Women's Olympic Champions: No Apology Necessary

Let's hope the men's team can follow the Women's Gold Medal Win!
I am confident the majority of Canadians who were watching, cheering on our ladies last night, will not require an  APOLOGY. I DO NOT accept the double standard, how male athletes are excused for much worse behaviour on a regular basis. We can blame this on our tabloid style media for acting like bottom feeders AGAIN.

A word for the IOC, and reporters casting this as a negative incident: Please, just let Team Canada have their fun. What they did was refreshingly authentic. Don’t punish them for it.)-Luke Win SI.

UPDATE - Petti Fong

Initial reports that the International Olympic Committee was investigating the incident was downplayed by both the organization and the Canadian Olympic Committee.
Mark Adams with the IOC said there is no investigation but the committee has written to the Canadian Olympic Committee asking for an explanation of what happened. Hockey Canada has apologized for the actions of the women’s team.
“In the excitement of the moment, the celebration left the confines of our dressing room and shouldn’t,” they said in a statement. “The team regrets that its gold-medal celebrations may have caused the IOC or COC any embarrassment.”
COC president Michael Chambers said the women have nothing to apologize for.
“The players were very swift to express their regrets,” said Chambers Friday. “They know it was an error of judgment on their part.”
Chambers said, with a straight face, that it’s not uncommon for people to have a cold drink, including alcohol, after a hockey game.

The IOC just demonstrated what a bunch of horses asses they are.

Leave the girls alone, they deserve the gold, and Canada deserves to tell the IOC that they can kiss our arse.

I can't believe this qualifies as a news story.

Party on girls.
Canada is proud of you. You owe us nothing not even an apology.
You did us and yourselves proud. Don't let the idiots in the press take that away from you.s

Three cheers for our Canadian Gold Medal winners. Yes they deserve the Gold, they won it fair and square.

These young Ladies stand proud at the top of the world.

The media and the I.O.C. have been awarded the "Richard Cranium" award for best anal reaction to honest celebration.

As far as I'm concerned, the American media figures getting pissy over this can consume my dick.

Guess what? Our girls beat your girls. Again. They're gonna do it again in four years, too.

I think it was an attempt by an AP reporter and some pathetic media producers to boost some ratings.

Any bets the Women's team get a new sponsor deal from Molson's?


agreed even out media tried a trial ballon in stirring this up.


after bubbleboy, wafer stories our media has no limits they won't sink in trying to boost ratings.


Agreed they ladies thought the place was empty and the party spilled outside the dressing room.

The AP reporter and one IOC made a reflex statement that was D.O.A. before it had any real legs.
