I see a lot of rhetoric lately about the women’s U.S. Soccer team being unsportsmanlike and unpatriotic, so stop. Right here. They are heroes. If you are going to get your feathers all ruffled because they cussed a bit in the thrill of their celebrations, please remember that many of you still call Kobe Bryant an icon, just as you do Ben Roethlisberger…both of these athletes accused (and I believe rightly so) of rape.

Kareem Hunt was accused of three violent incidents, proof positive, but Browns fans are slobbering and panting in hope he will be allowed on the field.
