It keeps getting worse for the US Women’s Soccer team. They went to Tokyo, lost in the Olympics, now back home to more demise.
The purple-haired and outspoken Megan Rapinoe is the latest to be in the heat of discussion on pulling her advertising, specifically from Subway. Sounds like she should practice more soccer and less protesting.

Subway franchise owners want purple-haired, anthem-kneeling U.S. soccer star Megan Rapinoe booted from her role as one of the restaurant’s spokespeople.
Numerous franchise owners and some customers, particularly from red states, have complained about Rapinoe being featured in ads for the chain, specifically noting the soccer player’s political activism and apparent disrespect for our nation displayed when she has taken a knee during the playing of “The Star-Spangled Banner” before games.
Late last month on a discussion forum hosted by the North American Association of Subway Franchisees, a Wisconsin store operator posted a picture of a hand-scrawled note from an irate customer taped to the front door of his shop,” Fox News reported over the weekend.
“Boycott Subway until Subway fires the anti-American … Megan Rapinoe, the creep who kneels for our beloved National Anthem!” the note reportedly said.
“We are so politically divided in this country and Subway should have done more careful due diligence, without a doubt, before choosing [Rapinoe],” said John Gordon of Pacific Management Consulting Group.
