Discussion: Hope Solo Suspended From US Soccer Team For 6 Months Following Olympics Comments

Solo called the Swedes “a bunch of cowards” for focusing on defense
rather than attacking the three-time defending champion U.S. team.
Sweden ousted the U.S. 4-3 on penalty kicks following a 1-1 draw in a
quarterfinal match.

What a dumbass comment by Solo. A team that recognizes the opponents strengths and comes up with a winning strategy to deal with that deserves the win they get. Maybe Solo should be questioning why her team wasn’t prepared to adjust to that strategy.

Solo’s mouth has always been her greatest enemy. This time it could be permanent, as there is talk of contract cancellation.

BTW, the 2015 suspension was for being drunk and belligerent to the cops after appropriating (stealing?) the team van. Her husband was driving, and was arrested for DUI.

Well, I guess she must have really hurt their feelings. Couldn’t Sweden have simply countered with “Stick and stones will break my bones, but names will never hurt me?” Six months suspension? Maybe they should stop calling it “Women’s” Soccer and start calling it “Polite Young Ladies’” soccer.

If a guy said that no one would care.

At least she didn’t lie about what happened.

There goes her spokes model position at Nike.
