And they DO care, or should, because they are professional athletes who WANT people to come to their games so they CAN BE PAID.

You DO KNOW there is a public issue, even a thread about it here, on HOW much they are paid.

By turning off SOME potential fans, they could suffer at the ticket counter, just as pro football suffered when they let politics enter their games, and they would NOT like that! They DON'T get that many fans now.
lol Sure.

The idea that those who don't watch women's soccer anyway, really won't watch it because they don't like what one of the players is ridiculous. I'm surprised anyone posted something so silly.

Those who won't watch exciting soccer games with kick-ass teams, their loss.

The funny part is the 3/4th empty stadiums this whole women's WC. That is the truly comical part. That and Rapinoe b----ing about how the women deserve equal pay as the men (who far more often fill stadiums and get higher ratings).


It will be really funny today if the stadium is half full.

It is a lesser product. Except for maybe figure skating, and synchronized swimming, what women's sport isn't a lesser product than men's? The simple economics is that they don't get the viewers due to the fact, therefore don't get the revenue that the men do. Just a fact.

Of course it is. The best women hockey players on the planet get beaten by average boys high school hockey teams. Rapinoe's lies aren't fooling anyone who has half sense.

So remember today as you're watching these best women soccer players on the planet - it's basically the talent level of your average boys high school team. Lol

Any thread about women goes down the toilet fast on this site because it's full of sexist men.

I feel like Megan Rapinoe doesn't give two chits what angry old men think about her.
