Following the "cowards" remark against Sweden, US Soccer has suspended Solo for 6 months.

Good for USA soccer.  Just as embarrassing to the US Olympic team as Lochte, in my eyes.

She's none too contrite about it:

"I could not be the player I am without being the person I am, even when I haven't made the best choices or said the right things. My entire career, I have only wanted the best for this team, for the players and the women's game and I will continue to pursue these causes with the same unrelenting passion with which I play the game."

++++++

Blah, blah, blah.  Best choices?  She's advocating behaving like an idiot.  Her commentary is drooling with self-absorbed arrogance.

Its hard to say if US soccer is serious or not since there were no important matches coming up in the next 6 months. I guess we'll see what happens if they can't find a replacement who is as good as Solo

Apparently she won't be eligible for selection until February. She also took indefinite leave from her NWSL Seattle Reign (then leaving the team all together 3 days later) before their match against the Portland Thorns (Christine Sinclair's team).
