Because they are very unsportsmanlike (over celebration and sipping tea to mock the Brits) and badmouth the country they represent. Disgusting.

Actually the best women hockey players on the planet couldn't beat boys Minnesota high school team that was having an off season (Warroad).


So the US Women soccer team would probably get cleaned up proper against some of the better high school soccer teams in the country, real easy I suspect.


Rapinoe has p-ssed in the punchbowl for me with her antics. I'm a soccer fan and might have rooted for them, but I can not with a dramaqueen like her acting so sophomoric just get the spotlight on herself (and her teammates backing her up).

That's why she is being so vocal and controversial against her own country, the U.S. She wants a Nike contract like Kaepernick got, and she will get it, as Nike is desperate to look "woke". This is all about money. She knows her soccer career is over with this World Cup.

Apologies to the Brits for having to put up with the OTHER team "captain", Alex Morgan, mocking them by pretending to sip tea after scoring a goal. Very unsportsmanlike and embarrassing to most Americans. Neither of these players have ANY CLASS. None.

Did you apologize to the Brits when Trumps embarrassing and over the top behavior was so bad it led to a 3 day protest in England? You really think a tea sip gesture is anything compared to some of the things Trump did?

Quote:
President Donald Trump’s state visit to the United Kingdom began with him firing off tweets from Air Force One calling London Mayor Sadiq Khan “a stone cold loser” and culminated with him posting tweets at 1:30 am London time on Wednesday denigrating actress Bette Midler as a “Washed up psycho.”

In between, the president called Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer “a creep” and urged his supporters to boycott AT&T because of his displeasure with how CNN covers him. He also did a television interview with Piers Morgan in which he demonstrated appalling ignorance about climate science and attempted to walk back a comment he’d recently made about Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle being “nasty” — by calling her “nasty” again.

Trump was accompanied to the UK by his adult children and their spouses, despite the fact that only two of them (Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner) actually have official government roles. The New York Times responded by describing the Trump family as “the American answer to British royalty.”

I noticed she did NOT play against England and when asked why, the coach repeatedly said "no comment". Very unusual.

After the game she claims a hamstring problem.

IMO, the coach pulled her for her actions.

Let's be honest - England is as much (or more) of an embarrassment as America the way they have desecrated their homeland with alien foreigners coming in setting up shot and running roughshod on that once-precious culture.


There are no "conservatives" in that country anymore - just liberals and extreme liberals.


With that said, I just wanted Trump to have the last laugh against the Rapinoe character, so wanted them to beat the Yankees.


Oh well..

I don't think it had to do with anything she said, or did during the Anthem. I think the coach wanted to rest her, and MAYBE she was hurting a little. However, I am just speculating.

Another poster with a reading comprehension problem and distorting what is said. Why do so many like you ALWAYS take things to the nth degree with outlandish hype?

What part of "NOT CRIPPLING" and "just enough to keep her out of the game, can't you comprehend?

Looks like I got my way. She did NOT play against England, the coach REFUSED to say why and when interviewed after the game, the traitor said becuae she supposedly had a "hamstring problem'"

And WE won WITHOUT her! Eat THAT!

I'm sure others will not see it this way...

USA GOAL !!! 9:23 in.
"when your match is against what is considered a less talented team."


You DON'T get to the semi finals with a a "less talented team"!
