Maybe, but I've met a lot of athletes over the years, and I've found most of them avoid punching down to the extent that Morgan and her teammates do. David Beckham is one of the nicest guys I've ever met. Earlier generations of women's national team players are generally respectful as well. UFC fighters are surprisingly reasonable. Not to generalize the other direction -- there are, of course, a lot of people whose competitive spirit boils over on occasion. And I'm a hypocrite because I'm a fan of both Duke (Coach K) and Liverpool (Klopp), neither of whom is known for being kind to refs.
