I love that Heather O'Reilly was willing to so vocally disagree with Rob Stone in the post-game show, telling him not taking it easy on an opponent is the best way to show them respect. And all of the former players agreed with her on it.
Rob Stone, who felt U.S. should have called off the dogs, was told “the best way to show respect” is to keep playing hard. That’s fair. But dance celebrations at 10-0, 11-0, 12-0, 13-0? Does that also fall under showing respect?
Rob Stone’s call for mercy on the #USAvTHA game is uncalled for. This win was no disrespect to Thailand and calling it such is a gross misjudgment. The game was clean and maxed out our subs. Intentionally playing down would have been the true disrespect. #FIFAWWC #USWNT https://t.co/X0EbjtuoWw
Super annoyed by Rob Stone commenting that the USWNT should have "pulled back" instead of racking up the goals. Goal differential is a tie breaker here. And I'm wondering if he would make the same point if the men's team (LOLOLOLOLOLOL) beat someone 13-0.
lol Rob Stone is really out here saying USWNT should have patronized Thailand by scoring less? cmon man, grow up
Every single former player on this panel shook their heads when Rob Stone said they should've dialed it back.
Rob Stone is every coach I've ever had to explain goal differential to in a tourney setting. Don't like it? Then don't have a goal differential tiebreaker.
Thank goodness for Rob Stone for having the cajones to say that #USWNT should've pulled back.
While the rest of the panel pretended this was literally war b/w two countries.
"Thailand need to improve". Oh, you mean putting 13 past them will make them realize this? Jokers.
Rob Stone with a loser, PC reaction to the #USWNT’s dominant performance today. I love how each of the analysts who played the sport were in agreement against him.
Remember folks, raise your kids to compete & go for the kill. They will be unprepared for the world if you don’t. https://t.co/KDOhu7DxX0
Rob Stone getting hammered by Kelly, Heather, Ariane and Alexi for saying the US should have let off the gas has me in stitches 😂 #USATHA https://t.co/DyM7X3Cu72
No one told the Men’s German national team to slow it down on THE SEMIFINALS of the 2014 World Cup when they beat Brazil 7-1. Why should the #USWNT have to do it?? Sit down, Rob Stone. #LFG
In fact, Rob Stone, they did win with class...some might even call it World Class. Like best in the world. https://t.co/DhBuF5NYVT
It would be cool if Rob Stone let Heather O’Reilly finish a sentence.
Rob Stone, not a world cup winner: i would have liked to see some mercy there.
Heather O'Reilly, WORLD CUP WINNER: USA respected Thailand by keeping at them
Rob Stone is saying the US should’ve pulled back.
FS1's Rob Stone wanted a little sympathy for Thailand. Panel disagreed. There is really no good way to handle such a mismatch.
Rob Stone suggesting the USWNT should have let off the throttle and immediately getting lambasted by the former women's players was just fantastic. It's the World Cup buddy, not a throwaway game up in Rochester. #USA
Hey Rob Stone...you don’t take your foot off the gas ever, especially when you’re trying to gear up to win a world championship.
"This got humiliating at some point and just became an exercise in target practice. ...You know what I want them to do, pull it back, knock it around." Maybe the host of Fox's Women's World Cup coverage should be aware of WWC tiebreaking procedures? https://t.co/SfEgzmff2b
Rob Stone... Wtf are you talking about. We're we supposed to just pass the ball around for 60 minutes. Cause this game was over in the first 30
You want the US to take their foot off the gas!?!. In a competition for the world cup🤔🤔. No Thailand needed to stop them and they did not do that. It’s not usa’s job to pull back just because Thai couldn’t stop them. That’s not how the game works. Shame on rob stone #USAvTHA
Rob stone you know nothing 😂😂 it is way more disrespectful to stop playing your game and make Thailand chase a ball around the pitch than it is to keep scoring. Playing keep away like they’re your little sister is what would be disrespectful.
Someone needs to explain to Rob Stone how sports, sportsmanship, and just as importantly, goal differential as a tiebreaker factor in tournaments work. Either that or maybe he should just smile more. https://t.co/GpKlvlkpky
Rob Stone get off my TV now! #WWC2019
Rob stone is a jackass
“The USA should have just knocked the ball around”
Being respectful to the other team is to keep pushing as hard as you can and the USA did just that
Wow... great win, solid performance and we get an announcer getting all bummed out come on FOX be better. Rob Stone that was just stupid! Its would have been worse just passing the ball around. #USWNT
I agree with Rob Stone on this.
It’s not THAT the #USWNT scored 13 goals on Thailand today, it’s HOW they scored the 13 goals and how they celebrated after the goals that they scored.
I mean really, Alex Morgan giving the 1, 2,3,4 fingers thing after her 4th goal?
Congratulations to Rob Stone. The only one on Fox set with class and sportsmanship. All this proves is that women's soccer is a joke
Curious if Rob Stone said the German national team should have eased up on Brazil in their 7-0 demolition in the 2014 WC out of “sportsmanship” and respect for the host nation but I have a hunch he nor anyone else had that take.
Rob stone thought the USA should have backed off and kept the score down. Heather O'Reilly had it right, play until the final whistle.
I seen rob stone trending I was like wtf but it’s just some white guy
Rob Stone Suggests The USWNT Should’ve Eased Up, Gets Soundly Rejected https://t.co/x9kVxZQzYJ
via @deadspin - need to do a wellness check on @RobStoneONFOX
. He must have fallen on his head after all those goals.
now this ain’t what we’re about to do...EVERY fucking person on this planet, man or woman besides Rob Stone is saying they should’ve kept scoring. shut tf up about the “would you have told the men’s team to not keep scoring” be quiet. gender has NOTHING to do w this subject. https://t.co/JLgySMzVln
Well yeah, this is my point. The tournament is structured so that all teams are incentivized to score as many group stage goals as possible in every game. Rob Stone didn't seem to understand this.
Anyone else think the Rob Stone trend was about the rapper?

Rob Stone thinks the Allied Invasion of Normandy during WWII was impolite, unnecessary, and perhaps even counter-productive as Hitler would have folded regardless...
