England and Australia for the Gold?

How is the board going to deal with all the antipathy... or apathy between Richyyy and Luuuc?

I was hoping for an earthquake or something at 8-7 so the game would be stopped and they'd have to keep that as the result Smile. Things have gone rather predictably since then.

The big win for England was against Canada in the semis. This one was always a matter of how much rather than who.

I was going to say the stretch where she went 'coast-to-coast' for a layup, then gave up an easy backdoor layup and stuck her hip out for an offesnive foul was very Cambage-y. Then she dominated offensively, elbowed someone in the head, and whined her way into an ejection for a second tech. That was super Cambage-y.

Lauren Jackson was a pretty dirty player in her day, and she still managed to be revered.

Terrible comparison. LJ wasn't dirty, she just had a potty mouth and didn't take any crap from anyone. LJ was revered because she was a fierce competitor who didn't quit. Winning titles and being one of the greatest players in WNBA history didn't hurt either.

She’s not as blantant as Cambage, but she was plenty dirty. More like hard moving screens, yanking weaves, etc. I remember she did something pretty blantant to Dev Peters probably in her last year, but I can’t exactly remember what. Oh, and I remember she put her whole hand over Taj’s face and took her out of a play.

Unfortunately TinyPic seems to no longer be hosting my dirty play screenshots.

So, another big difference between LJ and Liz. "I am a bitch" vs. "These refs just don't know how to ref me"
Liz has probably exceeded LJ's career dirtiness in this one season alone. To me, intentionally injuring someone doesn't really compare with accidentally getting your hand caught in someone's weave, but I get that people's mileage varies when it comes to dirtiness. e.g. Plenty of people admire Taurasi's competitive nature whereas for me it has crossed the line too often.
