Its homerism at its finest. I can't wait to see what we'd read if Canada loses their grasp on their most coveted medal

You silly sally. Remember! If you have nothing nice to say, don't say anything at all

Big time homerism.

I guess because the games are being held in Canada, that somehow relates to how the mens figure skating was judged.

The article was written a week ago and not even by a Russian. Pravda is a joke newspaper these days as well.

That said, the Olympics have been far from perfect and have made me think less of Canada as a country and Vancouver as a city.

This guy is like the Drew Remenda of journalists. If his team isn't winning, it couldn't possibly be the good efforts of the other team that have turned the tide. It has to a conspiracy, poor officiating or a misalignment in the cosmos.

Nothing to see here but utterly classless sour grapes.

Oh for the love of... Stop making a big deal out of some trashy newspapers article. They want you to react to it. The best thing is to do is what you do with trolls on the Internet, you ignore them.

What I find funny is these people actually believe Canada has any say in International Sports.

The USA almost exclusively pays for the Olympics through TV contracts. Without that, those IOC execs wouldn't be flying around in private jets, living like kings. Can you say "Flojo?"

The abject cruelty shown by Canadian soldiers in international conflicts is scantily referred to, as indeed is the utter incapacity of this county to host a major international event, due to its inferiority complex, born of a trauma being the skinny and weakling bro to a beefy United States and a colonial outpost to the United Kingdom, whose Queen smiles happily from Canadian postage stamps.
Ridiculous... Garbage article, but still...

The best part is "accusations of doping". Didn't like 4 Russian skiers actually get caught doping?

If there was an award for not using logic, whoever wrote that Russian article would win.
