…and in a site dedicated to “fighting ignorance” mod-deluxe, RickJay – who, by the way, had plenty of shit to say about the Canada/US footie match – decides that I am “thread-shitting” because I disagreed with AD’s assessment of Solo’s save as “probably the best he is seen in years” with no qualification as to what he has has seen in said time. After reading his post, I merely congratulated the US on their victory and mentioned that he likely wasn’t aware of the great stops in the men’s game – which, without an ounce of misogyny, anyone can see is far superior to the woman’s game. Well then, first Lamar Mundane confirms it wasn’t a “best ever save” but rather mundane, and right after that a certain Knorf butts in to write one of the most ignorant posts I’ve read here yet – and after a decade, that’s saying something.
I then proceed to gently mock their ignorance of football in general and link to two of the best keepers of the world in action.
– underline mine.
Really? Want to talk “sexism”? “Ignorance”? Or how about both at the same time? Mayhaps chalk it up to plain butthurt hyperbole?
Right. To bed I must, and next morning I wake to this sage “yellow card” by RickJay, likely the most sagacious and knowledgeable of all football mods here. :rolleyes:
Because, of course, I was “threadshitting” while asking someone what was so unusual about the save – and being told by others that it wasn’t – other than it was made by an American in a Gold medal game. And then having to hear a bunch of ignorant crap about how woman’s football is simply ‘so much better than men’s.’
At any rate, I honestly don’t give a shit about the warning itself. I’ll proudly keep it.
The ignorance, however, is all on you – as in the ones that participated in defending such major bullshit.
In closing, I enjoy any number of women’s sports even more than I do their men’s counterparts (volleyball for one; and not the cheap beach bikini-clad cr*p) – but please, please, till you find female equivalents to say, Casillas, Messi, Ronaldo, Kobe Bryant, Dwight Howard & Albert Pujols, stay away from comparing male & female sports achievements. It’s simply ignorant in more ways than one.
