Having played hundreds of soccer games and watched countless games live and on TV, I can truthfully say that I have never seen a soccer game played with more disgraceful crudity than that produced by the Canadian women's team against Costa Rica on March 1.

The Canadian women showed no respect for their opponents, smashing into them repeatedly, and the hailstorm of fouls and yellow cards against Canada attested to that. This was a shameful distortion of a beautiful game. Maybe our women should invest in skates and hockey sticks and consider playing a game where that type of behaviour is tolerated.

Ernie Kuyt,
