#3 My mother would have taken them over her knee and spanked them. But I suppose those days are long gone.

#4 ...And when the ratings for the Olympics crater, we'll be told it's because we're cultural Neanderthals.

#7 ^ Ya know, I might buy that for some members of the team, but others have previously self-identified as treasonous skanks.

#9 Carli Lloyd response makes no sense as clearly some team members are looking one way, and others are looking in a different direction. So what if *some* are looking at the flag, some clearly were not.

#11 NOT TRUE!. Some were facing a US flag visible at one part of the stadium, others were facing a US flag visible in another direction in the arena. All were respecting the US flag per the US Olympic team.

#12 More to do about nothing. You are supposed to face the flag, not the singer. They all were facing a flag.

#13 Here's an idea - how about having the flag and the anthem singer on the same side of the field?

...but others have previously self-identified as treasonous skanks.

I may be wrong about it, not having dug into it recently, but Rapinoe's the only POS on the team as far as that shit goes.

#14 How about having the team face the same direction. If there are two flags pick one.

#15 A bit more background on said event from background from Epoch Times

tl;dr: Seems to be a bit of an over-reaction

#16 Go wear a different uniform of your choosing.

You want to salute and play for your shitty stupid ragtag rainbow flag?

Fine. Leave the Stars and Stripes alone then.

Go play for your idiotic United Colors of Benetton Froot Loops Republic.

You and we occupy different realms, different countries.
We don't give a fukk anymore.
Go your own way.
Get lost.

Just GTFO and stop polluting our dear Republic. Goodbye.

#17 IMO, When you represent the United States, proudly do it. Get outside yourself and don't make it all about you. A lot of brave people died who believed in freedom. Have some class.
