    I post this in disgust at the disrespect of America's flag.

    I think the cheering was for the athletes at the end of the song as they always cheer at the end of the ceremony.

    It was an accident... and the Brits were not cheering the flag falling, they were cheering the American receiving his gold medal... and, the Brits do not understand the whole flag on the ground thing.

    Calm down, dear, you're making an ass of yourself.

    Again, they don't understand the 'disrespect'. We do. Have a cow if you want but you're just making a fool of yourself.

    I see no disrespect. When the flag falls, the predominant sound is one of gasps. When the anthem stops, the crowd cheers...the athletes, not the falling of the flag.
