If it was just this incident, then yes that would be unfair to not like the entire team. But there has been more than this I don't care for with different players. It is my personal opinion. You may disagree and I have no issue with that. We can have a difference of opinion, that is what makes our country so great!!I agree that player (Allie Long maybe) should not have dropped the flag. BUT, you're disparaging the entire team based on the act of one player. "Well, she represents the team." Yes, she does. But I feel if you're going to criticize an entire team for the bad action of one player, you should also at least point out the good action of another player. Once Long dropped the flag, another player (I can't tell who) rushes in to grab it off the ground.
And yes, people (athlete and non) "disrespect" the flag ALL. THE. TIME.
And I don't like when anyone is disrespectful to the flag.
