U.S. women's hockey team boycott - USA Hockey takes another wrong turn in talks with women's team
Fielding replacement players during labor disputes has shown to be a futile negotiating tactic. But that's another lesson lost on USA Hockey in its bungled talks with its women's national team.

“Blake Bolden, a player for the NWHL’s Boston Pride, says she hasn’t been a member of the U.S. national team pool since 2014, so when she saw the USA Hockey email in her inbox Wednesday, “I didn’t even have to open it – I knew what it was about, and I thought, ‘Well, the national team women must be doing something right for things to get to this.’"It’s a bit desperate by USA Hockey,” Bolden added. “They’re going so far as to email every hockey player they can think of, or every player that was in the USA pool that they previously cut and told they were never going to reach out to again. And everyone I know is telling them, 'I support the national team.’”

I waited 10 years for this moment.

When Mesut Özil scored the goal I was happy but I already knew that wouldn’t be just it…and then…13mins later there was the penalty shoot. 

Then penalty shoots…when it comes to this, it’s not about skills or talent anymore it’s sheer luck. But no worries … we have MANUEL FUCKING NEUER

slaying. being a GOD. 

And after never winning against Italy in a tournament, we finally beat history. Die Mannschaft made it. I waited 10 years for this moment. 

And now shit’s probably going down in the German cabins.
