Women’s soccer. Finally...something people care about less than men’s soccer.

It's not just the trump bashing. Many of the team members (not all) act like jerks on the pitch. (And yes, I know many people think all soccer players act like jerks.)
But many of them act like overbearing idiots, not good sports at all. I am sure they are the team that the world likes to hate because they're so obnoxious.

Honestly, how good can they be when a team of 15 year old boys beat them?

I have followed Women's Soccer and Volleyball and Tennis since 1990. Megan Rapinoe has always been a hater. Now a fluffler for "hate".

Yet they demand equal pay to men and draw only a quarter of the attendance?

Sounds exactly like proggy democrap math.

Everyone is entitled to their opinion about the behavior of the USWNT. I don’t care for Rapinoe’s act on the field, and I also don’t care for her using her “fame” as a soapbox for her political views.

But it should be noted that the USWNT didn’t “lose” to a boys team. There was an informal scrimmage, which was very likely set up with lots of specific scenarios, and no formal flow of a real game. It wasn’t a full game, so there was no winner or loser. A score was reported as “5-2” for the boys team on the FC Dallas website. (The boys team was a U-15 Academy Team affiliated with FC Dallas - basically a development team for the pro team). There wasn’t an official score, and we don’t even know how the tally came about.

But we do know that as competitive as the USWNT is, if they actually lost a game to this boys team, they wouldn’t have stuck around for pics and autographs. And since that’s exactly what they did - stuck around for pics and autographs - we know this wasn’t a real game, wasn’t a real score, and was a scrimmage with purpose of planning out some things, working on some things, and having some fun with a group if dedicated young soccer fans.

But because of how the USWNT has behaved (at least a few, anyway), it’s been fun for conservatives to take this little non-story and turn into a club to beat over the heads of these women, women soccer players in general, women athletes in general, and ultimately to make all females feel bad for having the gall to take up a sport. Please don’t participate in spreading the hatred by perpetuating the lie that the USWNT “lost” to a boys team - because the truth is they didn’t.

Thanks for that. I haven't commented on that particular talking point as I knew nothing about it.

Even if true, my opinion would be "so what?" Don't conservatives believe that there are differences in physical attributes between men and women? Acknowledging that that difference exists takes nothing away from the FACT that the USWNT is comprised of athletes at the very pinnacle of their sport. (That is, at least, until the PC crowd starts forcing women's teams to accept men who couldn't make the top tier cut in male sports playing as "trans.")

You can rightly criticize Rapinoe for stances and how she comports herself without denigrating what is the top team in female soccer in the world.

It was down by half from the 2015 match because of the time the match took place, this and multiple articles have stated. The 2015 match was during prime time, whereas this one started almost during the morning for us.

The fact that it was on when most Americans are not sitting in front of their TV’s has more to do with it than her disrespect of Trump, but if it make his fans feel better to believe it was, knock yourselves out.

In defense of Rapinoe, she looks like a 15 year-old boy so I can understand losing to an equal opponent...
