I don't subscribe to karma; that would mean every bad thing that happened to us did so because we deserved it. Instead I take great comfort from the general unfairness of the universe because at least that's equal.
As for the women's team, I would say these kind of things tend to happen when you stop being focused on success and become distracted by things that ultimately do not help you. But what could I possibly know? I'm just a product of Whiteness.
We have a similar problem here with some National sports teams.
Our Soccer Team also took the knee... and held up the so-called aboriginal flag... to support BLM a marxist political organisation... Sorry girls I've been a big fan but no longer, stick to sport and forget politics.
Perhaps the fact Australia now has an american coach may have something to do with it...
There are American athletes that denounced America, such as the American women's national team.
American sports fans will renounce athletes that renounce America. We will see Americans rooting against the women's national team.
Sweden 3 - USA 0
Brazil 5 - China 0
