They make less money than I do.

Fair or unfair?

That is how it works, and the men's team towers over the women's team in all aspects.

Their "tasks" are similar but their ability is totally different. If the men's team played the women's team that would be brutally obvious. People are paid by ability and results not just the tasks they perform. Ms. Goodnight misses that concept, but virtue signals anyway. Pure B.S.

Women's world cup final vs. which mens world cup game?

The 2015 WWCF had 750M watching a minute or more of the game.

So FIFA 2018 Mens 1.7B viewers watched 1 minute or more. FIFA 2016 Women's 750M.

Again I'm no math whizz, but isn't 1.7B more than 750M?

Now I'm sure you could cherry pick a game in the 2018 World Cup, that had lower viewing figures than the 2015 WWCF, but it was not the final.
I posted the details of the women 2015, most viewed of any World Cup at the time. The US men didnít even qualify for the 2018 cup so why is that relevant.

Thatís not the point, the men bring in less revenue because of their failure against menís teams, their performance is deplorable compared to the women Mrs Pilot. I am a he by the way. Itís not about the men playing women itís about the enormous success against other women. Why is this such a difficult point.

Because it's the world cup.

The viewing figures of the Womens World Cup were international had to be there aren't 750M Americans, therefore it would be comparable to judge against the 2018 World Cup international viewing.

You cannot say it's the most viewed soccer event then disqualify the mens events because they didn't include USMNT. That's completely deceptive. Apples to apples.

Sorry, I wasn't trying to be disrespectful, for some reason I thought I recalled you were female. Not taking away from their success against other women. However women vs women success is NOT equal ECONOMICALLY to men vs men success or even failure. Comprende? Their "client" (viewership, tv revenue, etc) is smaller than the men's "client". Thus their compensation is less. In harsher terms? Their product is inferior to the men's. I'm not taking anything away from women's sports, nor female athletes.
