The world's game (according to US)

"Last week, the 22-year-old Marta was "drafted" by the L.A. franchise of the new Women's Professional Soccer league. The problem is, Marta is under contract to a club in Sweden and hasn't had any negotiations with the still nameless L.A. team. She didn't even sign up for any draft.
The WPS's Initial International Draft wasn't actually a draft in the traditional sense, a pool which players willingly enter. It was simply a way to give the new American teams the sole rights to negotiate with the foreign players on their fantasy wish-lists."
