Rapinoe celebrating like she just scored the go ahead goal in the World Cup Final to make it 9-0 in this game was hilarious and embarrassing


Especially considering she played like hot garbage for essentially the entire game. Then she celebrates like hell for scoring one goal amidst the bakers dozen we scored against the worst team on the planet.

LMFAO. Pathetic.

Watching on mute while on conference calls - why was the NGA goal allowed? At least one of the views showed pretty clear deflection off her hand...

I was really looking forward to watching this World Cup and cheering on the US but The Un American POS Rappino is really making it difficult by going over there and showing her ass. I hate that she is ruining the enjoyment of the game.

There are legit reasons to dislike this team

But the way you express it shows you have deeper issues with women's sports than those

Rapinoe is really the big one. You are playing for the United States National Team. Choose some other way to protest rather than the anthem/flag protest. Or if you really want to protest your country, how about going all the way and sitting out playing for the National Team? Not willing to go that far huh?

It really amazes me how much one thing that 4.3 percent of the team does (did, apparently) gets so many people so angry towards the entire unit.

Especially some posters who would have mocked the hell out of those kinds of people a few years ago.

People's tolerance for this shite would be different on a domestic pro team, so this is a pretty rare situation. If someone at the 2012 olympics was upfront about refusing to honor the anthem/flag because they didn't like Obama, I would have been pissed about it.

Of course, that person would have been ostracized by the other olympians and likely removed, which is another difference we don't have in this case. Nobody took a stand against Megan's fit, which isn't the norm.

I highly doubt that. How many NFL players have called out Kaepernick by name (current NFL players, not teenage Nick Bosa)? Or said anything other than some extremely bland statement about patriotism and how they wouldn't protest themselves?

Most would go about their daily lives, and even if they strongly opposed it, the past two years have shown that people on social media have much stronger feelings about this than the actual athletes.

ETA: I really don't see people from different sports saying much, like a weightlifter, fencer, or cyclist. Similarly, if a cyclist got a medal and knelt during the anthem, I really don't think a more high profile US athlete would say anything, if you mean the larger field of American athletes.

There are two reasons for this. One, they are all highly focused on their sport and training and curating their brand for sponsors so they aren't going to wade into something like this. I also wouldn't expect many of them to post a photo of a kneeling Rapinoe and write "Yasss Kween" on an Instagram post.

Two, they are generally a very different demographic than 35 year-old southern sports fans and have different priorities and concerns.

I mean, Kaepernick isn't in the league, is he? Multiple teams changed rules and took other action to avoid alienating supporters, correct?

I'm not really talking about the other women condemning Megan. I'm talking about the organization cutting out the obnoxious player to avoid alienating supporters. Of course, if Megan was loudly and profanely pro-Trump you would have other players condemning her, most likely, and I'd be surprised if she were able to keep her place on the team. But that double standard isn't anything new and is largely a different conversation altogether.

Kaepernick not being in the league is about management, not the players.

Did they? The Dolphins created a rule about standing and then walked it back. Jerry Jones said some stuff about players not kneeling and that seemed to stick, but I can't remember another team doing that. What really happened is after Trump called them Sons of Bitches, a bunch of players knelt for a week, it became a talking point for a while for both Trump and ESPN, some people shot their TVs and burned jerseys on Youtube, and then it kind of fizzled out while the league just waffled on what to do.

Malcolm Jenkins and some guys stopped kneeling after the NFL wrote some checks, others thought it didn't go far enough, and continued to kneel, and the media just kind of stopped covering it throughout the 2018 season even though a smaller number of players continued to kneel, either because the NFL asked them to stop focusing on it or because of general fatigue on a situation that just continued to carry on without a real resolution.

And beyond Rapinoe, it didn't really move at all to other sports, from what I remember, except for a back-up catcher in MLB.

Here are all the rules.

My guess is the players stopped doing it in the NFL in 2018 because it became a rule

Also it looks like USSF adopted a rule that they all stand shortly after Rapinoe did it 2016
I don’t watch much women’s soccer outside of the USWNT in the World Cup.
But I’d assume Rapinoe hasn’t knelt since 2016

I don’t understand the fuss. She stood respectfully during the anthem yesterday and didn’t sing. In every professional sports match I’ve ever watched, at least one of the players isn’t singing along with the anthem (or worse, songs the wrong words). If not for the people making this mountain out of a molehill, this would be a complete non issue and would have lost any steam it originally had.

As stated above, many of the people complaining the loudest clearly have other issues with women’s sports in general.

I am almost positive the NFL backtracked shortly after and had no anthem policy last year.
