Further proof that Atlantans dont know their arses from their elbows. Then again, I wouldnt expect anything else from citizens of a city who tried to leave the USA back in the 1860s anyways.

If they are living here, Mexico must not be so great, huh? They choose to live in the US over Mexico, right?

In other words, if Mexico is so great that they need to cheer for them, then why do they live there?

To be fair, I don't doubt that American ex-pats still support the USMNT overseas, even against the nations in which they currently reside. What ticks me off is the way many Mexican fans who reside here root for ANY national team over the USMNT.

I have no problem with them still supporting Mexico. What I have a problem with is that they still hate the USMNT even though they are living here and taking advantage of what the US can give them and Mexico couldnt.

Probably because their economy sucks. Where you choose to live and who you support in football have little to do with each other when you are speaking of immigrants

If I got a job in canada next week that does not mean I support their team, and me moving there does not mean its a better country

If you are moving to a country to take advantage of what they have to offer, you should support their national team as well. If the country is good enough for you to live in, then you should support the country in their endeavors.

That should only be the case in a place with no immigrants
