Have you wondered why the NFL started to fine players for doing dances and strutting after a touchdown? It's because the fans want to watch a team sport. Fans do not like unsportsmanlike conduct from hotdogs making it all about themselves.

Otherwise I really don't care that much, she clearly has a right to her views.


Agreed.
Our freedoms allow people to do the most stupid of things.

Hardly anyone watches women's soccer. It's boring.

Goal differential MATTERS. So every goal, in addition to being a magical moment for the player scoring it, is actually advancing their cause in the tournament itself. If the world wants to lament the slapdown Thailand took yesterday, then the world should take Julie Fowdy's advice and instead of criticizing America for being great at the women's game, how about criticize nations who don't put as much support behind their women that US, France, Sweden, Holland, etc do? We sue as hell seem to be cool with clowning the men's team for not being able to hang on the world Cup level, but we clown the women now for kicking too much arse?

Alex Morgan pointed out that the US women's team is damned if they do, damned if they don't. On what they stand for or don't, what they say or don't, what they do or don't, etc. Problems the men never seem to have to deal with.

Also, nobody would dare criticize if the team we slapped down 13-0 was more traditionally great, like France, Sweden, Brazil, etc and they were just having their worst day ever on our best day ever. Nobody would say a freaking thing. And in the men's game, for sure nobody would say a freaking thing.

And here's Rapinoe, doing her free speech thing as an individual, and the commentary being shared with the team because 13-0 and poor Thailand. How did the best players in the world suddenly become villains because they played and acted like the best players in the world? One player kneeling for the US anthem or one celebration after the wrong number goal? Really?

Appreciate them for how great they are, and stop with the sanctimony and righteous indignation.
I agree with everything you said except her protest. You do not turn your back on the flag because you don’t like the president. Protest the president but not the flag. It’s a divisive move that just creates more division and does the same thing I’m sure she blames Trump for. I have enjoyed the ride, but this put a bad mark on it for sure.

She was disrespecting the flag and the anthem at games, before Trump was elected, so making this about Trump is a ruse.
