Women's Professional Soccer, a league that includes the Boston Breakers, will take the 2012 season off as it attempts to settle a dispute with an ousted team owner. The league indicated it hopes to return in 2013.
Dan Borislow bought the Washington Freedom before last season and moved them to South Florida, renaming them magicJack, after the company he owns. Things quickly turned sour, and Borislow sued WPS in August. The league responded by accusing him of "unprofessional and disparaging treatment of his players to failure to pay his bills."
