    As long as they keep that collective, I see her staying. The only thing that may push her away from the States is all the blind hate she receives.

    Congrats from me as well! I hope the organization can continue to build off of this. At first there weren't many Flash heads on this board, but that has changed.

    Flash's got a quality organization there and a good core if they can keep it. Chemistry, facilities, pretty good coach, committed owner, and upcoming young players to supplement their stars.

    I can see Marta staying but I hope her salary won't be as large as it is now since it's a bit of a burden.

    Sinclair looses out to Boquete for POTY---she was robbed.

    Sinclair wins the POTM in the championship --Boquete was a non factor.
    REVENGE IS SAWEET!!

    Aaron Lines, a rookie coach, wins 2 more regular season games than Paul Riley--the WPS coach of the year, then beats him in the CUP game and takes the CUP back to his office in Buffalo.

    Ashlyn Harris, WPS keeper of the year, with the help of Scott Vallow,shows it was deserved.

    It was a fun summer....thanks WNY FLASH.

    No one was willing to sign her this season. I guess it comes down to a realistic number from her agent - sahlen. sweden probably sets the market. Her 1.5M AEG deal is up.

    My understanding is A-Rod handed WNY the game, so that means Riley did the better coaching job. From what I read, opportunities clearly favored Philly at the end of reg and OT. So, I'd probably stay with Riley as COY. I do agree Sinclair has been good from start to finish. But as I said, Vero is good for 1 goal if you can get that from her. kai and a-rod are philly's engine.

    I guess I'll get a better idea when i see the game but posters were pretty good at describing what was going on.

    A-Rod missed a chance or two, but scored a goal. I'm not sure how that's "handing them the game." The Flash had what appeared to be an onside goal called off, and the ref, judging by her actions, gave a second yellow while not even realizing it. (I'm pretty confident she wouldn't have given it had she realized given it was a 50/50 call in OT.) I actually thought the Flash looked better in the second OT down a player than they did in the first. You can make excuses both ways. In the end, the Flash got it done. Riley won the award, and congrats to him -- he's certainly a great coach. Lines' team won the regular season title and the championship, so I'm sure he's content. Good years for both guys.

    As has been said here, congrats to Sahlen and company. They put together a team quickly and were instrumental in the league continuing this season. And, he put together a great team while he was at it (and took on a hefty salary obligation of Marta's for the league). The marketing was late and light, and understandably so, but they grew as an organization as the year went on, people caught on, and in the end they led the league in attendance. A great year for them, and I think they've got a great foundation know to sell corporate seats, season seats, etc given the full off season.
