That's all I'm saying.


It's pretty laughable that Rapinoe thinks women's sports deserves to be paid equally to men.
Apparently you are a fair weather fan who knows nothing about elite level female athletes based on your previous post regarding an “average “ boys high school team being capable of beating them

You are also off base regarding viewership as has already been pointed out

Finally the women do deserve equal pay to suggest otherwise is laughable

Should women’s tennis players take a pay cut too? They get equal prize shares to men at the majors though overall there remains a discrepancy

YOURE the one who has the knickers in the biggest knot! How many posts do you have in this thread??
If those awful men who are saying this only because they can't get an ugly hateful feminist to be with them, are SO awful, why do they bother you so much????

Is it because they are correct and you're trying to convince yourself they are not?
Not everyone worships women's soccer and thinks its the greatest sport ever, nor does everyone feel women athletes are superior to male athletes Sheesh get a hobby. lmao

Well, ***** her and her American hating @zz. I hope that true Americans will boycott her and any of the products she will be endorsing in the future... The only thing people like her understand is a hard hit to their wallets.

I'm getting so sick of the Far-Left and all their stupid stunts.

I agree with everything you said except that women deserve equal pay. I think the pay should be proportionate to the revenue each team generates. Considering the women have a chance to win their second World Cup in a row and the men didn't make the last World Cup there is a chance the women could be generating more revenue soon.

None of these athletes should make their sport POLITICIZED. In this instance she bashed the very country and President she represents to get her 15 minutes of "Woke" fame so she can get a Nike contract, or a contract from another Virtue Signaling SJW corporation. It is all about greed, fame, and money with these hypocrites. The low information types defend them.

I know more than you think.


The best women hockey players get beat by average MINNESOTA high school hockey teams. That's a dead straight FACT.


I'm okay with women's tennis players getting equal pay, but it ends there.



Do you truly believe that WNBA players deserve to be paid $30 MILLION a year, like NBA stars? Are you seriously saying this?

Would you believe the men's team generates more revenue, the men's team that hasn't even won a world cup and didn't even qualify last time around. The women are playing in their 4th world cup in 20 years so its more than a chance that they generate more revenue.

This is not about the WNBA or women's hockey, this is about the US soccer federation but women's tennis is an excellent example. Women's tennis is pretty close to equity in prize money.
