Megan Rapinoe

I’m Embarrassed For EA Sports Over Their Attempt At FIFA 22 Women’s Ratings; How Is Rapinoe Still This High?

Another year, another FIFA game where it’s obvious EA Sports paid no attention to women’s soccer. The FIFA 22 women's ratings are somehow even worse than last year, once again proving the WoSo portion of the franchise is merely lip service to try to appease women without actually putting in any effort.

Hope Solo Blasts Rapinoe On A Podcast Claiming She’s “Seen Rapinoe Almost Bully Players Into Kneeling”

Former USWNT goalkeeper Hope Solo has stirred the pot and then some with her latest take about her former teammate Megan Rapinoe. The Hope Solo Megan Rapinoe comments were made during Goal’s “All of US: The U.S. Women’s Soccer Show” podcast.

If you would like to listen to what Solo had to say I have provided the podcast and fast-forwarded to the question that leads to her comments. The audio begins with the host, Seth Vertelney, asking Solo about her thoughts on the USWNT’s activism and the growing opposition towards the team.

What I’ve Learned From All The Hate Mail Supposed Carli Lloyd Fans Sent Me

I’m pretty used to getting hate mail these days. When you discuss human rights in relation to soccer, people get pretty upset and are not afraid to send anonymous emails spewing hatred toward me, which ironically proves my point more often than not. 

I’ve never gotten as much hate mail as I have this week when I reported on Carli Lloyd refusing to join her teammates in kneeling to protest the ongoing racial inequalities in the U.S. and around the world. 

Trump On USWNT: ‘Woke Means You Lose’

Donald Trump has a theory on why the USWNT failed to win a gold medal at the 2020 Olympics. His team sent a statement out criticizing the U.S. women for winning the bronze medal after beating Australia in a highly entertaining 4-3 third-place match on Thursday.

Trump, who has been banned from most social media platforms, suggested the USWNT would have won gold if they hadn’t been so damn woke.

Estados Unidos Se Despide De Tokio Con Un Gol Olímpico De Rapinoe Y Un Amargo Bronce

El plan de Estados Unidos en Tokio era ganar el oro y así convertirse en la primera selección femenina en ser campeona del mundo (Francia 2019) y abrazar la gloria olímpica en un mismo ciclo. Sin embargo, al final del camino, el USWNT debió conformarse con el bronce.

Las razones del downgrade son varias: el envejecimiento del equipo, la falta de renovación, las excesivas rotaciones del entrenador Vlatko Andonovski y finalmente el hecho de que el equipo nunca hizo suficiente clic como para responder a las expectativas.

Hindsight Being What It Is, USWNT Roster Selection Was Garbage — Also, We Told You So

Carli Lloyd was not good enough. Megan Rapinoe was not good enough. Alex Morgan was not good enough. Crystal Dunn was not good enough. Tobin Heath was not good enough. The USWNT was not good enough. 

Carli Lloyd running sprints alone after defeat may be the lasting image of the USWNT’s 2020 Olympic run, but her questionable inclusion on the team will be a talking point for years to come. 

Carli Lloyd Running Sprints Alone Is Heartbreaking Image Of USWNT Defeat

After a surprising 1-0 defeat to Canada ended the USWNT’s quest for gold in Tokyo on Monday, where does this squad go from here? Vlatko Andonovski assembled the oldest, most experienced U.S. side ever for this tournament, but the veterans all largely disappointed throughout.

If Ted Lasso Can Figure Out Offside, Why Has It Been So Hard For The USWNT To Stay Onside?

There’s a moment in “Ted Lasso” where the eponymous coach yells at an assistant referee: “How is that offside!? No, I’m asking you, seriously: Explain offside to me, it makes no sense!”

Part of me wonders if that scene was based on the true story of Vlatko Andonovski at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. 

Andonovski’s USWNT has had nine goals called back for players being in offside positions in four matches at the 2020 Olympics. The U.S. has scored eight goals that actually counted. 

It’s a major problem, but so far it’s yet to really cost Team USA.
