Well I think we can all agree that the USWNT just passed Chris Brown on the list of biggest women-abusers.
this is in such bad taste.
oh my god
what the fuck was op thinking
No, I don’t find spouse abuse (or any type of abuse) funny, if that’s the concern here. I believe what Chris Brown did was one of the most vile and disgusting things a human being can do.
But I believe that the best thing about humor is that if you can laugh about something, you can take the negativity out of it.
Bad taste? Perhaps. And my sincerest apologies to the people I’ve offended, but it wasn’t my intention to offend.
i’m not going to waste my time trying to educate your ignorant ass but TRUST that if i hadn’t used the last of my daily allotment of patience i would be schooling your misogynistic behind so forcefully you’d need a nap before you could respond.

this concept, the idea that a loss can be somehow unfair because the losers played “better” than the winners, is one of the stupidest in soccer. a losing team can be unlucky, a losing team can suffer from poor refereeing, a losing team can play with skill and flair and still see all of their shots hit the bar or sweep wide. but do you know what you have to do to be, objectively, the “better team”? score more goals.
my condescension is fully warranted, i assure you.
france had the lion’s share of possession against the usa, their passing was more accurate, their midfield more engaged. but their defense let in three goals, and their attackers couldn’t compensate. lopsided possession doesn’t always indicated lopsided ability! the usa has progressed through this tournament without dominating possession, because in the end they score more goals.
i realize that the “beauty vs. results” debate is never going to end (because it’s fun!), but until we start deciding matches on panache everyone is going to have to accept that a visually pleasing style is not inherently more deserving of a win than a stout athletic style.
“I mean, if they shit the bed by not closing this deal, they’ll at best be the answer to a trivia question for the rest of their lives, if not a punch line.” Soccer fans in Japan, whose national team upset Sweden 3-1 to advance to the final, agreed, saying that if the Japanese women throw away the greatest underdog story of the past hundred years, they might as well not come home.
