[Olympics] Dream Team looks bad again


 Share

Recommended Posts

I would like to see big-time pro athletes removed from the Olympics altogether for certain sports. For some sports you don't have much of a choice.

Sure some will oppose this since IF the US plays well, they're virtually assured Gold. I'll vouch the same for hockey. Canada is in a similar position ... IF... the team plays well.

I would fell much more proud of my basektball or hockey team - win or lose - if I saw university and semi-pros playing instead of over-paid (my opinion) athletes. And the same goes for all other countries. For one, they're hardly to practice all year round (heck look at the All-Star Games now).

Absolutely. Let people who actually want to win, and will play their hearts out to win.

so the rest of the world caught up good for them. I'd rather see a young Dream Team like we have now which is closer to college age kids like we used to than the dream team of the 90s. Hopefully they check their ego's at the door and play better....

Personally, I hate that people are calling every US basketball team, the "Dream Team". To me there was only the one dream team.

Just because they are professional US players, doesn't make them any sort of dream team.

Most of these guys don't deserve to be there anyway. The US Olympic Basketball team isn't selected based on performance, like other sports, it's selected based on popularity. Which I believe is why they are losing. :whistle:

Oh no, I'm completely with you... to not cheer for your country is one thing, but to not cheer for them simply because of who plays for your country is stupid

why? do you love EVERY person in your country? If Brett Hull played for team Canada's hockey team i'd spit on their jersey and maybe wipe my ass with it too

I never said I had to like them. But they're representing my country... you completely misinterprited what I just said. I support the team because they represent my country. Do you mean to tell me that if Hull played for Canada you would hope they lose just because of Hull? I sure as hell wouldn't root against my team just because I hold a dislike for some of the players. That's just stupid, in my opinion.

Obviously it does if you dislike teamb> simply because you don't like a few of the players on it.:rolleyes:s:

Please stop resorting to obvious implied insults. I would have thought that a mod would be above that.

We understand your opinion. No need to keep bashing it on us. Some people just think *gasp* differently than you.

This thread has taken it's course.
