Arguments behind latest legal sparks in U.S. women's suit
| U.S. Soccer and the Women's National Soccer Team Players Association were back in Federal court on Monday. The Players Association slammed the federation's behavior in the labor suit as disingenuous,
its position alarmist and its filings misleading. The federation responded that the tactics it was facing were akin to asking the court to turn a blind eye so the Players Association could keep
pointing a gun at its head. Lawyers from both parties were scheduled to meet in court for the first time on Tuesday. |

|"I don't think we have that many ills to cure to begin with. There are no saviors out there. It's a sport that requires 11 players. It's not basketball where you only have five, where one or two
guys can really turn things a lot more. [Rookie Jordan Morris] is part of the team concept, and he's a good team player."|
