BREAKING: WPS Suspends 2012 Season

The Women's Pro Soccer Board of Directors voted Monday to suspend the 2012 season. Over the last year WPS has been involved in a challenge of keeping enough franchises to be recognized internationally as a legit enterprise. Part of that has to do with the legal battle with a former owner (remember the whole magicjack shenanigans).

From the league:

The litigation has diverted resources from investment in the league and has forced the Board to take action, suspending the 2012 season in order to address the legal issues head-on before moving forward with competition

"We are deeply grateful to our fans and partners for the tremendous support they have shown for WPS, our players and the sport. With our supporters and athletes in mind, we are committed to complete the hard work necessary to resume play in 2013 and reestablish WPS as the premiere women’s professional soccer league in the world." - Jennifer O'Sullivan, WPS CEO

So, for now, here's your piece of history...
