The British had the same debate that their uniforms weren't Red, White and Blue enough. Maybe it's just that those colours aren't in fashion this year. NZ choose black and no other country has that colour.

@OldOllie I find my Fox-hating to be quite independent of my political views. I'm a perpetual advocate of fair and balanced, i.e. rational. This pesky attitude of mine keeps putting me at odds with Fox. I guess that's my exceptionalism, whatever that is! He's saying we've lost "that jingoistic feeling", thereby wrapping himself in ignorance of history as much as he wraps himself in the flag. I've heard wild foxes yelp, but never heard a fox whine as much as this Fox.

What I find amusing is how there is the obsession with patriotic colours. USA get red, whit and blue, which also comprise the Australian flag. So we get stuck with green and gold. Which is really green and yellow. Are you kidding me, it usually looks crap. Look at most of the Australian team outfits over the years, sucky is not a strong enough word. So it amuses me that they talk on length about this, because in Australia every Olympics usually has the media going on about how damn awful our athletes look, specifically because they are stuck with our team colours.

Uh oh, I guess the US needs another disaster like 9/11 to re-boost the Patriotism like it did back in 2001.

I found nothing in this discussion that could possibly offend anyone other than a Fox-hating liberal bigot.

There is so much wrong inside those 2 talking heads... Not only are they speculative of what it all means, even their premises are ridiculous.

In case you missed that... We lost that jingoistic feeling. You know... your good old fashioned quality home grown jingoism.

"Jingoism is extreme patriotism in the form of aggressive foreign policy."

In Fox's opinion, patriotism is all about how badly we want to destroy and dominate people who are not us. Simple as that. You aren't other humans, you are enemies.

I doubt there are many sports fans here, but anyone remember the Chris Collinsworth interview of Kobe Bryant for the 08 olympics? I'm of the impression most olympic athletes regardless of their country feel the same way Bryant did/does while most political talking heads feel the same way Collinsworth openly expressed.

They are representing USA and traditionally the outfits are flag colors. I agree.

I'm afraid to say that...I kind of agree with this...personally I drating hate this year's uniforms. Hardly any reference to our colors. However, I don't think it's the athlete's fault, it's the designer's. But for this to be a major concern as Fox News is making it seem, it's a bit petty. I for one am very proud of our country...maybe not our government, but certainly our country.

"English". Ugh.

Also patriotism to such an extent is a disease. You can be proud, but why be a douche about it?
