    Member of the world champion women's soccer team. From the first exposure, she seemed to be more talkative than any of her team members and it just snowballed from there. Her face (and voice) seemed to be everywhere and on this Sunday, the pinnacle: Meet the Press.
    I can't remember any other athlete of world stature since Ali to enjoy such exposure and i'm wondering why her? Opinions?

    She was on the team last World Cup and didn’t have a big voice. This year, she’s the captain, she’s a dominant player, and a main voice in USWNT’s pay protests. Who else should be the spokesperson?

    Don't you mean IBTL? There's no way the politidorks will be able to abide by the board rules on this one, they can't help themselves.

    You honestly can’t think of an athlete with more exposure than a lady 9 out of 10 random selected American’s couldn’t name when shown a picture? Not Jordan or Woods or LeBron or like a thousand others since Ali?

    Did she play in all 4 championships? I sure don't get that comparison. She was even asked about running for office.

    She strikes me as a miserable human being and a terrible narcissist.

    I would be one of those nine. Only her name sounds vaguely familiar.

    What is the controversy? I'm guessing she's outspoken about something or other.

    Never heard of her, then again I don't like sleep inducing sports where you can't use your hands and it's acceptable to feign injury to try to influence the outcome of the "game".

    It will probably go as well as past threads have gone on Kaepernick

    I guess athletes make different choices about how to utilize their 15 minutes of fame.

    I had to check her image with a name for a match. I was very familiar with her image, it's everywhere. I just don't know why.
