Hope Solo's Suspension Makes No Sense

”Taking into consideration the past incidents involving Hope, as well as the private conversations we’ve had requiring her to conduct herself in a manner befitting a U.S. National Team member, U.S. Soccer determined this is the appropriate disciplinary action.”That quote comes from US Soccer’s statement announcing that Hope Solo would be suspended from the USWNT for six months.The decision comes 12 days after Solo’s comments in the wake of the USA’s quarterfinal loss to Sweden at the Olympics, in which she called the Swedes “a bunch of cowards” for bunkering in and playing defense (a strategy which ultimately won them a silver medal).US Soccer president Sunil Gulati said Solo’s comments were “unacceptable and do not meet the standard of conduct we require from our National Team players.”Gulati and US Soccer seem adamant that the punishment is primarily cumulative, and that the suspension is less about what Solo said and more of a “last straw” after years of PR (and HR) headaches.
