    Her chief disqualification as a legitimate journalist is her use of "ICYMI" to begin a paragraph. If she can't be bothered to write out "in case you missed it" (there you go - you may cut and paste that, lazy writers), I can't be bothered to accept her logic (of which there is a small amount).
    On-line posts, sure. A journalistic article; I think not.

    The inequality of 'respect and pay' isn't a judgement that's dispassionately obvious. The men generate much more revenue, and therefore are compensated differently. [I love that T&F has near-equity]. The respect is earned and all the Neanderthal men who don't see that the USA women play a much more 'beautiful' game than the USA men, don't get any respect for their opinion.

    A very bad look! Now you will likely have the rest of the world rooting against you...and you gained nothing from your celebrations.

    I didn't think that gaining something was one of the reasons players celebrate.

    I have no problem with plenty of scoring or plenty of celebrating.
