Former UVA star Sinead Farrelly at the center of the NWSL scandal involving

her former coach Paul Riley.

It is absolutely disgusting to read these types of stories and repeatedly see patterns of cover-ups and silence leading to more abuse as coaches and other staff members move on after allegations amd continue their abuse.

The head of the NWSL Lisa Baird and General Counsel (both women) resigned yesterday (the head of the NWSL was exposed yesterday when Alex Morgan tweeted a copy of an email exhange between Farrelly and her regarding Riley and she said the investigation had been concluded woth no repercussions).

I remember Farrelly well... she was an amazing player and I wondered why her career was cut short.

This also illustrates the significant power of the media, as nothing at all happened until this story was published. Kudos to the Athletic the exposing the abuse and cover up.
