Jeezze could you believe the refereeing in that game?

I hope that the bit about the flag is not true. If it was a poster of the other team, or one of their jerseys, fine. But, no way should anyone desecrate another country's flag over a sports competition. The idea just pisses me off!

Congrats to the winners. They clearly worked for it, and deserved it. And, if the part about the flag is true, then the US team didn't deserve to win.

Congratulations! Way to go, Canada! Your hockey women are a great team. And I agree; if the US did put a Canadian flag on the floor that's really disgusting.

Congratulations.
Damn, that means that Canada overtakes Switzerland on the medals table. You have a few more bronze medals than we do.

Through out your life you will wonder who THEY are. Then you find out who THEY really are. From then on you live you life in fear of THEM and you wish you never knew who THEY were.

According to the news cast I saw, the announcer confirmed that they indeed had the Canadian flag on the floor, "but they didn't disrespect it by stepping on it, it was there as a reminder of the Canadians being close behind". Um, isn't that disrespectful to have a flag even touch the ground? Oh, and I like the Canadian women's reaction they wanted to know if the US team would like them to sign it. heh, now that's class. Could you imagine the scandal if Canada had done that to the US flag, especially now, with the war on?

COngrats to the Canadian women's team, for showing the world how to be true champions!

Yeh, it's disrespectful to have a flag touch the ground. And, as an American, I actually am not at all sure the US team didn't step on it, even though I sure hope they didn't.
