I demand the entire Canadian women's team get kicked out of Vancouver! What they did was far more public and disrespectful than anything Lago did.
But, they'll get nothing.
I wish snowboarders would just boycott the Olympics. The Olympics want them there because that's what people want to see, but they don't really want them there. They want them to compete and then disappear so they can highlight the "traditional" sports that they want to push.
The womens hockey team apologized and so did Scotty Lago, what makes his apology less meaningful that theirs? If the IOC thinks this poorly of snowboarders they shouldn't have added the sport in the first place.
By twenty-three you should have a pretty good sense of what to do and not do in public. It's an honor to get into the Olympics and to publicaly disrespect it like that just shows he's just another half-wit American to the world. Great. He furthered the world's view that all Americans actually behave like this. He's a representer of a country. He should behaving more respectfully, not like white trash.
The IOC to kick him out of Vancouver? Pretty good punishment in my opinion. Knock 'em hard the first time so other stupid people won't follow in his footsteps, and he won't do it again.
