NB....when US losing, this kind of thing get written. During the last Ryder at USA, wah piang, the media start to write...US so good, proved a point, eye of the tiger in no-tiger show......then now throw this kind of freaking statement....obligation crap .....


Quote :
NEWPORT, Wales -- Welcome into a very bad dream. You know it as the 2010 Ryder Cup, but the biannual golf showdown between Europe and the United States on Sunday may already have been lost -- the causality being American interest not to mention the team's wet socks appeal.

With each and every raindrop that fell all night and into the early morning, and then sporadically during the afternoon, competition at Celtic Manor became less significant and more an obligation -- at least for the U.S.


My suggestion to this media chap....tell the PGA to send the worst of the worst players...and then see how long they can tolerate the brutal 'bullying'.

I donno about this media chap, but I like team event....tats why I look forward to saddam people.

That is USA for u man. In whatever sport they play, they always name themselves world champion. I am really hoping a whitewash for the singles game so that they can reaaly shut the mouth of the Americans. But knowing them, they will say bad course conditions. But think of it, it was the bad course conditions that gave them the lead after day 1.

That's Americans for you. They take their competitions seriously. My American colleague says that when they even trash talk with other Americans when play golf, basketball, their fav NFL team play against one another. During the game, it's war. Other that it's all cool. Am not surprised the USA media writes like tat. They just love to win in anything.

I have to agree with Duffader here. When I was living in the US, you hardly hear any news about life outside the US. If it ain't the US being ahead, it doesn't get much publicity.

Don't get me wrong, you can't really blame them. With a country so big, there's more than enough news to print. They have to be selective. Why focus on an event which doesn't glow? Stuff like that doesn't make the newspapers fly off the shelves.

no one wants to read about their team/country being trashed, or read about an obscure spot that they don't perform well in, i.e soccer, cricket, rugby(they still think their football is da bomb)

I think US playing badly cos their uniform is so FUGLY!!! The US Boys looks so uncomfortable wearing the outfits am pretty sure its playing mind games with them...

Look at Europe, they look so sharp in their outfits, it just adds confidence to their game!!!

i believe the dressing problems are due to corey pavin... and i agree with techospaz... there is just so much stuff going on in the US that the media will always be selective of the news it prints... lets not forget that the media guys are just in it for the money too... haha... if it can't sell, why print it...

however, on another note, i'm still a fan of the US team... please don't shoot me down...

Dun worry... you play with me, you get Captain's presence too. (Just to let you know, if he gets to know that i play golf on a weekday without informing him or asking him if he is free to join, i will be in very big trouble.)
