Megan Rapinoe is a POS, although she is talented, she's got gall to represent a National team, and then pull that stunt. I was having my car transporter worked on in the Fontana, CA area the other day, and decided to go to Buffalo Wild Wings for lunch....1pm in the afternoon, and the place is swarmed with adolescent girls and parents when I walked in and caught the tail end of the game. It's got to be a California thing, I would never see that kind of patronage back home in the STL area for soccer at a sports bar. Maybe if the men's team made it to the final.

I wish we could field a Men's National squad, that we be more consistent but, that's a tall order. I used to watch the women's team play but, I won't watch them anymore. I think it's an absolute disgrace that any US citizen, blessed with talent enough to represent the greatest country ever, can't keep their ******* mouth shut. What the hell ever happened to representing your nation, and acting like an ambassador? Megan Rapinoe, GFY!! You don't deserve to wear the Red, White, and Blue.

Let's seriously place the blame where it belongs.

I'm not in any way upset with her. She has every legal right to peaceably protest.

I'm more pissed that the team didn't immediately kick her off. She can protest all she wants......from home, while she watches her former teammates play.

Teams are sending a message that individuals are more important. Break the rules if you're a star and, well, it's ok. We need you so you can beat your kids, beat your gf/wife, be late for practices, hang with gang members, drive drunk, rape women at parties, protest America on the field, dishonor the flag, service members, team and sport. All ok if you can help us score.

As long as we have other American women on the team who have worked their entire lives to get to this point, and who still support our country, our anthem, and our flag, I will support the team.

The actions of one pathetic individual shouldn't cause me to reject everyone else on AMERICAS team.

I don't watch the pre-game. Ms. Rapinoe thinks it's all about her. So do some folks here.

We know, it is her choice. The actions of Megan Rapinoe are pathetic though.

if megan is so disgusted with the USA, then why would she even represent the USA in soccer in the international spotlight? It is Stupid.


Wonder how many people view these actions wishing they had a chance to live in the USA

It's a long established fact that she is a self-important piece of ****. This is nothing new. While I am disappointed that she hasn't been removed from the team, at this point I'm going to put a positive spin on it and say that I'm glad to see that the rest of the team didn't fold under the pressure of the left, pull an NFL move and follow her lead.

I despised obama. It never occurred to me to do anything other than stand up and salute our flag. If hillary had won, I would do the same. It would never even be a question. My response to her is very simple. If you don't like the USA, leave. Go somewhere that you believe is better. I promise that you won't be missed.

Apparently she can't, according to some (see below). I agree with you. How she handles herself in her personal life---assuming she follows the law---is her business. Once she steps on the field she is representing her team and the USA and the rules change.

Saying "on the field" is like saying "It's OK to be a pedofile, as long as you don't do it on the field..". A violation is a violation. The IOC has rules that the USOC must adhere to. For some reason I can no longer find the USOC Athlete's Code of Ethics on line. Each sport may modify the rules by adding to them, but not remove any from the overall guide.

It's sad that one player with a grudge to express, against the President, can unfairly cast other members of a team as unpatriotic.
I agree with the bolded.

To the "I hope they lose" and "I'm rooting for Chile" people: Rooting for another country to beat the USA b/c I person (among 25) took a knee is a childish response.

The rest of the team should have gotten in front of her so she was blocked from view.

The team needs to handle this. Maybe a late night visit with pillow cases full of soap bars.

I hope the US team wins the world cup again, and they probably will as they are a very very talented team with pretty much the same players that played 4 years ago, but now are more seasoned while still young. It just a shame that it takes 1 liberal scum to make everyone and even the country look bad. She should be off the team.....easy as that. The other 10 women out there can play with someone different.

Yep, violence. I understood your post.

Examples:

A criminal shoots at a cop, violence is the appropriate response.

A guy rapes your daughter, violence is the appropriate response.

A soccer player kneels during the anthem, violence is the appropriate response.

I hear ya bro.
