Solo is suspended six months.


Quote:
"I could not be the player I am without being the person I am, even when I havent made the best choices or said the right things. My entire career, I have only wanted the best for this team, for the players and the womens game and I will continue to pursue these causes with the same unrelenting passion with which I play the game."




Interesting approach.

Quote:
Rich Nichols, the executive director of the players union, called the sanctions by U.S. Soccer excessive, unprecedented, disproportionate and a violation of Ms. Solos First Amendment rights, in a statement to Sports Illustrated. He vowed to appeal the punishment.


Quote:
We also question whether this action would have ever been taken against a male player or coach, who, in the heated moments after a frustrating defeat questioned the tactics of the opposing team, Nichols said in the statement.

So she's suspended for six months & her contract is terminated? So does she negotiate a new contract in six months?

So they ignore her prosecution for domestic violence but suspend her for mouthing off about the Swedish team?

Good to see US Soccer has its priorities in order. Rolling Eyes

This wasn't just about the Sweden thing. That was the straw that broke the camel's back. This is about the mouth, and about the DV, and about everything else she's ever done to make herself and US Soccer look bad.

So it's just convenient timing, evidently.

A year ago it didn't matter to them in the slightest. They blew it off with Jill Ellis saying about the domestic violence on the eve of the World Cup "Ill be honest, weve moved on. Shes been a fantastic player and teammate. None of that has even resonated with us, and Im sure many of the players arent aware of it.

And they wrote a long letter full of legalese and excuses to a Senator on why they were doing nothing.

But hey, they needed her for the World Cup. This year they needed her for the Olympics.

Her misfortune is that they don't need her now, no big competitions. And she let through a couple goals and they lost at the Olympics, so her luster is diminished. How nice of her to provide them a trivial excuse now and a chance to cover their ass by finally doing what they should have done a long time ago.

US Soccer's reaction from the beginning has been pathetic.

It's like an NFL team allowing a star player to play in a Super Bowl after beating up his wife and then suspending him from Spring drills for criticizing the instant replay official and pretending that makes it OK.

I think it's time US Soccer starts grooming new GKs in time for the 2019 WWC. Just dump Solo from the national team permanently & just let her play in the NWSL.

Is the USNT for soccer supported by the US Government? If not, how exactly were her 1st Amendment rights violated? The 1st Amendment doesn't give people the right to be jackasses without consequences. All it means is that the Government can't be the administrator of those consequences (with quite a few exceptions where they can be).
