Dog, there are like 5 European countries that have better women's soccer teams than us. For the men it's all of them. Like even Iceland, Monaco, probably the Vatican. And that's a sport people care about.


There are 4. I don't think women's soccer teams ranking below Canada in, say, the netherlands, Italy, switzerland, spain, austria, denmark, belgium, etc, etc is because women in those countries aren't as socially free as in Canada.

It is a conspiracy by Big Oil to get more cars on the road so they can sell more gasoline.

Or just the Winter Para-Olympics.

Socially free isn't the same thing as being socially inclined to play sports.

I think it's mostly funding in the west and funding plus social norms in the east. But I admit I hardly know anything about eastern European culture.

I don't think swedish chicks are active but danes aren't. I also don't think Canadian men are so much less active than portuguese men that it would explain the difference in men's soccer rankings. I'd guess it has alot more to do with the fact women's events are newer and Canada got in from the get go with high level trainingg in those -sorta like doing backflips on skis in the winter olympics.

yall should just do some old fashion nation building. Best value for your coup d'etat dollars would be a Canadian takeover of Hungary. Yall would move in to the top 10 of the medal count.

we've gotten to know a family down the road who raise and sell horses for this industry. They take a physical pounding, I'd rather my kids played football than did equestrian. Pretty shady business though.
