WPS Season Canceled

12

Mere hours after the US Women reaffirm their dominance in the CONCACAF Olympics Qualifying tournament, WPS has announced the cancellation of their 2012 season. This is not entirely surprising considering the well publicized struggles with the owners of MagicJack reducing the league to only 5 teams (FIFA guidelines specify a minimum of 8 teams to be considered a league). Expected or not, it is a sad confirmation. Yesterday we watched Alex Morgan run circles around the Canadian defense. We watched Abby Wambach use brilliant positioning to create open goals. We watched Hope Solo stand her ground against a world class Canadian offense. Today, they are all unemployed.
