    They are pushing this dumb
    Equal pay crap as the reason she has to play in Russia
    There’s lots of players who played in foreign countries and didn’t get arrested

    You and your stupid people woke crap. I'm not saying WNBA players should get equal pay, but women certainly should get equal pay in most professions where they do the same exact job as their male coworker, whether it is nursing, acting, or any other profession where the pay favors men.

    Few years back wasn't there a Marine who crossed to Mexico carrying loaded weapons breaking Mexican law and was detained?

    Because the same people b****ing that Griner deserving her imprisonment because she broke a foreign country's laws were defending this dude saying the US should use it's power and clout to free him immediately. If I remember correctly this incident was used to frame Obama as someone who hates service members and doesn't have their backs.

    What is the difference between those two situations where they have empathy for one dude but not the other person? I'm just trying to figure this out here.

    Britney ain’t LiMelo in China
    Russia has all the cards in this one so I don’t know if there’s anything that’s going to happen soon

    Trading back the Merchant of Death should net us more than griner. Maybe Biden is soft on guns.


    BREAKING: The Biden administration is in early negotiations with Russia for a prisoner swap to get Brittney Griner home.

    The swap would be in exchange for illegal arms dealer Viktor “Merchant of Death” Bout, who is in U.S. custody.

    Griner has been in Russian custody since February after allegedly finding cannabis vape cartridges in her luggage.

    Seems like a lopsided trade. I didn’t know Bill O’Brien worked for the Biden Administration.

    And trump got A$ap Rocky out of Sweden for beating up a lunatic fan

    Yes in America she gets to be an American
    She’s in Russia thinking she’s Michael Jackson
    But she’s just a Stranger in Moscow

    Russia is a major extra money attraction for WNBA players. This will sour future WNBA players

    I doubt it. So long as the money is still good -that is in doubt with the Ukrain invasion-, they'll still go.
