i don't know if i see it as a sign of disrespect, but i totally agree with it being a bogus claim. It's not world champions. It's USA and Canadian champions. Unless they do a tournament involving teams from different countries and leagues i don't see how they can properly use the term 'world champions.'
heck. why stop there? why not Champions of the UNIVERSE?
