game is at same level as NL's Step1-4 I in regard to wages.
Yes many are professional, but I reckon a large part of their wages are topped up by sponsorship (ALA top Speedway riders).
I don't see the point in having the coverage in the Football Paper.
The 8 page supplement was rather disappointing I thought, I haven't purchased since.
