Iran - how dare the United States briefly disrespect our flag?

Iran - makes trampling the U.S. flag a daily ritual for 40 years (to the point that it is a political act when students refuse to step on it).

Haven't the Iranian players themselves been openly protesting the actions of their own government at the World Cup this year?

some cnn bologna on some sports thing I call soccer that I don't watch and won't give a shiat about until season 3 of ted lasso comes out is the last thing I need this morning

I just can't.  I CAN'T!!  I HAVE NO JOKES!!  YOU PEOPLE WANT TOO MUCH FROM ME

You're not Musk.  I am not hard core.

Sports are an opportunity to drop the political kugels and celebrate standing on a field as equals and competing for nothing more than the next X minutes of playtime.

It gives us a window into a reality we spend a lot of time distracting ourselves from:

We're all the same.

I know I'd be too devastated to play the game if I had to endure a grilling by Iranian journalists. Would have no choice but to endeavor to persevere.

Regardless of the final score, I'd love to see a few Iranian players hoisted up by the US team after the game. Make it brief, nobody farking says anything, just a quick gesture of solidarity
 
2022-11-29 10:35:15 AM  
While the Iranian State Press is paid to rip America's ass at press conferences, I doubt that the Iranian soccer players give two shiats unless they or their families are literally being tortured.

Those players should take a long look at their own country's abysmal record on human rights before pointing the finger at... wait.. never mind.

This whatabout business is confusing.

even for this year's World Cup, which was already in danger of being remembered as a political rather than sporting spectacular.

Um, that was a foregone conclusion the moment FIFA decided "Hey! Let's have the World Cup in Qatar! What a great idea that will be!"

The game, which the US must win to get to the knockout phase of the tournament, will take place in the middle of extraordinary controversy that is notable even for this year's World Cup, which was already in danger of being remembered as a political rather than sporting spectacular.

Please.  This thing became a political mess the moment Qatar was named host country.

it's a game that hundreds of millions of people around the world enjoy. That's why they call it the World Cup. We call our baseball finals the World Series. Oh I forgot, Canada still has a team. That makes it worldwide to me.

It's a distraction from their players actions and statements by picking fights with the US team to take the headlines away.

Honestly though I think it was kinda farked up for that whatever soccer association to photoshop their flag. I get the point and all, and they burn our flags for fun, but sometimes maybe better to take the high road. And also not politicize the damn futbol match ffs.

Earlier at a presser after losing their first game they said they support the protestors too.
