Today,sure ain't like the old days when olympians were proud of our country and flag,politics has ruined many if not all sports for alot of Americans today,personally I find the womens soccer team disgraceful,why would we send these ungrateful children to these games only to disrespect our country on world stage?it's sad.

That has nothing to do with why they are taking a knee or wanting to burn the flag. But yes. All this BS has ruined sports for me. I see the NFL is going to play the black national anthem before week 1 games again. What happened to 1 national anthem???? Or maybe they  should play a white national anthem then too and an asian and hispanic. Man this irritates me. Roger Goodall needs to go or learn to grow a pair. All this wokeness is going to cost them money. I know I have quit watching.

The blacks are hollering they need their own national anthem and it should be played at events. Isn't this exactly what they have been protesting and demonstrating about for years?! The divide between whites and blacks?
But they want their own anthem? Sounds like deepening the divide and jut making it more racist to me....
And who's causing the divide again?  :scratch:

1) If you represent a country at the Olympics. Don't play if your not going too.  :bs:

So far, it's not the "World Nonbinary sports event"! 

2) If you want to call this the "Melting pot" of all nations then you sing the Melting pots Anthem.

We an't got no time to sing all 195 of them before every event!    :mad1:

No time for any sports events anymore, as you said, after we get done singing everyone's "National Anthem".
Hail Freedonia!  :surrender:

We're discussing Olympians and protests/displays of inappropriate or perceived beliefs as related to the country from which that subject may be a citizen of at the moment, and their alleged beliefs of what they consider appropriate to display. World champion football teams aren't on the agenda at the moment, and the "too" in yer statement implies there are other "has beens" that you are thinking of. Is it a certain race/species you are referring to?  :sleazy:  :evil:

Good to here,arrogant thugs....News claims olympic viewership is way down,30 year low....

the few athletes that decided to use the olympics as their political plateform to disrespect our country,flag and anthem ruined these 2021 games for a alot of folks including respectful and  greateful to live in our great country team mates.no games at my ranch,not even high lights.

Simone did qualify for every medal event despite not being at her best.  I hate it when sports media feels compelled to crown athletes THE Greatest Of All Time while they are still competing.  Its stupid and irrelevant, but storylines like that sell advertising.  I guess it is supposed to make us feel better about ourselves for watching - that we shouldn't miss out on something important.

Ledecky's loss to Aussie, Ariarne Titmus, was not an upset.  Titmus made it her mission to beat Ledecky in this event and she was faster than Ledecky in races all year leading up to the Olympics.  The fact that Ledecky made it so close was a testament to the drive and determination of both women.

This is what Olympic sport is all about - not what you get from Men's USA Basketball.  Nothing but excuses from those guys.

More excuses...

Damian Lillard suggests foreign NBA players play better in the Olympics than in the NBA

"And you know who we see each night sometimes in the NBA, they are completely different when they play for their countries," Lillard said. "They got more freedom, and the comfort level is obvious. So we put ourselves in a dogfight, and they made plays to win it."

They got more freedom???

What is that supposed to mean.   :scratch:

After lunch I turned them on and it was 3 on 3 half court women playing.  The US won by a point and they fought their azzes off.  Those are some tough girls.  Of course 2 of China's women looked like men to me.
