Re: State Finals returning to over-the-air TV

Won’t this hurt b-ball attendance even more at state?

Re: 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup Thread

Imagine while serving as a spokesperson for your company you started dropping F bombs, you would be fired. Who did the Blues fire? I hear and see multiple players in every sport cussing daily. In fact, a player for the Netherlands was caught in the finale telling the ref to “F off”. I’ve never seen...

Thank you. That gives me your answer.
Bad if someone I don’t like does it. Justified if someone I do like does it.
Again, think what you want, but putting words in other's mouths is no doubt the worst. :roll:

Re: 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup Thread

Your generic questions, which are 360 degree's all over the place, have no value in getting back to the entire thread's point of evaluating if the women are fairly compensated in comparison to the men. No? Thank you. That gives me your answer. Bad if someone I don’t like does it. Justified if someo...

Re: 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup Thread

I don't agree JD. People have called out the Blues. It's also in no way an apples to apples comparison - as the Blues are > 80% an international roster. Canadian/Russian,etc. So you are against the Blues, Dream Team, and president doing these things or not? Are you against all Americans cussing? I ...

Re: 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup Thread

Usually don’t agree with Tribe in almost anything but we obviously do here. I still think most of the angst is because it’s the women’s team. Sadly we still live in a country that wants women seen and not heard. It’s okay for the Blues not the USWNT. It’s okay for the Dream Team, not the USWNT. It’s...

As far as the F bombs, the Blues aren't representatives of their country and also aren't trying to pursuade anyone about anything.

How about the 44% decrease between 2019 and 2015 Finals, JD. . .you keep ignoring that point.
I’m just posting what I just saw. I have no idea what past ratings were. Not ignoring anything.

This WWC also beat the World Series last year except for one game.

Re: 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup Thread

Go watch the 1992 game between the Dream Team and Angola, and get back to me on how the two teams are similar in the way they celebrate every score. I just read an article about how some though the Dream Team was ruining sportsmanship and running it up too much. But then said the other teams wanted...

Of course they didn’t. We celebrated the US dominance and showing the world how awesome we were. The blowouts were a part of that. We love US superiority—depending on who it is of course.
Yep

Re: 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup Thread

I honestly don't give a rip about anything Megan Rapinoe said, I just ignored it mostly. The real issue I had, is disappointment over mocking opponents while repping the country. Not a good look. I know some think it's cute and funny to make the US look bad because they think the US is a dirtbag co...

Re: 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup Thread

How would the USWNT perform vs the field on the men’s side? They probably wouldn't make it out of stage play in an U~15 tournament. Exactly. And even if people have a problem with that perfectly fair question, if the field was equally competitive on the women's side, which it isn't. The most lopsid...
