    US Women’s Soccer Player Ignored The National Anthem As An ‘F-You’ To Trump
    June 12th, 2019

    Is this who we want representing our country?

    Hell no.



    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 Newsin May.

    I don't stand up for the national anthem and never had to during my playing days because the anthem is played when you are in the locker room. It must be nice to be an ignorant white male and have no problem making it through life.

    Again I hope that your daughter isn't judged as harshly as you judge. Karma is a bitch and you are due.

    Instead of whining about it, take a stand, and protest by not watching. Let’s see you put your money where your mouth is, because she is.

    Afraid she is not putting her money where her mouth is, under your protest standards. She would have to similarly decline to be on the team, in protest of them making her stand. She wants to play more than she wants to protest, at least in that manner.

    Though MAP may not like it, the same part of the constitution that prohibits the government from punishing someone for kneeling during the national anthem (it should be allowed on the national team), also allows a person, not matter their color or gender, to criticize that behavior with the same impunity. Fortunately, free will gives us the ability to ignore both.

    Not a very positive role model for our youth.
    Pathetic in fact.

    There is a big difference between what is right and what is legal. And what is legal depends upon what state or country you are in. God doesn’t parse behavior that way. It’s okay though because life finds a way to put people in their place. Racist bigots like @Sheriff Joe always get what is coming to them. It may take a while and it may come “unexpectedly” but it always comes and it is equal and opposite to the stuff that he puts out there.

    You are clueless. Enjoy your white privelage. You clearly don’t have a moral compass. Your day is coming and please remember that I told you so when it happens. And please don’t try to talk your way out of it because that angers those delivering the comeuppance.

    This is actually illogical, she has the honor of representing her country but she chooses not to honor her country? Not sure why she chooses to disrespect our freedoms and all those that worked to enforce our freedoms because she doesn’t like who the president is - presidents will come and go - some are great and some are horrible but our country is much more than that - her point doesn’t translate well

    those damn Canadians, who do they think they are!!?? I still don't have a problem with the celebrations. Would I have done it? No. Would I scold my kids for doing so. Absolutely. Most youth games I see, the parents and kids stop celebrating goals after the GD gets to 5 or 6. But, this is the WC and these women are under tremendous pressure to perform as a team and individually. Not like any of them are going back to Computer Science jobs after these games (unlike the Norway goalie, btw).

    Rapinoe has a BIG personality, and is clueless sometimes with her off-the-field judgment (she does not have a reliable filter). It's part of the reason she is not as marketable as other players. Morgan should know better and her sponsors will likely give her a little "advice".

    As for the games, Norway did not disappoint. Their midfield is fantastic and broke the French press many times. To think they have the best player in the World -- a striker nonetheless -- sitting at home is both unfortunate and a big relief to every other country side.

    Speaking of strikers, Spain needs one and until they find one, are not a threat to the U.S., France, Canada, or any other top team.

    MAP's Netherlands are a fun team to watch...Martens was her usual tricky self, Miedema is always dangerous but something is missing there. Haven't quite put my finger on it. The winger with the "cheetah" hairstyle didn't show up vs. NZ---maybe kharma for trying to be too individualistic or too focused on her look?

    I don't see a side without a strong 9 beating the U.S. That leaves France (50% chance), Netherlands (20% chance), Australia (20% chance), Canada (10% chance), and Brazil (3% chance).

    US looked really good against an unchallenging team.
    After pool play, it wil not be a cake walk.
