    Hope Solo had a bad night, which inspired this:

    Hopefully this is the nail in her coffin that keeps her off the US team going forward.

    Seriously. All she had to say was that first part. I even wouldn't mind all that much if she said something along the lines of "thought we were the better team and the better team lost". I could deal with that.

    But her statement was extremely classless. I'm embarrassed as an American by her response there.

    Dude. If you are embarrassed as an American every time Hope Solo says something moronic, that's pretty much 24/7 humiliation. Time to burn your flags and move to Canada.

    Yup, understand what you mean. She's had a career out of this. It's moreso because of the stage it's at and the global platform they're currently on. The whole world is seeing it.

    Great article today in the Washington Post on her classless antics.

    What Solo's severely lacking intellect misses is that it's the opposite of cowardly to invite the other team to control the entire game and relentlessly shoot on goal. If anything, Sweden played a very courageous game of defense. But alas, that concept flies far to high over her inflated ego and head.....

    Between Solo and Wambach's comments on US National Team players not born in the US not wanting it more, the women's team just has a bad culture they need to revamp.

    Don't think it's a bad culture, think it's just a few really ignorant eggs.

    I feel like talking that much shit about a team you lost to only makes you look worse. Because if you lose to a team that you think is "cowardly", what does that make you?

    Be magnanimous in defeat.

    Lost to England with their goal in the 89th minute, alas, on a day when it was 14° in Red Bull Arena.

    Alex Morgan should not start for us. It's not particularly close.

    This team needs to be handed over to Heath, Williams, Brian, Pugh, and Press (if she isn't having a bad month). I also think Huran is a really damn good player.

    Morgan is just living on the past and her cuteness. dont get me wrong, she's got an abundance of both. But time to move on when it comes to US starters.

    Sadly, I agree. She's a good shooter but doesn't have the talent and techniques on the ball that the other players you mentioned have against other top level teams. Though, she's the most marketable player of the team.
