re: Yedlin may quit USMNT
I’d urge him to quit. Save that jersey and spot on the field for someone who wants it

I might've said the same thing before October 10,2017. I now 100% disagree

re: Yedlin may quit USMNT
Exactly

I grew up on the border, I remember back before shite hit the fan (9/11, cartels, etc) we would go on field trips into Mexico. I remember seeing a fricking bloated arse dead guy floating face down in the river. A guy i went to hs with is still in jail for human trafficking. People fricking die to get in this country. It’s far from perfect but it’s also far from the despot wasteland people make it out to be. Social injustice and inequality and police brutality and profiling is definitely real but some of these people need a reality check when it comes to just how bad things could be.

I mean just look at the horror stories you hear in this game: John Obi Mikel’s dad getting kidnapped, players families in mexico and Brazil getting kidnapped, look at what Enes Kanter’s family has been thru in Turkey (they finally released his dad). You hear about guys going back to Africa and the poverty and disease they encounter. I admire him for speaking up on his platform, but quitting the usmnt doesn’t do shite to solve any of the aforementioned issues

I hate this argument. It often leads to meaning "just deal with it since it's better than other places." It's not like he's saying he'd rather play for Italy, Spain, etc

That’s not even my argument. My point is he doesn’t deal with systemic racism here, despite what the press parrots. He is safer in the UK because they have a lower crime rate, not because the police are out to get them in the US. Black men murder each other at a rate higher than any other group, even accounting for poverty and other socioeconomic factors. Police kill more white people per year than black people and more unarmed whites than unarmed blacks. Multiple studies show whites are more likely to be a victim of lethal force by a police officer than blacks. Black people are more likely to be killed by a black cop than a white one. Black people have advantages in the country over their white peers, such as innumerable minority scholarships, affirmative action, and minority owned business get tax and other governmental advantages. Black people get into grad schools (medicine, law, dental) with lower GPAs and standardized test scores than their Hispanic, white, and Asian counterparts. America is truly the land of opportunity if you work hard and value education, and this is how immigrants from Central America, Africa, India, etc, with nothing to their name and no grasp of the language exit poverty in one generation. This whole “black people have it so bad in America” narrative is such a crock of shite to anyone who can look around them with an honest assessment. So there, that’s my argument. It’s all bull shite.

It always struck me as ironic when people got mad that Trump called some countries shitholes (probably a poor choice of words diplomatically), while talking up how awesome those countries are, and then those same people turn around and say how bad America is. If the US is so bad, why are people leaving those countries to come to the US?

That sucks, but could open the door even wider for Dest to get a lot of minutes.

re: Yedlin may quit USMNT
Like I said in an earlier post if he wants to sit based on his principles good for him. This seems like a bit of grandstanding considering there are no UMNT games scheduled and no meaningful games on the horizon. I am willing to bet come time for qualifying he is on the team.

re: Yedlin may quit USMNT
Am I just being overly cynical in saying that perhaps he recognizes his time is coming to an end with the USMNT, and he’s about to be passed by Dest or Cannon, and is saving face by taking this stance? I doubt that’s the case, but frick him anyway.

He wouldn’t really be missed. He’d make a couple of headlines the day of announcement, be mentioned during the next round of qualifiers and then pretty much be forgotten. He’s not Messi. Shit, he’s not even pulisic.

I thought about this too, but he's also only 26 and you need more than 3 outside backs over the course of qualifying, so I don't know.

Of course you do.

Do you read every post and then think, "what is the most gaping vag position I can take in this thread?"

I don't know. This is a really young team that could use a guy in his "prime" with a lot of EPL, WCQ, and WC experience.

I just want to win
Unfortunately we don’t even do that

Don’t even care if our players are Puppies at half time for extra strength to win games (even though we don’t)

Just win baby (even though we don’t)

re: Yedlin may quit USMNT
im still probably starting him at rb, Dest at lb if we had qualifiers tomorrow, but I still feel like you could plug a handful of guys in there without any real drop in performance at the position. It would be nice to rely on his experience given how many young players there are, but based off his comments I’m not sure you could do that anyway.
