#2 Climate change scientists are saying the phenomenon of over enthusiastic glee is more of a syndrome brought on by... well, changing climate. The same environmental factors caused the Thai team to weep on that particular day and caused the American girls to breastchest bump and laugh.

Gender experts are saying it goes deeper. That it is caused by the sport itself. A male province since for ever, soccer is irretrievably too masculine and delivers an adrenaline rush and a high when your physical prowess humiliates those trying to outdo you.

"It's to do with this ball. It brings out toxic masculinity in even the opposite sex !"

Some of those ladies would appear to not be so opposite.

#4 F'em both, f'it all.

First, I'd bet a pile of francs that marketing has gone to each and every team encouraging over the top celebrations of every goal.

13-0 is a whomping. Get over yourselves Lebron.

Played against the best team ever to take the field and got wholloped - crying? get over yourselves and be glad you had a chance to take on the best.

And, yes, if the boys had done this they would be scrutinized too. In fact, between that statement and kool-aid hair I just lost all interest and I like high level competition, daughter and I were going to catch the games we could. I'm not on board with this crap.

#5 Some of those ladies would appear to not be so opposite.

I have a ranch to bet that steroids are absolutely rampant in woman's soccer and tennis.

soccer is irretrievably too masculine
I see what you are doing there, and still I laugh.

#6 Wouldn't have happened if the Thais recruited a few lady boys transgenders on the team. But then all the lesb1ans on the US teams would walk out in a huff.

#7 Who will the All Blacks demolish in this years Rugby World Cup?

#8 If you can't compete at this level, you shouldn't be there.

Get better or get gone.

#9 I understand the thoughts in #8 but it is anything but classy to be poor winners like this.

Do you also get your jollies by beating up 5 year olds or the special needs team? The whole idea of the world competitions leads to this do we need another Jamaican Bob Sled team?

#10 The real shame of this US women’s soccer team is not their ruthless will to win or wild goal celebrations – it’s the fact they’re paid so much less than the men despite being so much more successful

#11 Call them human shields. Bring in the B52s. Mass murder. Don't worry, it's morally OK as long as you call them human shields first.

#12 Piers can suck it. Americans don't care all that much for Soccer. Maybe we will if the teams keep doing really well. Maybe we will when Football goes away because of micro-concussions. I'm not holding my breath. When we suddenly take an interest salaries will go up (men and women) and the world will look back on the glory days when the US didn't care.

#13 Those women need to learn to be gracious winners.

And I'm going to repeat my call for Herb to get a time-out.

#14 And when you dilute the quality of the tournament by adding extra (fringe) squads that would not have participated in years past, well, there you have it.

#15 Couple of photos on the link look like a few American players might be willing to help boost the spirits of the Thailand players.

#16 I watched the entire match. There wasn't a single obnoxious celebration by any of the USWNT, so whoever's saying that did not watch the game.

#17 A few more thoughts - Thailand was badly outclassed in every metric - height, size, speed and skill. My prediction was 7-0 but once the 2nd half began the level of physical conditioning between the two teams became eyepopping as well, so the ass kicking wasn't a surprise at all.

#18 Just more America bashing. Germany beat Estonia 8-0 in a European Cup qualifier yesterday (Tuesday). Crickets.
