2011 Gold Cup

Sad day to be an American. The entire stadium packed with Mexicans, probably many of them here illegally and pushing drugs. The US goes up 2-0 and then seemingly quits. The Mexican players show more pride on the field and there fans show more pride in the stands as they easily score 4 goals to take the game.

But, hey, keep celebrating multiculturalism, liberals! It's working really well, isn't it? We're the laughing stock of the world. Anyone who saw that game would see the US as a pathetic nation of zombies who have no pride.

Moderators like you should learn communication skills so you can do more than hurl insults.

GREAT stereotyping! I'm certain that the reason we are a laughing stock is based solely on our play on the pitch and not by statements such as that...

The U.S. is a "pathetic nation of zombies" because we have the NFL lockout, the NBA Draft, the NHL Draft, and MLB all going on in the summer. Soccer is only a recreational sport here, and because of that we will never be a soccer power. Don't get me wrong, I'd LOVE to see us win a World Cup or two, but when you're going up against a nation like Colombia, where a player was murdered because he scored an own goal on an unlucky play that cost his team a chance at getting past the GROUP STAGE, I think it's safe to say the United States will always be overmatched.

How is it stereotyping? There ARE a lot of Mexicans in the US who are here illegally and pushing drugs. There were some tens of thousands of Mexicans at the game. I can surely assume that they weren't just the legal ones who are decent people.

Also it has nothing to do with the fact they loss. The problem is the team had little support. NBA, NFL and NHL seasons are over and I don't know enough about the MLB to know if they're playing or not. How does the stadium end up filled with Mexicans?

It's pathetic. Why are the Mexicans in this country if they don't support the US? How do you not see any problems with this?

Wow, I disagree with just about everything you said in this post. However, since it is almost 1:30 am, I will make the dumb decision to respond...

1. You followed up a question about the definition of stereotyping with a generalization.

2. FYI, I'm sure there are plenty of illegal immigrants who are decent people just doing whatever they can to make a living for their families back home, but that's a debate for the Tinderbox and if you're any indication, I should stay as far away from there as possible...

3. The stadium ends up filled with fans of Mexico because they CARE ABOUT THE GAME LIKE THEIR LIFE DEPENDS ON IT and we like to send our five year olds to the local rec league fields on Saturdays to have them kick a ball around for exercise. I believe the term is "Soccer Mom."

4. So since the Mexicans moved to the U.S. for a better opportunity, they should forget about their heritage? If you were to move to England, would you give up rooting for the U.S.?

Wow, what a sore loser. It's a game and you have bring issues that are not relevant to the game... loser talk. The USA gave a great game. They punched Mexico in the mouth. Mexico just responded instead of backing down. It speaks volumes of American futbol, they are showing plenty of progress. I don't know what game you were watching, but the USA never back down. They were more aggressive in the second half.

The only reason the USA would be the laughing stock of the world, would be because of close minded jerk offs that attack others just because of their nationality. You act like Americans don't push drugs.. also, are you seriously this stupid? Pasadena is like 4 hours from the border... read a history book while you're at it.. California belonged to Mexico once. I'm willing to bet that a lot of the Mexicans there are 3rd to 4th generation Mexican-American... Damn someone get this fellow an umbrella, because its raining cold hard facts in here.

Sylvian doesn't even hide his racism anymore. I really hope you don't have any children to spread any of your bigoted bullshit to.

Sylvian, keep your pro-rape, anti-minority stance in the Tinderbox or I'll make you disappear like Tim Howard.

We were screwed as soon as Borstein got in there, but it would have been hard for us to win anyway. Chicharito and Dos Santos are just too much for our backs in regards to skill and pace. I feel bad for Tim Howard having to deal with our defense.
