Likewise. I think perceptions of the tone of critics is somewhat subjective. But I can tell you people were calling the team classless and disgracefu, etc. If you see the USWNT as gloating perhaps you would say it’s tame, but it is harsh when it is not earned IMHO. Also this team is a lighting rod of male criticism…
Common sense is based on logical fact and context which the people who are trashing the USWNT are missing. Fact: four of the seven scorers in this match were wwc debutants and you think celebrations are unseemly for that? Fact: a player tied a record of individual goals scored. That’s not worthy of being pumped…
It’s a World Cup. If I scored a goal in the World Cup I’d have a 20 minutes parade down the midline. You wanna blame someone? Blame FIFA for expanding the tournament to 24 teams.
Honestly. The lengths people are going to miss the point is baffling.
I really don’t want to be mean about this but when Charles Barkley and Michael Jordan were running up the score and mean mugging against Angola they were dinks but at least they were millionaire dinks who didn’t have to care what people thought.
Canadians getting high horse Morally Superior(tm)? WHY, I NEVER.
Americans not reacting well to gentle criticism? Whoda thunk it?
“Actually, it’s good to be a dick when you’re beating the shit out of a clearly under-matched opponent” is the worst and weirdest take Deadspin has been flogging since they trotted out “The New Orleans Pelicans have some sort of, uh, moral duty (?) to trade Anthony Davis to the Lakers because that would be entertainin…
Sure, don’t hold back and act like as much of an asshole as you can. That’ll help the sport. People like to watch that.
yes.. you got me.. im the guy who wants to start a war with russia
I just love the gall of Warriors fans, whom after seeing their 73 win team piss away a 3-1 series lead in the Finals then BEGGING Kevin Durant to come play for them, saying that the Raptors should have an asterisk next to this championship.
I never “got” my Ph.D. diploma because Florida State University said I owed them $60 after I’d paid them tens of thousands, and I said I’d see them in hell.
I don’t know about you, but I have serious anxiety about getting a fleshlight through a TSA checkpoint, so she stays at home. I can jerk off into a hotel washcloth filled with moisturizer and left on the room heater for five minutes for a couple days just fine.
How can you criticize a guy who is always pulling for his teammates?
I don’t think the issue is of cause-and-effect. It’s the pattern of entitlement and lack of boundaries that suggests a likelihood of carrying on as or more serious invasions elsewhere.
I can understand packing a fleshlight to use discreetly on the road, but it takes a psychopathic level of commitment to one’s masturbation habits to travel with a lifesize replica of a headless, limbless woman to fuck right there in front of others.
Not getting the actor’s likeness rights is going to hurt. People have been watching these characters for a decade now. They know what they look like. Stylized would have been a better choice than realistic without those likeness rights.
Missouri, a Trump voting hell hole, is thisclose to taking away womens’ right to choose. Their cops make a hobby out of shooting black people. Their fans call themselves “the best” and they aren’t being ironic. But I won’t say “Fuck St Louis”. Those hicks have done worse to themselves than anyone could do to them.
