Ladies and gentleman i give you the 39th Ryder Cup. Anyone who caught the TV coverage must have been left in no doubt as to why Americans are so disliked. They are bad sportsmen and even worse loser's. They have no respect for any opposing team, and try their utmost to spoil the concentration of their opponents. They have foul and abusive language to anyone not wearing the stars and stripes. Golf is a game for gentlemen. The followers of the game in the US are certainly no gentlemen.

Why should they have any respect for you guys when you don't ahve any respect for us?

Respect is a two way street.

And this is just generalizing against all Americans. I'm really tired of Europeans saying that because one or two Americans are behaving badly that all 320 million of them are behaving badly and must be held accoutnable.

This is called collective judgement. But it's far easier to just use a blanket judgement like this than say this individual was being a jerk.

I can probably find many different videos of Europeans and other people behaving badly and do the same thing, and say that all Europeans are nothing but a pack of rabid jerks.

How would that make you feel?

If it's not okay for us to do something like that to you then why would it be that it's okay for you guys to make these kinds of idiotic generalizations about us?

You really should stop generalizing about people.

Not sure what happened in the story, I will go look it up.
But your right, that sure sounds like me, but only when playing horseshoes. I don't play golf.

Ok, I just read the story.
Yes, a SELECT few, young, disrespectful people.
I understand this is golf, you are supposed to be respectful and quiet.

But all your other comments could be describing all YOUR countrymen at one of your "Football" games, no?

I think I would like clarification before replying...

Did you mean to say "America" or "Americans"? Because they are two different subjects you know. I am an American and I have many friends from all parts of the world.

No meat, no basis, no justification, no nothing. Just more ignorance in spite of everything we fight for.

Yep, just another day in the ATS park. I'll rant and rave beside the foreigners (everyone outside the States) if they have a valid point, but I won't do it just because.


We all know the Americans are hated. Is it because we keep pulling your butts out of the fire, or because you keep slapping us after we do? Perhaps I'm wrong here, but I think the world might be a very different place if America had never been.

Was that your vision of the future?

Perhaps I'm wrong here, but wouldn't it be very hard to imagine a future without a place that was founded over 200 years ago?

"Pulling our butts out of the fire" When exactly was this?

He'll most likely say WW2, while at the same time completely glossing over the fact that Bush practically dragged Blair at gunpoint into Iraq.

No, I don't support our guys chanting obscenities at the other teams. I believe in good sportsmanship, and this isn't good sportsmanship.

I just don't like generalizations.

Events like The Ryder Cup are televised World Wide. It gives the world a view of Americans. How do you think they came across to the rest of the world?

They shouldn't base all Americans on the actions of a few.

Period.

Just ebcause some Americans do this doesn't mean all Americans do this crap.


And in fact, you Europeans do it to us too.

Are you going to denounce them?

As another poster mentioned, this is highly hypocritical.

Just look at the way your football teams and "firms" treat one another. Disrespect, violence, rioting and more. I bet if we tallied the spectator death toll from all american sports combined and compared them to European Football deaths, the europeans have killed many, many more.

And of course death isnt the point is it? Its rudeness. Perhaps we have to point out the racist chants at Dutch football games? Simply because there were blacks on the team. Yeah, you europeans have it down pat.

All that all of this pissing match of back and forth reveals to me is that the idiots have finally outpaced us who are polite and even if we dont agree with it in every situation, understand the necessity for social graces and interpersonal communication. There must be a breeding program that promotes the rudeness and idiocy.. in the US and Europe.

Yes, but I want the one starting posts and calling out other countries on their sports fans, was l? Soccer, which is almost unheard of in North America has the most violent, rude and nationalistic fans of all, easily surpassing anything the West has to offer, Vancouver riots included.
