"WPS ends and then you get the opportunistic vultures that exist in both sides of the game who try and fling you an awful deal. Spare me. Then you get the people who never wanted WPS to succeed in the first place extending their 'condolences.' My experience in WPS was fantastic. I made some lifelong friends, played with the world's best and became the player I am today. Being the glass half-full person I am, I'm sure women's football will continue to inspire many people around the world."
