Political statement?

You could replace four members of Brazil's soccer team with the Jamaican bobsled team, and they still would not give up seven goals. They threw the Germany game as an act of protest against the military-dominated government spending so much on hosting the World Cup and Olympics, instead of on law/order, or helping ease the tremendous poverty in which so many Brazilians live.

The team took away the government's ability to say, "The country may be pretty effed-up, but at least we brought home the World Cup." This was a heroic protest that came at great personal cost to the athletes, and great emotional cost to the nation — but might be a turning point in the fight for economic justice in Brazil, and internationally.
