Hope Solo tells analyst Brandi Chastain to 'lay off'

Hope Solo, goalkeeper for the U.S. women’s soccer team at the Olympic Games, wonders just whose team analyst Brandi Chastain is rooting for.

Could it be the fans are more focused on the gold than the players are?

    Welcome to the professional sports world Hope. Announcers are always critical. Ask any baseball player, football player, golfer, etc.

    Hope, this isn’t your father’s Olympics when the Miracle on Ice was important. American media have been overtaken by haters; used to be that they supported the common man; now just the liberal elite.

    Geez, girl, get over yourself. Commentators are commentators, not cheerleaders.

    “@brandichastain should be helping 2 grow the sport”. No, put a decent product on the field and the sport will grow itself, the media won’t have a choice but to cover positively as it will benefit them, too. The WNBA is all but forgotten because it’s not watchable. Don’t do the same.
