Make no mistake about it, the USA men's basketball team earned their gold metals today.
Everyone earns their medal in the Olympics...except the US womans soccer team, which was pretty much given their medal. I dont think anyone contested that. I think what was said was that the US team was favoured to win and they did. Nothing more!!

So what if they were the favorites? Still have to get the job done. Bolt was the favorite in his events but his ability to produce and in spectacular fashion is still incredible. But since Bolt was favored, you would think ho-hum on his accomplishments?

Exactly.

Sometimes the athletes (or teams) who are favored to win don't get enough credit when they do win because they were somehow "supposed to win".

Couldn't say it better myself.

The U.S were favorites to win in 2004.....remember what happened then?

Brazil were favorites to win Gold in Soccer.....what happened?

And so on....

No one is handed anything, you gotta work for it and earn it.

Really? The Ref has been suspended by FIBA and there is an investigation now. I guess they only suspend a ref if they are fair and done nothing wrong right?

Um, Soccer will always have controversy, that's how the sport is.

They refuse to have instant replay and this is what you get.

You're right the calls were bad, but there's nothing that will change.

Canada isn't going to be given a victory over the U.S and the U.S isn't going to be told to relinquish their gold medals.

Oh for sure not. But now the question becomes did they "earn" the gold or buy it? lol

The mens basketball team earned their medals, just in case you were wondering

Orangejello? You think taking pot shots at my name makes you cool? Lets hope basketball comes and you go. I guess without LIN on the knicks, there will be nothing for you to moan and groan about.. Knucker

You were taking a pot shot. Orange yellow? Where do even read that?

I congratulated the US team on their gold medal win. THey were favored to win it at 6/5 odds. They won it. I dont know how they are a cinderella team at 6/5 favouring tho? Just look at the thread and see how much whining there was about the officiating and you tell me. But then again, im sure the homer in you turns a blind eye to it so as long as your team won.

The facts: US team was favoured. Fact: US team won. Offciating only matter if they doesnt favour the US team right?

Now you stoop even lower and make a mockery of the Canadian national anthem. Go figure.

Yeah, that's our reputation...not like Americans and their knowledge/awareness of the rest of the world.

Seriously, I could care less about the women's soccer - we lost, the better team won - but your comment is ridiculous.
