The question of Marta

As a startup it is important for the WPS to control its expenses and with Marta’s reported demands of $400,000, a house and an SUV, should the league agree to her demands, it could find itself on a slippery slope of alienating the US WNT players.
Marta is an exciting player but how do you explain to Rampone, Wambach, Lloyd, Chalupny and Solo, all Olympic gold medal winners, that combined they are worth what Marta will get?
Who has done more for soccer in the US, Marta or Wambach? The league first must invest in the US players and control expenses.
Be prudent and frugal, remember WUSA.
