What They're Saying: Megan Rapinoe

"The award just doesn't hold a lot of weight when you've got someone on the list I've never heard of. It signals to us and it signals to the rest of the world that FIFA doesn't really care."

    Deyna, or record-setting Sam Kerr? Hmmmmh, FIFA, maybe you should poll the players, clubs and coaches instead of drawing straws.

    Looks like she, Megan Rapinoe , needs to educate herself with new generation of players. Read Venezuelan  Women's National team and Florida State women's varsity team...she is a sophomore there , FSU,  and brealing all kinds of records.

    If Megan Rapinoe never heard of Deyna Castellanos is because she did not watch the U-17 championships in Costa Rica and in Jordan.
    Deyna has been scoring amazing goals from an early age. Watch then on You Tube.

    Oh man, where to start.  An old adage goes something like "Better to keep your mouth shut, and let people think you're a fool, then to open it and show them you are"  How embarrasing that she doesn't know who Castellanos is. Just another example of a selfcentered publicity seeking ego maniac.  Why does the press keep giving her the opportunity to try and grab headlines???
