SuperHornet's Athletics Hall of Fame includes Jacksonville State kicker Ashley Martin, the first girl to score in a Division I football game. She kicked 3 PATs in a 2001 game for J-State.

What, saying she won't go to the White House? I'm talking about some gesture on the field like unveiling a sign or something.

I am calling for a game between the US womens' team and the US mens' teams so we can kill two birds with one stone.

1) The US womens' team can get the crap kicked out of it and learn some humility.
2) The US womens' team can stop claiming its members deserve to be paid as much as the mens' team is paid.
:ohno:

If only we held the same standards of behavior for all athletes...
unless of course you think most athletes are pricks
I think that if you had a college football player do something equivalent to that tea drinking thing after a score the team would be flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct and they should be.

Also, I do think there is a problem with rampant unsportsmanlike conduct in sports.

And there it is. The ridiculous feminazi Nike commercial that turns a nice achievement into a political statement.

Everything won my other than white males has to come with a chip now. It's rather sickening and takes away from what should be common enjoyment. I wish we could just be USA again.

Fuck NIke.

I can't believe it's even suggested that some wouldn't complain about a men's team running up the score the way the women did in Thailand. Actually, I guess I shouldn't be surprised since it's not unusual to make up gender double standards that don't exist.

I also think it's rich that people are complaining that more funding is needed for a women's soccer program that's won 4 of the 8 WWC tournaments that have been. That would be like UConn women's basketball complaining they need more money.
We get the government we deserve. :nod:

I watched the last two games and enjoyed them quite a bit. Then again, I'm still comfortable in my white male skin and don't feel a bit bad about it. :lol:

I’m sure it pained him to do that.

But not as much as a well-struck soccer ball in the nuts. That happened to me once in middle school. Second-worst pain I ever experienced.

Seriously, my first-worst pain was the first 10 minutes after my pain meds wore off after my knee surgery. Getting drilled in the gonads by a rampaging Wilson was #2.

I didn’t care before the flag controversy.

I don’t care now.

couldn’t name a single player on the womens team.

Or the men’s team, for that matter. :lol:

Perhaps college... sure
But pro football and baseball and basketball are over the top celebrations
Football players grabbing their balls and having 3 minute long dance parties in the end zone

and what do we do... ESPN has a weekly televised scorecard grading the best celebrations
we congratulate MEN on their celebrations

:lol:

Yeah John, she sipped tea...

The thing here is the pointed reference to the opponent.
This would be like an FSU opponent doing the chop to the FSU crowd after scoring or a Texas opponent giving the "horns down" hand signal to the Texas crowd after scoring.
It's taunting.
It just comes down to whether it is against the rules or not. (clearly the horns down is a penalty when done on the field. See WVU game).
It was not a penalty in the World Cup.
So it comes down to whether you like taunting or not, and how far is too far. Pulling a white flag out against France or a swastika against Germany would be taunting too. Would that be acceptable?

It's taunting but there is plenty of taunting by male athletes that is celebrated.

Baker Mayfield planting the flag against Ohio State was both vilified and celebrated.

No NBA player has ever flexed their muscles and made a constipation face over an opponent after a posterizing dunk?

I think it's poor sportsmanship but it's pretty common in men's sports and there is a double standard.

Taunting is taunting. Rules are rules. When taunting and rules overlap, penalties are levied. When they don't overlap, there are no penalties. I'm not sure where the double standard exists here.
