Olympics  > General Olympics  > U.S. BOXING fiasco (MENS)

Heard the latest about team U.S.A.? For the first time in it's history, the United States FAILED (miserably I might add) to medal on the MEN'S team, and left with their heads shoved so far up their 4th point of contact, they could see their own "sheet" coming down the pipe.

NOT ONLY THAT, but reports are surfacing that the team COACH wasn't even accredited with credentials, and had to be ESCORTED through to the matches!!! WTF people? Who is in charge of OVERSEEING this team and the coaches? Time to start burning some bridges, and starting over from scratch....or just dump the ENTIRE team program for men, and insert MMA into the mix........LOL.


James Toney calls USA Olympic men's boxing team 'garbage'...worst ever!....

The much touted American men's boxing team that exited the Olympics without a medal for the first time were "garbage" and not worth watching, the multiple weight world champion James Toney has said.

The nine men from America were expected to right the wrongs of the Beijing Games, where the USA took home one bronze, their worst Olympic performance, but they failed to live up to the hype in London.

Toney, who won world titles at middleweight, super middleweight and cruiserweight and now holds the IBU heavyweight title, was not impressed.

"Worst team ever. B-Class," the 43-year-old said. "They weren't worth watching, every single one of them was garbage."

Maybe as a penalty, they should make every coach be forced to "walk the gauntlet" of a U.S. Army military training school, like RANGER school, and get hazed to death. Plss Poor management skills all around.
