    No more kneeling for the anthem I hear. Wonder what motivated that decision?

    Only problem is that it was replaced by sexism, age-ism, and any other “ism” you can imagine.

    Glad to see this. It did cause a rift in the team as Rapinoe remains an ardent lefty-leaning activist while others like Carli Lloyd have remained rooted in traditional patriotism. They did all set aside their political differences when it came time to focus on playing. The USWNT visited Normandy when in France for the 2019 World Cup. It made a visible impact on all of them, including Rapinoe, but the most out-spoken was Lloyd who embraced a US veteran, now 90+ years old, who stormed the beaches of Normandy. Lloyd said "what we do is play a game, they are the real heroes."

    Don't want this thread to get bogged down in politics, but it is obvious now that the commies have one of their own in the WH they don't see the need to stir up problems elsewhere. Soros has cut off funding...for now...of BLM/Antifa so we will see less riots and destruction from them. The Left wants to project an image of calm and "goodness" now, so national anthem protests are out of bounds.

    Back to the important stuff...

    Greatness. In sports we, all of us, are fascinated, GRASPED! by greatness. You may not be familiar with the story of Phar Lap. He was an Australian-bred race horse, back in the 1930's, who exploded onto the international scene. The horse was "murdered" by the Mafia while in Mexico, poisoned, because they couldn't beat him on the track. The breeder of Phar Lap was interviewed by a newspaper sports' writer who said, "What do you make of all this fuss about Phar Lap's death? After all, he was JUST a horse." The man fumed, "He was NOT just a horse! He was the best!"

    Is Michael Jordan JUST another basketball player? What about Babe Ruth, Hank Aaron, and others...just more baseball players?

    Well, you may not be a soccer fan, and some here hate women's sports in general, ahem. But, the truth is the USWNT has achieved a status of being the absolute best ever, and is adding to their legacy as one of the most successful, dominating teams, in any sport, of all time! I can't think of any team, men's or women's, in any sport that has dominated like this. Since FIFA sanctioned women's soccer there have been 8 World Cups. The US has won 4 titles and has reached the Final Four all eight times.

    Can this women's soccer team beat men's teams? NOPE! But then they don't have to. Many of us can watch the Olympics and cheer for the USA's women's track & field stars and be just as thrilled for them as we are for the men. Like this: USA breaks 4x100M Women's Records In London 2012 | The Olympics On The Record - YouTube

    U
    SWNT = GREATNESS
