Agreed. Playing for Team USA makes all the difference.
Lebatard and crew were making fun of Torts for saying that, whilst pretending staying within the liberal ESPN echo chamber of applauding Kaep is some "bold stance". Smh.
Wilbon said the same thing. Torts is being a "bully", and it doesn't matter because it's only hockey. If it was a "real sport" like basketball (ok) or track and field (wtf!?) then it would be a big deal.
Ha. Lebatard said the same thing. "It's easy because he's a hockey coach". Then Dan berated the anonymous NFL GM's that ripped Kaep as well. I'm pretty sure those GM's don't want the sjw Twitter lynch mobs calling for their jobs. God forbid someone have a differing opinion. Fuckin fascist bastards.
