    Why don't you want her on the team? Do you hate America?

    That pretty much eliminated any chance I would watch even the highlights.

    We can win without her. I don't want a thug like her representing USA.

    Maybe he wants to get paid like Dwayne Wade did? I think he is in love with himself, and his dreads.

    Pretty sad thread of responses. Such hate and ignorance. For the record, her mother is ill. She wasn't even able to watch Griner during the F4.

    Shameful group of "sports fans" you are.

    I didn't read the original link, but I have read another story that stated between "illness in her family" and her school schedule in the summer she would not be able to participate in the Olympics. She expressed interest in future Olympic games.

    I don't care so much about the "shamefulness" of it, the complete lack of funny in this thread is the real tragedy in all this.

    I don't have any love for Griner, but don't try to throw someone down and fail if you don't want to get popped for it.

    Agree totally, Barncastle got what she deserved and I've occasionally wondered if the coaching staff had encouraged it. I don't blame Griner one bit for throwing the punch no matter how "wrong" it may have been.

    Barncastle got exactly what she deserved, IMO. Especially considering that garbage had been going on all game. Playing like that is eventually going to get someone hurt, and I'm much more satisfied to see the injury be a broken nose for Barncastle than something worse for Griner in that situation.

    People can feel free to believe whatever they want about her gender (however ignorant their opinion may be), but Griner is no thug, and certainly not based on that incident.

    She threw the punch because she was called the N word. They kept it quiet to protect Texas Tech.
