Hope Solo suspended from U.S. women's soccer team

Longtime star goalkeeper Hope Solo has been suspended from the U.S. national women's soccer team for calling the Swedish team "cowards" after the Swedes eliminated the U.S. from the Olympics. The suspension, which also involved a termination of her contract with the U.S. Soccer Federation, was promptly lamented by Ms. Solo and denounced as sexist by the team players' union, which vowed an appeal.
