I'm getting so sick of the Far-Left and all their stupid stunts.
I'm getting damn sick and tired of the forced patriotism of the far-right. News flash, America isn't Soviet Russia and it never has because the founding fathers didn't want what Britian did to us in the 1770's. The right needs to stop being American idiots who blindly follow to presidente down whatever path he goes down and follow whatever stance he takes. Look at how many American idiots hang the flag on their truck even in the rain but wants every player to stand for the anthem or better yet catcalls during the anthem even if it isn't sung. I always say this but it never gets through to the American idiot crowd.

Hahahaha!!



You guys know I'm right.



You want me to stay on the topic of SOCCER? Okay...it's even more of a gap. Messi is paid (just in salary) $84 MILLION. Do you believe that the best female play on the planet is just as equal as Messi? Okay then, that's what you are arguing, and you know it's crazy talk.



Women's soccer leagues should not pay their best players what the EPL or La Liga or Bundesliga pays their top players, should it?

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
Soccer fans watch soccer regardless of who is playing. Who would have thunk it. I'm a hockey fan, I would watch women's hockey leagues if it was on television and there was a professional league. IMHO women's pro basketball is better than men's, I just like the more technical play in women's basketball, it is.more college like than the street ball you can have in pro men's basketball today.

The women generate as much from what I've seen. In 2015, I worked a friendly play match between team USA and team China, right off their second World Cup win. It had about 8,000 people. The men went to the same stadium and sold 4,000 tickets. I didn't work that game but my mother did and she was early released, we weren't for the US women's national team...

If the US men's national team was actually successful, I wouldn't be having this argument with you. The fact is they aren't.

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?
The WNBA to be fair doesn't sell the seats NBA does. WNBA teams is is on par with IFL (Indoor Football League) teams and this is coming from a fan of both. Both sell only 100 level tickets for the teams that play in Talking Stick Arena. The Suns depending on.who they play (because they suck) can sell all levels. The Rattlers the IFL team gives free 200 seats in limited sections.

At this point, no I would not. My mother saw far more fans at the women's game than the men's team.

No but it is a good deflection tactic. That said I think the men's and women's team are both successful on a similar level. Now the women's league compared to MLS is not even a question.

Okay I will stick to the topic.




Soccer is actually the most uneven gap. Messi is paid (just in salary) $84 MILLION. Do you believe that the best female play on the planet is just as equal as Messi?



Of course you don't, but cultural marxism says to you that EVERYTHING has to be equal, so it's your rules, not mine.

Go team USA!

I have no concerns or cares for their political beliefs! Go to Disneyland White House or AOC’s bar for all I care.

Oh well. The second best US women's team would still have been better than any other team on the planet.


So it's not like anyone didn't think these America-haters would not win.


Congrats to them. They can now go back to being nobodies.

Messi is paid at a level that I think only a Tom Brady is paid. Is it fair Brady gets that while rookies with great NCAA stats are paid the league's guaranteed minimum? Forget the gender gap, just think that. Maybe Alex Morgan would deserve that if there was money behind a women's league like there is for MLS. She is the closest to Messi in quality of play. And no this isn't cultural Marxism so stick your talking points where it will do the most good.

At least you admit that Morgan was better than that Trump-hater Rapinoe.


Yet the coach still gave her all the PKs.


Nope, there was absolutely no agenda there.
