U.S. Soccer Prez Fires Back at Pay Gap Lawsuit, Women Make More Than Men
https://www.tmz.com/2019/07/29/u-s-s...rlos-cordeiro/

The pay shows the women earn a higher salary than the men even though the men bring in greater revenue. Yes, the men get more money but not from salaries. This is how their contracts were negotiated.

Uh, not so fast.

The women's team brought in more revenue, and won more championships than the men, too.

Reading your link list ticket sales revenue. In todayís sports itís more than ticket sales. Revenue includes television, radio, sponsors, and merchandising.

The only thing that sucks more than soccer is women's soccer.

They lost to a 15 and under boys team 5-2. My son knows someone that was just picked in the 1st round of the MLS draft. Says it's two different sports. You can't compare men's soccer to women's soccer.

That still doesn't justify underinvestment in the women's game and the dramatically lower salaries. See you in court.

Girls are not as good at sports. They should stick to cheerleading.

Well sure according to the US soccer federation leadership, they have nothing to fear if they can prove it in the courts which is now in arbitration. What is the point of that statement prior to the court case.
