    You make a big deal about every athlete arrested on assault charges EXCEPT, Hope Solo! Why the double standard? This is supposed to be domestic assault awareness month but you’re very subjective in which incidents you choose to highlight? Should one infer that it isn’t domestic assault if the perpetrator is female? You must believe she’ll make a great role model for young girls if we are to believe your negative reporting is fairly applied.
