It seemed a natural progression to become a fan of women's soccer. And I would rearrange my day to watch any game televised, even friendlies.
Unfortunately that all ended during this years World Cup.
The world class athletes that were chosen to represent our Country proved to have no class.
The msm took it upon themselves to focus on an individuals unpatriotic behavior and ignorance in order to drive their already divisive narrative even further, and she obliged them with unfettered passion.
Sure, there may be patriots on the team, but they stand by mute as one individual pushes her own agenda ignoring the very reason she is there.
As athletic ambassadors they represent the United States, any form of anti US sentiment should not be tolerated. It doesn't matter if a person doesn't like, or even hates, the President. As a representative they have to put those things aside and play for love of Country. Not money. Not a "cause". The fact that the focus was on everything except their accomplishments on the field proves that they are clueless as to why they were there.
The media goaded the teams mouthpiece, exposing her disdain and ignorance, and giddily published every shameful soundbite. It is irrelevant how talented a player is, her comments were and are unacceptable for the position she holds, and she needs to be dismissed. As do ANY players who feel that they have to right to behave in such a manner when representing the United States.
The msm was more than happy to push the anti-Trump and "equal pay" agenda of the progressive socialist left because it is THEIR narrative. Politicization of the World Cup and the US National Team has put a stain on them both.
The facts hold no quarter in the minds of these individuals and the team mouthpiece proved that with her answer to the "equal pay" narrative- which was for people to buy ore of their stuff and tell their friends to do likewise.
The mouthpiece expects this to occur after she metaphorically took a dump on the United States. Their brand is now irrovocably soiled.
That is why they need to disband the team. They need to either field a squad of patriotic amateurs or no team at all.
Until that happens I for one won't be watching any of their games, I'll find something better to do. I'm sure they won't care though, after all, they aren't playing for the fans, they have already proved that much.
