Sorry, sweet pea, sport is always about winning, not about anything else, not even giving the fans what they want
Hope Solo rips Swedish women's soccer team for playing like 'cowards' and says the best team didn't win
Complaining that the other team did not play to your strengths is for losers.
"Solo is heated about the tough loss, as any athlete would be, but it isn't the most gracious way to bow out either." Great athletes may take the time to understand how, and why the opponent won, but they know that a loss is always personal, caused by the loser failing to play the game necessary to win.
