Casey's I-Hate Americans Right On
English golfer Paul Casey comes out and tells the world, the European Ryder Cup team “properly hate” Americans, adds he personally thinks they’re “stupid” and everyone’s in a uproar? Suddenly, Casey’s telling reporters that he has an American girlfriend and an American coach, backtracking like one of those dimwits who says something obviously racist and then justifies it with an “I have plenty of black friends.”
Please! Anyone who’s offended needs to get over it. And Casey needs to get over himself.
This is what we want in sports. What sports has needed for a long time. Real, genuine rivalries with a little loathing behind them. You better believe the European Ryder Cup team despises the American all-star squads and their perceived (let’s face it, it’s real) smugness.
Why do you think the Europeans have been kicking American tail in the Ryder Cup recently?
Because they’re better golfers? Please, this is all about who wants it more, frankly about who hates the other side too much to lose. Maybe if Tiger and Phil built up a little animosity, a little emotion at all for the Ryder Cup competition, the U.S. would not be getting embarassed in competitions its talent dictates it should dominate. Instead Phil and Tiger mope around about being partnered together, without daring to actually say that they – gasp! – practically hate each other and would rather be paired up with a stray Pit Bull.
And if you think Casey’s saying enough about Americans that other Europeans haven’t been saying, you have not been paying any attention to recent world events. We’re not very popular right now. Which might not be great for the global situation, but can’t we at least embrace what it can give us in sports.
Real rivalries, real vengeful showdowns where it’s really not just about the money. Here’s hoping Paul Casey goes absolutely Ron Artest at the 2006 Ryder Cup. Hit Tiger Woods over the head with a nine-iron and he might even flash a pulse.

I guess Bush won re-election as karma for all past misdeeds of the US: killing nationalistic General of Chile to put Pinochet in power, supporting Marcos and his torture/death of peaceful Filipinos, ramming that Japanese boat with US submarine, etc. I wouldn't be surprised if the Euro becomes the world currency and the USA, the greatest debtor in the world, is forced to start paying for its debts and goes bankrupt. Ha ha!
What amazes me is how a player can live in the U.S. , go to school in the U.S. , and even have a girlfriend who is American and still play on a Euro team .If we really want to be fair shouldn't the teams consist of people who actually live in the Country they supposedly represent?
As for you Cathy , Titleist has the right to sponsor who they want to sponsor . It has nothing to do with Americans and their ability to accept criticism . I personally don't care what a third world idiot has to say , that is MY right . Why don't you make sure you only use equipment from your country and leave the technically superior American equipment for people with more intelligence. Oh and be sure to stock up on that euro currency too because that is just what the world wants , a currency that depends on all of Europe to vote and agree on everything , that is sure to last.
If you had heard the whole quote, Casey was specifically referring to American Ryder Cup GOLFERS (as opposed to the entire population) and their disgusting behaviour on the golf course (previous cup). You Americans do not know just how offensive all that screaming, shouting and whooping can be to golfers, ESPECIALLY while running around a golfer who is just about to play his shot !
And whoever cannot understand why that behaviour is offensive and disrespectful to a golfer is stupid. And if you think it's 'just sour grapes', then that confirms your own stupidity and your lack of understanding of the word 'honour'. Europe has lost to America many times and have always treated you with nothing but complete respect (including the crowd).
Before you take the Casey remarks as further opportunity to rail over 'third world' countries, your 'rights' as an American citizen, and if we let you, presumably some guff about white supremacy, Jesus dying for us all, and assorted additional ignorant invective. Consider this. The remarks were massaged by the scum end of the British media to MAKE A HEADLINE.
Casey is an aggressive golfer, a talented golfer, an often brash bordering on arrogant young man.
He also took swimmingly to the US collegiate system AT THEIR INVITATION. Why do you think such scholarships are offered?? Duh. Go figure. If you want to get upset, get upset with your team of losers and chokers. To demonstrate such collective arrogance as the US team did at Brookline then not be able to take a soupcon back, that's what makes non-US onlookers laugh at your lack of irony, your crybaby loser whining, and your habit of converting a lack of self worth into preening xenophobic Nationalism.
Incidentally, that's team sport. You properly hate us.
Those extra long sentences are very impressive , can you play golf too? I find it very ironic that the very same asswipes that enjoy criticising the United States like it is a nationalized sport will throw out the xenophobe accusations at anyone from the U.S. that responds .Could you explain how you think you know so much about me? You assume a great deal from a very short post , I would have to think that it is you who is the ignorant one . White supremacy and Jesus? Please jerk , you don't have a clue about me .
I have spent enough time outside the U.S. to know that I want to stay here and spend all of my money here for now on . I also recommend to everyone that will listen to do the same .The golf is vastly superior , we don't play on goat ranches . We drive real cars on the correct side of the road , not souped up sewing machines and scooters .
Now if we could just keep scum like Paul Casey out , we could have a wonderful place to live. But then again we are a free country that allows any pile of crap from lesser places to come and rip us off . We will see how Pauly Casey does on a real golf tour playing real golf courses against real golfers without a team to lean on, I think he will find that American golfers play much harder when it comes to getting paid for your effort.
As for all of you that hate us so much . . . stay away and don't use our products jerks.
thankyou ,, j.jackson
