There's humanist education for you
.I've no idea what you originally posted and edited but,if you go back and read,I said absolutely NOTHING about the players' mindset(which one would expect to be far different);I commented on the FANS here at TF who,especially Europeans,act like helpless spoiled infants who expect everything to be handed to them in life and have NO CONCEPT of the toughness of athletic competition...as if there were some great tragedy for anyone other than Brie Whitehead to appear in Petra's draw.
I can't even count how many times I've seen neurotic panic such as,'Ohhhh,this draw!
' here at TF.Perhaps some so-called sports fans should learn from the players themselves.I'm quite sure that the Brit WC futbol club team wouldn't say,'We drew Spain in our group!Let's quit and go home!
'...at least aye HOPE that they wouldn't react that way
