    [quote][b]U.S. soccer team hears Osama chants in Mexico


    Associated Press
    Feb. 6, 2004 12:30 PM


    ZAPOPAN, Mexico - The Mexican crowd hooted "The Star-Spangled Banner." It booed U.S. goals. It chanted "Osama! Osama! Osama!" as U.S. players left the field with a 2-0 victory.

    And that was in a game against Canada on Thursday before just 1,500 people.

    A game Tuesday in neighboring Guadalajara will determine whether the U.S. under-23 soccer team heads to the Athens Games....[/b][/quote]

    riggo your post says Mexico as an ally but i would tend to disagree these days, despite the prez's recent trip south of the border. Its one thing to talk aboout making millions of mexicans US citizens its another to do it. Bush also made very big campaign promises during his campaign... remember when he was all "Oooh-la Ahmeegos" ;)

    If Osama's camel humpers set off a dirty bomb in the middle of Mexico City, I think we'd hear the little Mexican bastards chanting "George, George, George" in a hurry.

    No one would notice. Mexico City is already dirty.

    That is disgusting. I love the game of football (soccer) but it is tainted with arsehole behaviour like this.

    [b]Bit[/b], as usual, you are correct. My line was more of a slight jab at our media and political leaders.

    This ugly display, doesn't totally suprise me, as it's pretty similar to what happens when other U.S national team's have gone south to play. At times, a lot of anti-American sentiment has seeped out at American athlete. This is no abberation at all, but is almost never reported.

    What does bother me a bit, is how the U.S media always obscure's these stories. They would never, ever obscure a story like this if it were France seranading U.S Athletes with [b]"OBL chants"[/b].


    [b]DM13[/b], the only way a dirty bomb ever goes off in Mexico City, is if it detonates prematurely on the way to Los Angeles, Anahiem, Houston, Phoenix or San Antonio....

    The borders are wide open and largely unprotected, so why would any terrorist not go a few extra miles to set off a dirty bomb?

    The U.S, in their sick minds, is their real enemy and Mexico voted against the U.S war in Iraq, so they are essentialy a non foe to Al Queda and Iraq.

    ALL THE MORE REASON WHY WE SHOULD POST SNIPERS ALONG OUR SOUTHERN BORDER.

    Mexico, another country that benefits from us then spits in the face of the U.S

    yea, that great "sucking sound" that Ross Perot talked about-- of U.S. companies going south cause the labor is cheaper, the great NAFTA agreement that the Mexico government capitalized on....it's no surprise then if it's true that the U.S. media is not covering the soccer chants

  13. #13
    [b]RT[/b], Perot was right. Any independent observer will tell you that. NAFTA is part, I believe, of a two pronged plan to depress the wages of American workers, put in place in the 1990's by the U.S business and political elite's (both parties): NAFTA was intended to destroy our manufacturing base; while the U.S gov't winked at the millions of workers who came in to take jobs that could not be sent away. This is 100% intentional.

    Back to the soccer: [b]RT[/b], this was reported in [i]The Los Angeles Times[/i], also, so it did happen....I bet you wont see ESPN's [i]Outside The Lines[/i] look at this story, because it's too politically incorrect. However, if one fan in Philly throws an apple on the field, Jeremy Schaap will be there the next day to taint every Philly fan :o

    What's really bothersome is the caliber of the Soccer players. I don't know "jack" or "squat" about soccer, but I do know the names Landon Donovan and Bobby Convey. Donovan is U.S soccer's version of LeBron James and Convey is so good, he played Major League Soccer at the age of 16 for the Washington, D.C franchise.

    Imagine if LeBron James, Kirk Heinrich, Amare Stoudemire and the rest of the young NBA stars went to Canada or France and had to hear these taunts of "Osama! Osama! Osama!"?

    Just inexucusable. The U.S media is just as pathetic as the fans that taunted the team.

    I was in Toronto recently and saw alot of anti-GWB material in stores.


    Really pissed me off.



    Could care less if that smart bomb goes off in Quebec&#33;&#33; <_<

  15. #15
    JEJ, can&#39;t forget Quebec is aligned with sissy France :o :rolleyes:

    English speaking Canada, by in large, is very supportive of the U.S, but the dynamics are different in that country, as Canada tends to be a socialist country, which is staunchly anti-war--except for Don Cherry ;)

    Of course, the reason they can be so anti-war, is because the U.S has their backs, I suppose.

    By the way, [b]big thumbs down to ESPN[/b]: Just checked their soccer page and they run the same AP story that I linked, except they [b]deleted[/b] the part of U.S players being taunted with "Osama&#33; Osama&#33; Osama&#33;" slurs :rolleyes:

    Agree, Perot was right. NAFTA is a strange animal, suppose to benefit the U.S. also and some reports reflect that but the bottom line is that it benefited U.S. companies already set up in Mexico and further encouraged companies to take their business there. The Mexico govenment deliberately keeps the wages there at a minimum so it will remain attractive, while illegals cross our borders and come here. Anyone can say what they want about Perot, but the Reform Party seems to be the only party that is being loud about our jobs going overseas (true or no?) Riggins, it is really scary if NAFTA is part of a U.S. plot and intentional to do what you said. We really don&#39;t know what is really going on in our own government.

    Agree, the soccer chants are deplorable. If they want to chant anti-U.S. remarks...whatever, that&#39;s their mentality....but to chant Osama after all the innocent people we lost in NY is really disgusting-- to show this nutcase support.

    Why the media not covering? maybe they will get flack from our officials who fear spoiling our "relationship" with Mexico?

    Some news magazine did a poll whcih said that only 15 percent of Canadians would vote for Bush....




    That&#39;s great, but unfortunately for them, they aren&#39;t Americans and so I could give a rat&#39;s a&#036;&#036; who&#39;d they want as U.S. president.

    I am not from Mexico and I dont think its funny at all. The only reason they are laughing is that it did not happen to them....that is the problem if 9/11 happened in some other country those people would be up in arms like we are. But because this country is the only superpower we take pot shots from everyone. The people from these countries think we are so arrogant but they are the first ones to take our money when they need us. If it wasnt for the US, they would be speaking French in Mexico...Napoleon&#39;s nephew (or something like that) actually was emperor for a short while.

    I say save the money that we spend in foreign countries and invest in AMERICA and lets see these countries cry a lil. However, there are many countries that stand by us....Spain, Poland, England...they should be spared.
