I will say that common courtesy is something that many people, regardless of their political leanings, have forgotten about at times.

She will be selling vibrators on cable after this tournament is over. Very few people care about women's sports. She has no future after this. Gotta get her 15 minutes now to get ratings on ESPN 26.

France, Sweden, Brazil, Britain, etc never did this to anyone... ever, even against tiny countries. It is really poor sportsmanship, especially the celebrations after every goal. Very embarrassing. And it would be embarrassing in any other sport too. Imagine if in a basketball game one team was up by 50 points, and it would celebrate each basket scored... Yes, technically you are *allowed* to do it, and it is not against the rules to be an a**hole, but you shouldn't really do it, especially in an inconsequential group stage game against the weakest team in the group. That's how you get the fans all around the world to root against the bully with no class.
By the way, our men's team actually has fans around the world too, and foreigners root for them. They may not play as the best of 'em, but they always show good sportsmanship, resilience, and great heart.

I was still shaking my head at the hypocrisy and outright delusion of claiming that criticism of the womens teams actions is unique to them being women and wouldn't happen to mens teams.

Then it dawned on me, we're dealing with posters that don't really follow sports and so they don't realize it's actually commonplace.

Still makes it sad and hillariously ironic that they have to blubberingly cry about being picked on because they're strong women.

I saw Megan's celebration after the game was over. It was ridiculous and over the top. She is an embarrassment to the U.S. in many ways. An arrogant, self centered, ugly, angry person.

A 13-0 score is nothing to be overly proud of. It’s the sign of poor coaching in my opinion, to make sending a message out more important than good, clean play.
Poor coaching? They made all the subs they could, and goals matter in the group stage. As a soccer-playing female, surely you know that? You expect the coach to say, "Okay ladies, we are up pretty good on them, let's just pass the ball around on our side for the next 30 minutes. Wouldn't want to upset Thailand's players and coaches, or get too far ahead in the standings!".

How ridiculous. You sound like these MLB fans who get angry at the Dominican guys wearing jewelry, or people flipping a bat. "It's bad sportsmanship!"... Jesus, you guys are truly the "snowflakes".

That being said, sure, maybe the celebrations for the players who scored more than 1 goal were a little overboard. Who cares?

Since when is it required to sing the national anthem? First it was you have to stand, now itís you have to sing. Iíll make sure to tell our NSIs they are unpatriotic since they donít sing.

Sounds like they made real asses of themselves with their stupid celebrations over a game that no one cares about.

Our B high school boys team would destroy them. Utter stupidity.

This is the United States of America -- we allow people to be disrespectful Jerks or Jerkettes.
She/He/It are perfectly free to hate the USA, hate the Flag, hate the Constitution, hate our entire system of Government and certainly to hate the President and every single citizen that voted for him.

It's a great Country and I tend to feel sorry for those filled with hate and bitterness.
It's a bitterness that erodes the soul ..... and sometimes even ends a career.
