Don't be silly, Paoli: If they kneeled at any point while they were in the stadium, they were traitors. And, of course, we ALL know that the kneeling is what made them lose. Now, back to the beach handball thread ... :cool:
They have every right to kneel for whatever reason they want.
Of course, others have an equal right to dislike or disagree with this action. Wouldn't you agree?
Of course, in our current world we're interested in equality of results not meritocracy. So in reality the Swedes should not accept a win, that's not an acceptable, equitable result. They should demand that the Olympic committee declare the final! Score a tie.

They were kneeling with Sweden to protest. It's absolute nonsense.

"We have people from Team USA, from all over the country, from all backgrounds, and people literally from all over the world for every other team so I obviously encourage everyone to use that platform to the best of their ability to do the most good that they possibly can in the world, especially as all eyes are on Tokyo these next couple weeks"

So, a bunch of privaledged athletes, like the woke ignorant mobs in our finest universities, are taking a stand because they're so oppressed.

You represent your country, show some honor. Want to do it on your own time, I could give a damn. What a joke.

You're an absolute snowflake

They are all more patriotic than you children who have no idea what that word means.
Seems like you’re the one that has no idea what the word means. Here, I’ll help you.

pa·tri·ot·ic
/ˌpātrēˈädik/

adjective
adjective: patriotic
having or expressing devotion to and vigorous support for one's country.
"today's game will be played before a fiercely patriotic crowd"

Pretty sure Rapinoe and her like-minded friends aren’t having any of that.

They live in a country that allows then to make money playing a game. Even worse in a separate division created not because they are talented but because they are women.....and they kneel....let's hope nothing truly bad never happens to them.

There goes their claims for more money.

Yeah…a few short years ago, they were the toast of the town….Rockstars! Now, most Americans can’t stand them…and they did it to themselves.

Get woke…go broke…no joke!

Most Americans?? Where do you get this nonsense. Bigots don’t like them because a gay person is one of their stars / now that’s true. They kneel and they are ungrateful unAmerican ingrates ? What cultists don’t understand is what makes America America. It’s not showing mindless allegiance to a song , it’s being able speak your mind and protest things you see as unjust . But you would rather support some clown who hugs a flag will pissing on the Constitution. Gotta support Merica!!

Couple of points…

1-Yes, most Americans. I asked them.
2-Your homophobic bullshit is so 1990’s. Nobody gives a shit who Rapinoe sleeps with.
3-They are at THE OLYMPICS representing The United States of America. Protest at home if you must, but try to be proud of the country that gave you this tremendous opportunity while competing internationally.
4-The only “constitution-pissing” going on is with you leftist idiots that want to fundamentally restructure the US with your Marxist policies.
5-Try to be smarter…then you could perhaps, one day…with hard work…become a Conservative or Libertarian.

Good post.

It is sad how the left has politicized literally everything... the Olympics is just yet another institution added to the list of those tainted by the extremist, activist left. Go woke, go broke indeed.

I'm not even sure why they are so adamant in their defense of these gals, other than a feeling of being kindred spirits: Board Lefties don't score very often either...
