She's blaming it on a medication prescribed for her menstrual cycle...the old "blame it on the period" excuse. Hmmm I think we've all heard that one before... Do you think she's telling the truth?

Hope Solo, the US soccer team goalkeeper, failed a drug test and received a warning Monday from the US Anti-Doping Agency. Hope Solo says she will still play in the Olympics.

    I don't care. She's HOT.

    Anyway, soccer is for girls.
  • jarb Somkey ... 2012/07/16 15:21:28
    Definitely for girls ...
    *the most popular sport worldwide
    *some of the most talented, skillful and fit athletes
    *only tiger woods and mayweather topping them in earnings (tiger due only to his sponsors and mayweather due to a once in a lifetime freak fight earning 32 million excluding all sponsors and promotions)
    *and the sport's real name is Football

    Association football and it SUCKS.
  • jarb Somkey ... 2012/07/19 15:02:20
    Association football ... really
    and because you lack the ability and and skill to play or understand the game does not make it suck. However the single sport that is most popular worldwide and generally has the highest paid superstars .... well you intellect surprises me even more, how did you get so smart and made such an excellent deduction friend?

    Practice. And observation. Now go fluff your petticoat.
  • jarb Somkey ... 2012/07/20 12:13:31
    i see you have a sense humour friend as i was obviously using sarcasm as you have no deductive skills what-so-ever and as of smarts ... sorry buddy however smart people like one Albert Einstein says "Insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results" i must be insane because as i come across idiots and their idiotic opinions i think today with facts and reasoning i will make one person smarter and the world better but with people like you devine intervention needs to happen before you can attain some intellect.

    Thank you for proving what i just said ... the strain it mush have been to come up with that come back. I mean since you truly lack intellect. Also don't you feel ashamed that you are not talented enough to play the same game you call a "girl's game".

    One of our football players (Dwayne Bowe) had the same issue with a diuretic he was taking. It happens.

    There are such things as "masking agents" in tests for steroids and hgh. A famous hockey goalie said he took Propecia, a hairline growing restoration chemical, that can lead to a false positive. So, how are we to know she wasn't taking both? She doesn't look like a typical female steroid user. She would have more hair and acne.
  • GG 2012/07/13 23:09:41
    I have those serious cramps during that time, so I understand.
    But I wouldn't know if she is telling the truth or not.

    Let's see, there is a list of BANNED drugs. She took one and now is doing the blame game. It's your job to do what's right.

  • Mike 2012/07/13 18:33:18
    not sure what the problem was...but has Hope been in the news about her drug problem....nope....I believe her....and I really think it matters not ...if someone wants to juice up their body to help them perform better.....what's the problem..??....No one ever said anything to Luciano Pavarotti about juicing up before every opera....???...It's a silly law...has no substance..

    i have no idea what having a period or being on period medication is like, so i'll take her word for it!
  • cmdrbnd007 2012/07/12 04:53:22
    It's a diuretic and would help with bloating associated with her period. As long as she was on her period when the sample was taken I see no reason to doubt her validity.
  • SamE 2012/07/12 01:07:58
    Have no reason not to.

    Some women periods have stronger cramps than others; she could be telling the truth.

    She tested positive for Canrenone. Canrenone is classified as a specified substance, so its presence in an athlete's sample can result in a reduced sanction. It is a diuretic and can be used as a masking agent since it can also flush your system of other drugs that actually would be performance enhancing.

    A diuretic could be a performance enhancing drug for sprinters, flush their systems and keep them lighter to run faster. It won't build muscle. Neither muscle nor lightness of body would help a goalie all that much.

    Also, the USADA is not a branch of the US government. It is partially funded by government grants, but it is mostly funded (and was created for) by National sports. It was created by and is basically an arm of the USOC. I'ts not your tax dollars at work, or the government involved in doping.

    The drug test is not infallible and there are things that can create a false positive. I don't know enough to make a judgement.

    I do believe her, and it would seem she would have the doctor and the scrip to back up her claim.
