Awesome win for the USA.
How about the team recognize that they have a few seriously bad apples...to include the coach and run them. Seems to me that if your going to represent the USA on a world stage you
1. Should actually love this country
2. Be the best role model you could possibly be
3. Not criticized the President for something he is not... ( homophobia, transphobia, islamaphobia)
4. Whine about several nonexistent issues

I'd be willing to guess that the majority of the team doesn't want to get involved in a few bad apples antics. They want to kick a ball into a net and win doing it.
And please don't mistake this as me defending the BS politics a few of those ladies are spewing.
We just beat the rest of the world at their own game and that in itself is awesome!

I believe they do love the Country - which is why they are able to voice their OPINIONS freely.

Just because you don't agree with someone, doesn't mean they are not free to speak and act for what they believe. They aren't hurting anyone.

You can easily tell kiddos looking up to them to focus on how hard they worked, how they achieved their ultimate goal as a team, and were proud to represent the USA.

Really goes to show she ranks vanity well above patriotism.

Behavior like this leads to less viewers and ultimately less revue for the sport. So stop whining about equal pay when you make awful business decisions like this

My libertarian self just has to ask y’all what exactly freedom is?


If I gotta deal with a few jack wagons doing stupid things in front of a camera that upset my sense of well being but have little affect on my day to day or how I approach the world. Nah. I’m gonna carry on.

I guess we could just be more taliban and if it don’t suit our way of being we could just throw them off a rooftop.

We’re talking about an action that is protected under our constitution. At some point you just got to ignore the whiny children until they realize whining doesn’t work.

We’ve been through this as a country several times over.

Every one of these threads just adds to the google click bait.

Freedom is just freedom...you either have it, or you don’t. She does. Disgracing the very symbol of that freedom, to whine and ***** and complain about the freedoms you supposedly don’t have...is bull****.

She doesn’t have any kind of grand agenda, or cause....she’s just using the platform provided to her by this country, to whine about this country. Nothing more.

Make no mistake about it Rapinoe is doing a horrible job of representing the USA and she appears to set the tone for the image of the team that gets projected publicly. This is especially true with the media taking every opportunity to cover her tacky and classless language when speaking about President Trump.

Have I lost sleep over it or has it taken away from my quality of life? No
But my post isn't about that it is about her actions and taking the opportunity to exercise my constitutional right by expressing how I feel. She is taking a moment that the whole team and the country could unite around and talong a political scrap on it.
.

Just as some of the citizens of this country are unhappy about her words and actions I am sure she has several teammates that feel the same way. The difference though is they are having to deal with her antics on a more personal level and I'm pretty sure they feel like some of the luster has been taken away from their accomplishment as a team.q

I am not ready to go all Taliban on them but if I was her coach she wouldnt be allowed to act and speak the way she has.

Gentlemen,

Just to be straight with y’all. I’m not cool with these antics either.

But we gotta ask some hard questions as a nation.

Cheers!

Exactly!

In my opinion we shouldn't give the platform to the Kapernick's or Rapinoe. We should simply congratulate the players that worked hard and represent our country well, which is the majority of the players. She was on her way out until our president started his feud with her. Now she's a martyr for liberals.

She’s a gay woman, whom because she lives in America, is now worth millions! Yet she protests, acts a fool and runs her mouth about LGBTQIAFTYIDMVZ rights and how oppressive America is to their demographic/community.

She wouldn’t be able to do so IN ANY OTHER COUNTRY. America afforded her these opportunities. So for her to **** on that ****** me off, as an American.

She knows she's getting older and will soon be replaced by a younger, faster, more talented player. Just like those players who came before and after her.

Her future options are limited: become a college or pro coach for a woman's team and fade into relative obscurity, or maybe, if she can leverage the temporary spotlight to self-promote her way to a longer-term gig as a host on The View or some similar high-profile, high paying role in another spotlight, well, she's gonna ignore the "no I in team" mindset and attention-whore herself to fame and fortune just like Kaepernick.

She's burned up about 13 of her 15 minutes of fame and won't be relevant much longer.

And that scares the hell out of attention-whores.

Hard to believe some people here are defending her actions. Would you be ok with these same actions happening in the Olympics?

It's always been a rule that people represent well the team or company they work for. Why do some people all of a sudden act like free speech gives people the right to act a fool and make their team/company look bad?

It is not something that happened all of the sudden. The First Amendment gives Americans the right to act like a fool and say whatever. It is then up to their team/company to decide if it is worth it to keep that person on their team/company.

My question is why is it ok now? In the past most people agreed if you didn't represent whomever you worked for you were simply fired. That could be a company (private or public), a city, county, or Country.

It's complete retardism to disrespect the Country you play for. And even worse IMO for whoever is in charge to not put a stop to it.

The people in charge...the coaching staff ...all agree with her 100%. There may be a couple girls on that team that disagree but they cant speak up if they want to play. 1 girl ( the best American in her position) spoke up and she was dismissed. Fact is, these days its fashionable to dis this country and half the population.

And, without the idiots words/actions would anyone really care about women's soccer? I also suggest the men's champion should play the women's champion for all the marbles, seeing how the demand is equality...........

It's not a matter of whether a person likes women's soccer or not. It's a matter of minority groups becoming so pushy with their agenda that it's their way or else. The USWNT is just an example, but other minority groups are quickly following suit. If you fall into one of these minority categories, you are pushed to think like these radicals or else you are a racist, sexist, or whatever.

This is the liberal disease. Just like a cancer, silently attacking small areas, until one day, it destroys the whole.

Negative. And I didn't mean to imply anything of the sort. But I get where you are coming from. Once again, I will say I don't agree with what that dingbat is doing. And I put much more value on people like you that did serve.

Who pays the salary of these 'USA Team' players? I tried google but equal pay is all that comes up. I normally would search harder but I figured one of you would know quickly and I have to work late tonight!
