There are tons of articles online covering this and other aspects. If women want the same pay, they are going to have to pull in the same revenue, it is pretty simple.

This lawsuit will go no where, at that, anyone can file with the EEOC, it means nothing regarding the legitimacy of a complaint.
You are right---however that last line is dependant upon the intelligence of the jury. And seeing some of the jury settlements that have come out-anything is possible.

Yes, we all agree that you trusted their lawyer who intentionally left out TV revenue, the largest source of profit. Now that you know, you're just too invested.

You are clearly not educated in any sort of financial analysis or accounting and have so emotionally invested you'll never admit you got scammed by their press release but I think I've educated people as to what is going on.

A blatant attempt to publically shame US Soccer by lying to and using people that don't know any better.

Again, maybe they do have a case for more pay but they aren't presenting one honestly which means it's unlikely to be reality.

Let's see - because your daughter is on an all boys team - the exception rather than the rule - I'm not a soccer person? What are you talking about and what does this have to do with professional women's soccer? Did you accidentally respond to the wrong thread?

You apparently don't know the meaning of the word "discrimination". You do understand that compensation in professional sports generally has something to do with performance? You're also aware that the vast majority of women who play professional sports can't perform on the same level as men, right? Now, connect the dots: not discrimination.


Some of my coworkers get paid more than me because they have been deemed to be better performers. That's not discrimination.


You may find dictionary.com and other online resources to be of value before using a word incorrectly.

No I was responding to your post and again the fact that you can't understand it proves my point about your lack of knowledge about the Soccer Profession.

The fact that men are superior to women in sports is not the issue if you bothered to take time to at least read through some of the discussion. Why is reading so difficult.

So explain to me why US men are paid so much more for “performance “ , this should prove interesting. The women’s team won 3 world cups and 4 gold medals, the men’s team hasn’t won anything in a century.

The two paragraphs contradict.

If the first paragraph is true, then no explanation is needed.

If explanation is needed, then the first paragraph cannot be true, and your womens team winning is at best an apples to oranges comparison, akin to why Minor League players receive lower salaries than Major League players, be that soccer, football, basketball, ice hockey, etc.

Performance against other national women’s teams, men’s and women’s soccer are two separate entities.
