“After fighting for years for equal pay from 2015, the players went on and agreed on a less than equal CBA. They continued to believe in the promises of the federation. They were outclassed, shunted, and then finally, after pumping the brakes and doing a 180 in the fight of our lives, they decided to show up to the party and they got shoved.” – I hope solo
“It was really tough and challenging to play the last few years. To be completely honest, I hated it. It wasn’t fun to get into. It was just for the love of the game, really, for me. I wanted to win and I wanted to help the team, but the culture within the team was the worst I’ve ever seen.” – carli lloyd
