The Soviets were an embarrassment. They were world-class players, no question. But by masquerading themselves as amateurs, winning a bunch of tournaments against scrubs from every other country and acting as though it was some sort of amazing feat, it lacks nobility and sportsmanship. That's something I won't ever respect.
This is the most sad, pathetic, delusion and biased thing I have ever read on a sports internet board that I actually started laughing.

It's like you totally believe that Soviet should have had the exact same culture and views as Canada and that Stanley Cup and your Canada Cup were their biggest goals. Disregarding every fact that, you know, not everybody share the same culture as Canada when it comes to ice hockey?

Like honestly believing that for a Spanish kid growing up his biggest goal in life should be to win the Premier League and if he goes to Real Madrid and wins titles there and celebrates he is an embarrassment and lack sportmanship.
