US Soccer Team Disses Troops on Guatamalan Tarmac

The US Soccer Team dissed US troops on the tarmac in Guatamala. The team blew past the troops who came out to greet them and went straight to their bus when they landed in Central America.

TMZ reported, via Orbusmax:

The U.S. soccer team insists … they didn’t mean to snub American troops at a Guatemalan airport Monday — blowing past the soldiers’ big welcoming party for the team — so the players are apologizing.

Team America flew in for a World Cup qualifying match against Guatemala — and troops stationed in the Central American country came to greet them on the tarmac and cheer them on to victory.

But when the team got off the plane … they made a beeline for the bus, not saying a word to the soldiers … not even a “thank you.” The troops were understandably insulted.

The soldiers’ friends and family took to Facebook to express their disgust — writing messages like, “What a disgrace that a team that wears our American colors can’t take 5 minutes to acknowledge the soldiers that fight for what those colors represent.”

    What a bunch of nincompoops! They should be stripped of their “colors”. I hope somebody wipes the floor with them. May they lose every game they play.

  • Stonedome

    That’s because soccer is not an American sport…did they think no one would notice? They’re stars, don’t you know…

    The US military does not belong to the US.. It is the globalist NWO military.. Period.. Why should they thank the tools of the bankster criminals who are bankrupting this country..

    Big Ass whoopsie-daisy you fecal headed jocks! A plan B coming’ along anytime now?

    Who cares? They’re only soccer players. Their thanks and acknowledgement is not worth a fart in the wind.

  • Ed

    Couldn’t have happened that way unless they were instructed to do so before deplaning. Lets have a look see at the coaches.

    Soccer is not a sport. Soccer is an activity. No time for the troops? Your dead to me.

    Soccer is such a European and Third World pursuit, reveling in its banning of the use of the opposable thumb to reduce it to a sport of animals. I can’t say that I’m surprised that the US soccer team (national teams are, themselves, not very American, with the singular exception of putting one together for the Olympics every four years) is acting like Eurotrash and Third Worlders. They are who they are. I always thought it would have been funny if the US won the world cup only in that Americans wouldn’t care one bit. We aren’t about “national teams”, we’re about professional teams; seeing the best team play.

    It’s a shame that you can see this Eurotrash influence in tennis, too. It’s an individual sport that has some ridiculous European obsession with putting flags next to everyone’s name, as if they are representing some country in this individual competition. Europe is hopelessly tribal and their tribalism infects everything they touch. To make it even worse, they pretty much suck at everything.

    The US soccer team should suffer the same fate that Harvard Lawn School should suffer for having kicked military recruiters off campus – not one federal dime should go to them. Let them fund their own America-hate.

    Professional athletes have serious problems. Not role models anymore.

    Obama Disrespects Air Force Academy Graduates

    Obama could be an example, for someone who needs the youth vote and all.

    But, sadly he hasn’t been that forthcoming.

    Respect is also a visual thing, had one of these team members shook a hand of a troop, I do believe others would follow. One person would have made all the difference in the world.

    So what can we do to teach our kids to respect their own country and the service men and women who helped and are helping make it what it is today? Modeling and explaining. We can’t just tell them to salute the flag or respect the military. They won’t listen. This is a generation that is very independent and wants everything to be justified to them. ”Why do I have to do this?” ”Why is this so important?” ”What I can I just get by with?” We need to model to them how to show respect, and then we need to explain to them why it’s so important. They need to see the value in it.

    Explaining the importance of patriotism and respect was one thing that our school’s not all have a problem with. Veterans are coming home and some will become teachers and they of all will teach their student respect for the Nation and the Military.
    I guarantee you, every student will come out of class with not only a love of history, but also a reverent respect for our military and country. And what its meant to be a true patriotic American – the “old-school” way.

    soccer is what is wrong with Europe. It is a lot of fancy foot-work, never get your hands dirty and use your head as a batteringram.

  • Patty

    Again, it is our schools, parents and examples of patriotism. It is a visual thing when it comes to the youth of today.

    Many were young during the Attacks on our nation. So, reminding the student of that day is not a bad thing. Nor is it a bad thing to learn how important it is to remember those we lost and those who fought for our freedom. Freedom they have to play in those games and live in a nation that is more respectful and more patriotic because of those who have fought so hard for all of us.

    We’re making a bigger deal of this than necessary or fair.

    It appears to be a result of misunderstanding about why the troops were there. The team might have thought the line up welcome was for another passenger on the plane and not wanting to act like prima dona’s, they quietly got on their bus.

    The story alludes to the uncertainty with this quote: “The players and staff were simply unsure of the correct protocol in terms of engaging the military members on arrival to Guatemala … [the players] weren’t sure if they were welcoming them or providing security.”

    Soccer still sucks and the Olympics suck even more, but I don’t think the soccer team deserves any criticism, other than for playing a sucky sport for a bunch of one-world elites intent on world dominance and the destruction of the American Spirit.

    They have watched Obama do this every day on TV for the last 3 1/2 years without anyone saying anything…….They think it is normal to look right past the uniform as if the people wearing it do not exist.

    I would bet that the US Soccer WOMEN’s team would be glad handing every one of those
