  • I couldn't care less about any kind of sports.
    But I'll root AGAINST any pathetic entitled athlete that does some dumb sh*t like kneeling or disrespecting in any way his/her national anthem and flag, no matter which country they are there representing. In fact, doing that should give them an immediate disqualification and a ticket back home.
  • I'll catch some events, more when the athletics start. I hope ALL athletes are respecful and take the knee to show they are proud of their countries and against rascist fools. Black Lives Matter.
  • Yep. Watched team handball and table tennis this morning. I like the different sports.
  • Absolutely I'll be watching the Olympic coverage. I have not but respect for an athlete who chooses to take a stand against racism.
  • Oy vey... They need to stfu and do their little sport
  • Nothing against the athletes (well only some of them). But absolutely not. Couldn't care less. The Olympics have turned into the biggest global ponzy scheme around. Whatever the Games stood for has long since ended. Instead the Olympic Games have become a money pit for the hosting country/region/city. It is a free for all of corruption, graft, greed and outright theft of taxpayer's money by all kinds of societal parasites like developers, real estate agents, private contractors, politicians, corporations and worst of all the IOC, the biggest crooks around! Events such as these are always sold with promises of large infrastructure spending, public transit projects, social housing etc. These promises remain just that... promises...far from ever seeing the light of day. Just think, for example the city of Montreal finished paying off its 1976 Olympic Games debts around 2006. It took them thirty years. Or just ask the people of Rio De Janeiro if they still think that the 2016 Olympics were worth it...all that prestige, "being out on the map", tourist dollars etc., is just an illusion. The same goes for other high profile international events such as the FIFA World Cup, the PanAm games, the UEFA Euro Cup etc. Actually quite a lot of the IOC, FIFA and UEFA members should be in jail right about now...
