    Let's break down this game.

    Shots on goal - 31
    less Shots saved - 4
    less Shots scored - 2

    Shots that missed the goal face 25 or 81%.

    This is fundamentals. Sure, it was a long tournament, but the girls were not mentally prepared for this game. I suspect the prevailing thought was we could beat Japan with one leg tied behind our backs. While that may be true, you don't let the team go out thinking that. The coach's job is to ensure that we are parepared to win the game, we, obviously, were not regardless of the fact that we had the tools to so do.

    This was a freakish loss, and you should not be so hard on the players and the coaches.

    Lance - I am not urinating on our girls. They are a very talented bunch. The fact is, however, they played poorly today and as a result, lost the tournament. I would really prefer to be able to say Japan out played us and deserved to win, but that would not be true. We beat ourselves today.

    That sucked. Heartbreaking for our girls.

    The storyline was just too ripe for Japan not to win after this past year. I'm proud of the US ladies but happy for Japan and hopefully the beginning of some type of healing.

    Your comments here are absolutely hilarious. In the first sentence you say that Team USA played poorly, and in the second sentence you say that the Japanese did not outplay us.

    Dude, you cannot have it BOTH WAYS.

    Again, you have been way, way too hard here in criticizing both the coaches and the players for the USA. To both an unreasonable and unfair extent.
