    They wowed on the field but the celebrations have been grating. Virtually everyone not a USWNT supporter seems to be of the opinion they are arrogant and over the top in celebration. A few times I honestly felt they were insulting to their opponents. Rapinoe is blatantly self promoting, I have no issue with her making money as it's a short career but her shtick is getting boring. Golden Ball and Golden Boot for scoring penalties? I'd buy the Golden Ball for best player but Golden Boot should go to player who scores most in run of play not a designated penalty taker

    I saw a tweet last night of the locker room celebration and the comments were brutal. I didnt follow the rabbit down the hole on that but i wouldnt be shocked if most were Pro Trumpers. But i dont know. Its possible that Anti Trumpers also were not thrilled with the antics.

    Ill try and find that tweet.

    • I didn't see that. Read about 6-7 U.K. papers and they are getting blistered. Apparently pretty similar throughout Europe. The Ugly American stereotype

      • I had to dig into my internet history to find this. lol Its from a MAGA guy. So its going to have a bunch of people in their dissing the team because of their stance on the WH i guess. But its hard to find the unedited version.

        • Oof. That video shouldn't have made it into the public. I'm not a Trump guy but that isn't a good look. Add it to the list of reasons they are being criticized I guess.

            I see CHAMPIONS celebrating.

            How is this any different than any other team celebrating "together" their amazing 2nd consecutive World Cup Title?

              I agree. Don't like it? Beat them.

              • I dont think i have a problem with the celebration. I think posting it publicly was probably pretty stupid. Because youth soccer players see it. The girls need to keep this stuff a little more private. Just my opinion.

                  Youth football, baseball, basketball doesn't see Champaign popping, foul language, religious excrement spouted, dancing, exhilaration of winning, etc?

                  I guess I just didn't see anything that was really objectionable in that clip. Did I miss something?

                    Maybe i just cant recall seeing that? Not from a National Team. It probably exists. We dont have to agree. As a USA thing i dont like seeing it.

                    • It's our national team. Representing all of us, not a youth team or pro team. I don't think singing about your pussy is the image most Americans want portrayed by people wrapped in the a Flag. They filmed it and let it get on social media. Now they own it
