    didn't confucius say 'It's a fine line between clever and stupid' I dunno, maybe it was Aristotle.
    In any event, Dollars come with publicity and notoriety. Want to up your profile? Get Noticed.
    The Women's Team seems to be doing this, effectively.
    Good for them. They put in the work and get the results. I've paid a little attention along the way. Aside from a little coarse language, (which was apologized for) I haven't noticed any problems. I find sideline celebrations to be tacky in most leagues, but almost required to achieve celebrity.

    Others have mentioned that they don't take social cues from athletes. Neither do I - but children and young athletes do.
    We're all entitled to think for ourselves, and to Free Speech. Maybe that's a good lesson especially for young female athletes.

    Being forced to remain quite about things like this. My inner self will be attacked by small thinking people who find a place in the discussion to define my intentions and my soul as being evil and my heart black.

    This women destroyed a large portion of potential fans with her preacher mentality. Now she can move forward with her "opinions". Bless her heart.

    Well for starters f bombs in public are obnoxious - and that is exactly how things work.
    Similarly if you reveal your ignorance - you reveal your ignorance as a matter of fact.

    I doubt 'fans' are her main priority.

    She seemed pretty humble on meet the press. I cant fault her for using her platform.

    Anyone who disagrees with her or finds her disagreeable can do just that, disagree.

    Perhaps. But humility isn’t a “sometimes” or “situational specific quality.

    Not to everyone and not in all situations

    I find myself agreeing with a majority of your posts, so this is not to antagonize.

    She's female, visually striking, opinionated and appears to embrace a popular spirit of inclusivity.

    Somebody disagreeing with your personal assessment on how the world should be, doesn't automatically render them ignorant. You don't get to cherry pick who's ignorant and who isn't based on whether they agree with you or not.

    Entire thread is a bad choice for TGP. There are far better places to have these conversations, TGP is NOT one of them.
