It appears I was right (again). How many soccer players took a knee because this overbearing blowhard pressured them too? She’s toxic and should be ignored. Right Subway?
I’ve heard that too about bullying them into kneeling.
I’ve also heard a great many individual Subway’s want her out as the spokesperson.
In the mean time i’ve switched to Jersey Mike’s and Firehouse subs.
Good move. Are we not supposed to be anti bulling these days? Why does Subway support bullying?
Good question. Libs in particular have been railing against bullying for years and now…crickets.
I should say rather they have been against some bullying. They don’t want gays bullied but they have no problem with bullies from Antifa and BLM.
It’s been 7 minutes since the OP. I don’t like bullying regarding kneeling. People should kneel or not kneel based on their feelings, with no pressure.
I can’t speak for Firehouse, but there is no comparison between Subway and Jersey Mike’s subs. That’s like going from living in a tent to a colonial house. The true test of your willpower would be if it was the other way around.
Who didn’t see this coming? You knew at some point people that didn’t kneel were going to be seen as either against those that do, or not caring.
There is bullying on both sides. It’s wrong.
My favorite is the Subway BMT. Nothing is even close. Yum! But I can’t eat it as long as they support bullies.
Heresay evidence. Hope was not on the team.
"I’ve seen Megan Rapinoe almost bully players into kneeling because she really wants to stand up for something in her particular way, but it’s our right as Americans to do it in whatever way we’re comfortable with," she said while on All of Us: The U.S. Women’s Soccer Show last Tuesday.
But we are talking about this kneeling incident before the Sweden game. How do we know for a fact the Megan alone pressured the team.
bottom line is we don’t.
No. This thread is about Megan being a bully as I predicted she was. I doubt she is a part time bully or a reformed bully. Nothing suggests that she is no longer bullying. I still get bully vibes. Which is why I said this in the first place.
Should change OP title to she’s “Almost a bully”
.I think the kneeling thing can be very divisive," Solo added. “I’ve seen Megan Rapinoe almost bully players into kneeling because she really wants to stand up for something in her particular way.”
The timeline of Solo’s accusations, however, doesn’t seem to add up.
Rapinoe began kneeling during Seattle Reign games in September 2016 in solidarity with Colin Kaepernick, the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback who started kneeling during the national anthem to speak out against police violence and racial injustice.
Meanwhile, the USWNT terminated Solo’s contract in August 2016 after she called the Sweden’s Olympic team “a bunch of cowards” following a penalty shoot-out loss. She was also Rapinoe’s teammate on the Reign at the time, but left the team for “personal leave” following her national team suspension.
Solo never played for the USWNT or an NWSL team after the 2016 Olympics.
It needs to be proved she is still a bully. It’s great that you have feeling about it but it must be proven by facts not heresay evidence.
Sorry not proven.
Hope Solo hasn’t played professional soccer since August 24, 2016.
Megan Rapinoe did not start kneeling during the anthem until September 4, 2016.
Good is better at both of those anyway.
Even your article says that she wasn’t on the team when kneeling protests began.
