Hope Solo tarnishes a prestigious American soccer team at the Olympics.
Name a cliche: sore loser, poor sport, classless etc.
Why the American team hasn't cut this boor, (despite her talent) long ago is unfathomable....

I am just glad team USA was eliminated. A lot of them are poor sports, thinks they are the best in the world and nobody deserves to win but them. I do like Alex Morgan, she always gives credit to the other teams.

Go Canada!! Gold is ours if we beat Germany again. I'm sure we can beat Sweden or Brazil.

I don't think this place is a big football crowd. I don't know why Solo is allowed to be on the team. her teammates don't really like her. She's abusive. She had a bad Olympics. Poor performance against the Colombians. She was probably frustrated about that too and it all came out. Feel sorry for her family.

Frankly (from Chicago, IL, USA), her comments are an embarrassment. And I think that many fellow countrymen feel the same.

Nope, sorry Aaron. Even though I agree with a lot of your sentiments, I can't go with ya on this one.

As for Ms. Solo, yeap. She has a long history of being an extremely talented dimpweed.

But to loop Lilly King into the same category as Hope Solo is a tad too narrow-sighted...Seriously...Deep breath time, lest one becomes a basher for the sake of finding something to bash...

Wishing good luck to Canada on the soccer pitch! That would be refreshing!

Lilly King has a big mouth. A big trash talking mouth. Refused to shake Yulias hand and [naughty word removed] talked her. That is unolympian. Maybe it is American though.
What did Yulia do? Took a prescription drug that most Eastern European athletes take and wasn't illegal until this year when the Americans made it illegal?
It smacks me in the face as obstruction by the Americans.
Anything to help their athletes win right? We all know if the Russians had their full team it would be a different story.

But ya making your competition cry because you're saying mean things about her .. That sounds worse than calling the team that beat you cowards.

Aaron?

Please clarify, which country's swimming team?

There are many nations involved in the Olympics.

But regarding your comment:

Is it the whole team??? Or just an idiot or two???

And hey, in the interest of fairness in reporting, especially regarding Hope Solo..

How about posting a link to Kerri Walsh-Jennings regarding her loss?

Or would acknowledging a U.S. Champion's graceful comments negate too much?

Just wondering...

Is it really more satisfying to rip than to praise?

Just wondering.....

I don't know a Kerri Walsh Jennings. I looked her up and she is a Volleyballer.
Why would I need to post a link regarding an Olympian acting with honour? That is how most Olympians have acted. The people that don't act with honour are the ones that make the most news because it is abnormal.

Most of the press now is focusing on Bolt and DeGrasse. That is good press.
Bad press though = team USA men's swiiming team 3 or 4 of them lying about getting robbed at gun point. What they did was get drunk and drive, trash a gasstation, got busted by the security and fought with them and were forced to pay damages. And then they lied about it. But you can't lie when there is video evidence involved. So 2 of them were detained in Brazil. One is in an undisclosed location and Loche is back in the USA because he's too much of a pussy to face up to his crimes.

Are you suggesting I should give these men a pass here simply because they are Americans?

Bob, when the Canadian men's hockey team lost their bronze medal game in the 98 Winter Olympics some of them trashed their hotel rooms and Canada as a nation gave them hell for it. U.S.A trashed theirs too. Trust me, I'm not looking for things to be mad at. They just happen. You should be angry like I was in 98. These men represent your country. Instead of arguing with me for who knows what reason you should be condemning their behaviour.

I don't care about volleyball. I don't watch it.. Why do I need to know about her? Because she's American? Do you know the names of the table tennis players? If you don't you lose all Olympic credibility.

Ok, let's do a rewind:

Which "men's swimming team"?

I'm guessing you meant the USA's, but I shouldn't have to guess. You should be more specific.

Did the whole swim team do something stupid, or...

Did Brian Loche, a known idiot do something stupid?

Again, you should be more specific....

And I ask this as someone who has very little "national" pride. I am a citizen of the planet. My place of birth was not up to me.

But as a writer/reporter, I prefer clarity as opposed to agendas...

......

And for what it's worth.....

Kerri Walsh-Jennings is a three time Olympic gold winner with her now retired partner. She came back to try for a fourth with a new partner. They fell short...And she was graceful in defeat.

And no, I can't name any ping-pong team members, but I can bet you a dollar to a dozen Tim's donuts, that if a ping-pong team was coming back in an effort to earn their 4th consecutive gold medal, that everyone on the planet would know their names...
