    When winning is more important than playing the game this is how it ends up, everyone is trying to get their picture in the paper. The coach needs to do a little coaching.

    hey everyone...listen...clearly they are victims of an oppressive country...clearly America hates black people so much, that we pay them, hold them up as icons, and send them around the world to REPRESENT us on a world stage.....


    America just isnt for black people...we hate them...which is why we torture and oppress them with money and opportunities that people in other countries can only dream of.

    they have it so rough here, they cant even afford to leave, i mean, im sure if they had the means, they would get on a plane in an instant to move to a black paradise like Uganda, Rwanda, or Liberia....where there isnt a white person around for miles to oppress them.

    but us damn whites just cant help but keep them down.

    Yeah, fuck all of that.

    You want to protest or dont like some shit going on - do it on your own fucking time. All you're saying to everyone by doing this shit in the middle of that game is that you're an out of context attention whore who can't read the room.

    What are they even whining about this time?

    Black 'equality' in a game that has more ethnicity in it than anything else on the planet?

    Not being paid like professional men at the club level who bring in revenues on jersey sales that eclipse whatever your entire team 'earns' in a year?

    Not being paid like the professional men at the national level when it was found out that if you were, 1/3 of you would actually have to take a fucking pay cut?

    People not giving a shit about womens' sports because when compared to men's sports its like watching a bunch of 13 year olds play; I also seem to remember the entire women's team getting their ass handed to them by a high school boys team once. So there's that.

    I don't even know what you're whining about this time. All I know is that I don't fucking care because if I was told what it was, it would be some completely bullshit self centered garbage that made you come across even more idiotic than you currently do. And thats already a high benchmark.

    Lets not let the irony of a guy playing the anthem that did work during WW2 just feet away from these skanks be lost on us either. I can't even begin to describe the epic level of self imploding whiny wreck full of feelings, safe spaces and excuses their generation would be if they had to endure what his generation did. Holy shit.

    They need to be boo'd, removed and made an example of for anyone who thinks this is the time for this shit.

    Literally, EVERYONE is laughing at you.

    Dont blame the athletes, they are just using their rights...right or wrong, as much i think they should all be dragged out and shot

    who we should blame is the Olympic committee for allowing it and not taking action

    weak leadership is what has allowed this and they are now paying the price for it with backlash from US citizens

    next, sponsorship/funding weakens and then they are removed from the committee

    i personally hope a tranny or PED user wins every gold just to piss off the libs even more

    But Wait!!! There's more!!!
    Keep an open mind and read this.
    Each and every soccer player went to the gentleman and personally thanked him and they all signed a soccer ball for him.
    Apparently, some faced Pete and some faced the flag (which is the proper thing to do).
    Just so you know, the right is just as much into the click bait and let's be offended as the left is.

    While there is much to criticize about some individual athletes behavior, I don't think this is one of them and I sure wish news outlets and the like would take a deep breath and verify the facts before hyperventilating about the latest outrage.

    The flag was to their right...some faced it. The WWI vet was in front of them, some face him. All thanked him after the game and presented him with a signed ball.

    Let's not be part of the Chicken Little crowd, right?

    "To be clear, no one turned their back on WWII Veteran Pete DuPré during tonight's anthem. Some USWNT players were simply looking at the flag on a pole in one end of the stadium. The players all love Pete, thanked him individually after the game and signed a ball for him," the organization tweeted.​
    "This is respect. Each and every player waited for their opportunity to come up to Pete post-game before getting on the bus, said hello, thanked him and signed his ball," U.S. Soccer added.​

    Agreed.....

    Plus, you mean to tell me that with all the money flowing into the teams, they didn't have a choreography coach to instruct all of them how to march out onto the field, where to go, what positions to take, which way to face ? C'mon Man.........:rolleyes:

    Oh really...hahaha....you watched a stadium crowd on TV when the anthem plays? LOL

    Yes, they should have done that.....absolutely....no doubt. But the criticism wasn't that they weren't facing the flag but rather that they were NOT facing the WW II vet.

    Frankly, I bit of a tempest in a tea pot to me. I have bigger things that I reserve my outrage

    I was never racist or cared about who you bugger until now. I'm pretty sure I'm not alone as I'm beyond sick of this
    then your a fucking idiot.
    Isn't that the exact thing that "they" do because of a hand full of racist cops?? They see XYZ bad people doing bad things and judge everything on that.

    nah, you are being overly simplistic here. We're talking about an 90% voting for a guy cause he's black, an entire group that doesn't stand up and say 'enough, judge on action and not past wrongs' etc etc. I'd actually say you're the idiot for not seeing that.

    It's simple, unless I start to see, en masse, black America turn towards MLK and away from the current trend, I'll absolutely lump them all in. Sure there are outliers but the bell curve never lies.

    you get that right?

    the stadium crowd isnt representing their country.....unlike the players, whos literal job it is to positively represent their country.

    also, OPs post is clearly criticizing them for turning away from the flag......says nothing about disrespecting the vet.

    and yes, i think the fat slob in his seat while the anthem plays is a fucking disgrace as well.

    I think your logic is seriously flawed.
    1st - Blacks didn't vote for Obama (whom I assume your talking about) because he was black they voted for the democratic candidate. And up to that point Romney who ran against him got the largest % of black vote in modern history until Trump.
    2nd - You need to actually read and understand MLK and not just the basic talking points. I will go into that further but it would be in your interest to read about him and not the sugar coated version the media feeds you.

    Glad to see Sweden kicked the shit out of the US Women's Soccer Team, Captain Carpet Muncher's team protesting against racial injustice by taking a knee must of been what they trained for instead of training to win the game. Colin Kaepernick not only fucked up the NFL he also touched the women's soccer team.

    I feel sorry for the few patriots on the team that are hitched to the purple haired bitch for their captain, she has an agenda that isn't just winning soccer games. Some standing some kneeling for the anthem shows a kernel of division, not a cohesive team with one focus. Without that focus you'll never perform as champions.

    Who the F.. cares about these asshats? How about we have a goldarn USA Olympics for Vets, LEO's, EMT's and active duty guys and tell the rest of the world to FOAD?
    Oh geez, I forgot about the redneck category. That could be vastly entertaining.
    Let's start a "suggest your Redneck events" thread. This could be epic. And nobody will beat WV, TX or AL, .....well maybe Floriduh.
