Why is it that not a single article/opinion arguing that Hope Solo shouldn’t be playing acknowledges that she has already served a club suspension regarding her case? “Everyone just turned a blind eye,” “She’s faced no consequences,” “She hasn’t missed a second of action.” They all say this, and they are all wrong. The Reign suspended her temporarily and both the Reign and US Soccer released statements saying that more punishment would occur pending the results of her trial. And these sanctions were imposed BEFORE the entire country was paying attention, which is more than can be said for the NFL.
Those of us who follow women’s soccer have been aware of the repercussions all along. We don’t necessarily all agree about whether her sanctions have been strong enough, but we know she’s already had some sanctions and that others will be forthcoming if she’s proven guilty (you know, that somewhat important tenant of the American judicial system). It’s people who pay no attention to women’s soccer who are now (ignorantly and cluelessly) running their mouths about her playing status. And it’s the same media who normally never give women’s soccer a second thought shamefully leading this charge.
Either have opinions on women’s soccer all the time, or get out of here with your opinions. We have had this debate within our community for months. We don’t need your high-brow, elitist, misinformed opinions fueled by biased media reports written by “journalists” who have about ten minutes more experience with women’s soccer than you do. You can scream about “equal treatment all the time, not just when it benefits women” all you want, but when your opinions are misinformed, you just look stupid.
Feel free to get educated on the case and stick around to discuss it civilly with us. Otherwise, we’ve got women’s soccer covered. You’re welcome to see yourself back out.
Wow, this went faster than I though but here it is:

lmao i got 3 messages about this so let’s go jerks
sansa and jon are arguably the siblings least close to each other of the stark kids (like even sansa and arya have more interactions). jon is closer to arya, bran, and robb, because sansa takes after mom and isn’t jon’s biggest fan. so that’s where we start from.
but. BUT. after all the kids are separate, jon and sansa’s relationship changes. a LOT.
there’s a whole thing about jon becoming lord commander while sansa becomes a bastard—trading places (jon becomes “lord snow” sansa becomes “alayne stone”)—jon’s upward mobility versus sansa’s downward path.
also, they start to reference each other a LOT. sansa thinks everyone else is dead—literally, EVERYONE. except jon. “it would be so sweet, to see him again.” meanwhile, jon is like “winterfell belongs to sansa” because hell yeah hell fucking right jon snow is a feminist and doesn’t hold with ur priority on male inheritance. stannis literally offers jon legitimacy, which is something he’s always wanted, and he says “WINTERFELL BELONGS TO SANSA” oh my god kill me
The jungles of the Peten are hot and sweaty. Most of the best places for archeology are. Field seasons are especially hot, since they are always during the driest time of year so that the site doesn’t get flooded. Howler monkeys boom from the parched trees, which…
“True, the Nazis were trying to find the Ark of the Covenant so they could destroy the world,” Canuto says. “But methodologically and legally they were in the right.”
