    Sexism or racism will be their only predictable reply.

    I feel like there's gonna be 3 sides to this - the Women's team, the federation's and the truth.

    I saw a blurb about the way they factored in salaries paid by their respective leagues (ie outside the national team) fudged the numbers, looking at number of games played etc... (something about the women's team having played more games)

    I have heard it is based on a percentage of what they brought in. That includes tickets, souvenirs, etc. The men brought in a ton more in revenue then they did so got paid more. Kind of the liberal you got more because you earned more so I want part of that.

    Since I am not a follower of pro sports I have to ask if tickets to see the females play soccer are the same as seeing the big boys, I mean men. I would think interest and such would determine price.

    They are not even close to the same. The men sell far more tickets and have far more viewers on TV. And the men’s team sucks ass lol!

    I was arguing with my wife the other day that pro women's soccer is on the performance and speed level of a high school boys team, and that is why their pay is less and why they draw less fans. Of course she disagreed, so I told her if that I'd shut up about it if the US women's team could beat the worst men's college team. Then Rush Limbaugh read an interview from North Carolina's women's coach where they claimed that they practice college girls against boys teams. They only play boys 15 and younger because over 15 they just slaughter the girls and they gain no experience from it. So these women are getting paid a lot of money to play on a high school level. I feel the reason these women were bitching that the men's soccer team played the same day as them is because the speed and power difference becomes so apparent when watching these games so close together.
