Americans: "fark soccer..."

Canadians: "Our women's team should have won against yours"

Yeah, after the crap they pulled against the US Women, and the crap they pulled in the media after the game, how anyone can root for Canada in futbol la femme is beyond me. Well, I guess they were playing farking France, but still...

Yes, I guess telling the truth about a completely bs call that led to the tying goal is wrong these days...

//Cheering for Canada
// And Japan

Which completely BS call? The blatant Handling call, or the obvious Delay call against their goalie (for which she'd already been warned several times)? Because we can balance them out with the refs-didn't-see-it violence the Canadians were doing (head-stomping, punching and the like) to try and "win." Hey, if you're outskilled and outclassed, try to rough them up, right? How'd that work for you.


Not too badly. They came close against a heavily favoured team. Get to play the martyr after being screwed by the refs. Squeezed out a medal after some previous disappointing tournaments. The team leader is now a national hero and will carry the flag at the closing. They raised the profile for the women's game in Canada. Worked out nicely, thank you.

Lunchlady: BudTheSpud: Mia Hamm couldn't hold a finger to Christine Sinclair, sorry Americheats. You may have the gold, but we have the GOAT

Americheats?

Your inferiority complex is showing.


A country that is beloved around the world and has better a human/civil rights record doesn't feel inferior. We feel smug.

fastfxr: Oh get over it, Canada. Referees don't decide games. Perhaps if you had more than just one player on your team (Sinclair), you could have won. The US was down and came back, each time, and they scored with 30 seconds in extra time...by fighting and not giving up, though they were all VERY tired.

And I agree with the unprofessional physical by Canada, especially Tancredi. She should have been carded early on.



The entire American team should have been yellow carded for all the diving they did that match. Pathetic sorry excuse for womens soccer that game was. Sinclair stood on her head and scored a hat trick trying to keep Canada ahead and the Americans hated it so much they wouldn't stop screaming in the refs ear the entire match.

Oh please. Let's not get to over the top shall we? First of all if that ref consistently calls holding the ball to long by the goaltender then I say good for her. It's a good call by someone with the integrity to follow and enforce the rules. However, if this was the first time she calls it then it is a B.S. call. I'm not that familiar with her track record.
Second, I only briefly saw the hand ball call. I can't find any video of it, but it appeared to me to be completely unintentional as it deflected from her arm. That is a bad call.
As for the head stomping accusation. It's just completely absurd. Tancredi does not appear to even take her eye from the ball - she trips up on the shoulder and her foot comes down on the head. Jesus, she barely even lifts her leg. I think she had better things to worry about than kicking someone in the head and understandably so.

no amount of pro-US refereeing could keep Canada from winning this game.

Canada may have lost to the U.S. but they scored 3 good goals against that coont Hope Solo so they won gold in my mind.

You're not serious, are you? I think her 158 international goals is pretty hard to beat.



I think it's a pretty common sentiment among the international football community that Sinclair is the greatest active player, and is considered by some the GOAT, although it's hard to name any active player as such.

158 (in 275) is pretty hard to beat, but 143 (in 190) isn't that far off, especially considering Christine is only 29. I'm not sure how many competitive games are played in the run-up/qualifying for WWC and Rio, but 15 goals doesn't seem out of reach. Hell, Abby Wambach (a pure finisher, and tied w/ Sinclair at 143 (in 187)) is likely to overtake Mia in goals, although probably not in GOAT rankings.

/Plus, she won a National Championship for her dying coach, who succumbed to cancer a few months afterwards. Beat that, Mia and your all-star Tar Heels! :P

farbekrieg: Mr_H: After watching the Canada v USA game, I was rooting for Canada in this match. But they really didn't play like they deserved it. Glad they won, but the French really deserved the win. Oh well, that's soccer for ya.

not only the above but the kiss your sister round, 3 weeks from now no one outside of the people involved will remember who got bronze.


...or the Gold.
