would rather watch the Nat'l Womens team than the "men", unless I'm in the mood for a comedy

Pulisic would run circles around the entire women's team by himself.

Would be devastation on an even greater level.
I've played some ice hockey with/against pro women... There is no comparison whatsoever between them and even a 3rd tier male pro (ECHL level) or a top-tier beer-leaguer.

Even an average high schooler (in MN at least) would have a good shot at beating them.


Keep in mind, when these women do play boys, there is no hitting/checking allowed.


Add that in and it would be even more of a bloodbath.

"Talks have stalled", according to SJW Rapinoe, regarding their efforts.


They will accept nothing less than totally equal pay.

The women do not deserve equal pay as the men. Why? Because no one wants to pay to see them play. They don't generate money. So what if they did better in their league than the men did? Should players on the best team in the WNBA get paid more than the worst in the NBA? Of course not. Again, the audience for WNBA is minuscule compared to the NBA. Same thing with soccer. People don't really want to see women play soccer or basketball for obvious reasons. I can't believe this is even a debate for some people.
