Hope Solo Appeals U.S. Soccer's Ban

Calling Sweden's WNT "cowards" for playing a bunker-style Olympic quarter-final against the U.S., goalkeeper Hope Solo was reprimanded and THEN banned by U.S. Soccer.

Some may have heaped praise on Sweden's WNT for their strategy in playing a less than entertaining and less than challenging style of play, and while those opinions were not complained of, Solo's opposing complaint was attacked,

Criticize Solo if you want for lack of sportsmanship and class, but don't attack her for being candid with her opinion. She had the right to feel the way she did and to express those feelings -- and NOT be banned by her national team.
