The End Of The Road? WPS Suspending Operations For '12 Season
The WPS is “suspending operations for the 2012 season,” according to a post on the Twitter feed of SI’s Grant Wahl. The league sent an e-mail to players that said the legal battle with former magicJack FC owner Dan Borislow “has diverted resources from investment in the league" and forced the suspension of the ’12 season. The U.S. national women’s team Friday clinched a spot in the ’12 London Games, and the Washington Post’s Steven Goff wrote, “Feels like 2003 when, on eve of Women's World Cup, WUSA closed.” SBNation.com’s Bruce Ciskie wrote, “Got to think this is the end of pro women's soccer in the States” (TWITTER.com, 1/30).
