After getting sentenced to nine years in a Russian prison, the talk surrounding Britney Griner has gotten eerily quiet.
The WNBA continues to be loud about it, but other than that, there doesn’t seem to be that same push to get her freed as many asked for while she was going through her trial.
Since she has been detained since February, many have debated whether or not other high profile athletes would be stuck in Russia, if placed into the same situation.
That led to a sports writer suggesting Tom Brady wouldn’t be suffering the same outcome as Griner.
“To the great credit of the WNBA family, they have not been calling for an expanded war in Griner’s name but instead are pressuring Biden to exchange however many prisoners are necessary to secure her freedom. Yet, in the broader culture, we are normalizing Griner’s hell.”
