I am also fed up with the press giving people like Ms. Rapinoe coverage beyond her playing ability. I wonder if she was praising President Trump, would the coverage be the same? Singing the national anthem with your teammates or standing when it is played at sporting events should be a privilege regardless of what your political views are if you are an American. If you don't like our country, you are free to leave at any time. In the meantime, learn the difference between protesting against a politician or political party and our country.
