Default I hope the USA soccer team loses every game

U.S. women’s soccer star Megan Rapinoe ignored the national anthem before the Women’s World Cup game against Thailand on Tuesday.

Rapinoe, who is openly gay, had previously said she would never sing the national anthem again as an ‘f-you’ to President Donald Trump. She announced that she would “never put my hand over my heart” or sing the national anthem in an interview with Yahoo News in May.

If she snaps a twig, I won't be sad.

Women's soccer is a sport?

Seriously, what does her having being gay have to do with the team sportsmanship and patriotism? What a selfish dyke.

**** 'em.

Hope they lose.

Is she the only protestor, or does the entire team feel that way? If my daughter was a team member, I wouldn't want one America-Hater ruining my daughter's Dream......my Son's Dream has already been ruined >destroyed.

In a similar thread I posted the Goliath/David advert. made me fume.

I hope that a bunch of trans "women" decide they want to play soccer then all these SJWs can feel the wrath of their idiocy when they're replaced by, those who identify as women. Fuckem.

Me me me. Ultimate narcissist. She shouldn't be allowed the privilege of wearing the jersey with those 3 letters on it.

JFK with his stupid (by today's standards) "ask not what your country can do for you"..... must be rolling over in his grave.

It bothers me when professional athletes do it, but I do give them some latitude to express their opinions (although, as I've mentioned before, not "on the clock").

But when you're representing a country, when you've been honored with that spot, at least do the bare minimum to show some appreciation for it.

Frankly, I don't want anyone representing ME that doesn't appreciate the honor.

If you could either receive $5 or have the woman's soccer team win the World Cup, which would you choose?

I thought them running up the score was bad enough. Disgraceful.

Pretty sickening her thought process is, using the national spotlight to ridicule the POTUS.

This is just another example of "party over country"....she can't be proud to represent the USA and what as a nation it has stood for. She needs to make it all about Trump and disrespect the country.

IMO she should be booed heavily and showered with disrespect. Because she is gay doesn't give her immunity from criticism.

She's exercising her right.

I disagree, think it's wrong, etc. and a terrible decision as a representative for America.

Expressing political opinions in an article is fine. Expressing them on the field is wrong.

I get it, soccer is boring for most, but the women routinely outdraw the men in broadcast ratings during the world cup and the olympics.

I believe that a sports person who disrespects their country's anthem in a protest, is projecting that they think the country is bad and can never change. If they want to protest the President, then focus the protest on the President and not the country's anthem.

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

Exactly. This is a national team and she represents that nation, not herself or her own goals.

Within the context of being a member of a national team, she has no "rights" to take actions that can violate the Code of Ethics for national team members. This could easily fall under the category of using the position on the team for personal gain. As such, she should be booted off the team ASAP.
