    I don't know about her talent level but she would have been a cancer in the locker room. It's not because of her faith, its because of her opposition to same sex marriage.

    If she really is good enough, they probably didn’t want the locker room issues her presence would cause.

    Same reason why we don’t recruit certain Defensive Ends.

    On one hand it’s a taste of her own medicine - intolerance. On the other hand an eye for an eye makes the whole world blind. I just made that up.

    I am simply in amazement that some on here call her a distraction because she is a Christian and lives according to her beliefs. Those of you on the Left are just so tolerant of the beliefs of others. By the way...that last sentence was a little sarcasm.

    There are all kinds of commandments. There are way more people practicing marital infidelity than are practicing being gay why doesn’t she make that her focus? Intolerance. It’s not biblical to pick one thing out of the Bible and try tear others down. She should refuse to support the President because he breaks a bunch of biblical teachings. Nope. She chooses this one. Selective outrage and selective dedication to Christ.

    Could it be because she just wouldn't do her job?

    She was being paid to play by the WNT and she refused to wear the uniform issued by the team.

    No idea here, but the “evidence” for this claim seems to be some random guy claiming that she’s a heck of player.

    However, everyone even near that team is a heck of a player - it’s the national team. Who on that team was unqualified?

    Yeah was gonna say this too. How many goals did that D give up in 7 games? 3? Seems like she was hardly needed.

    Same sex marriage (homosexuality) didn't even make the top 10 (commandments).

    Regarding marital infidelity, this one is easy. Marital infidelity is not made to be heroic. People aren't called to celebrate marital infidelity. It is something that is done in shame or otherwise in complete lack of regard for the covenant of marriage. We are called to forgive sinners, not to celebrate their sin.

    Go GATORS!

    How quick, straight white Christians have been to jump to victimhood status, is an insult to actual victims throughout history..

    Not surprising they want to be pushed to the front of the line...just another form of privilege..

    She's white? Or is that just a THFSG auto-response.

    They didn’t need her. Shrug.

    She's been capped only a handful of times and hasn't played for the team in over a year. In fact, they're just recycling the same grievance story from about a year ago when she was left out of the team for a tournament. We even had a TH thread on it!

    That's the thing, a bunch of people who don't pay any attention to women's soccer are basically saying Pele has been left out of team. She's played like 7-8 games for the national team and is 26 (which is basically your prime), did nothing to make her self undropable in those games. Compare that to some of the other players on the team of the same age who have 50 appearances or more.

    I think he means the people offended on her behalf. She isn't making the story.
