Their actions were extremely unsportsmanlike.

Also initially I was quite angry to hear that they were getting paid less than the male counterpart...untilllll....more data was supplied.

The mens soccer generates a LOT more revenue than the females team does and they get a 9% cut versus the 13% the womens team gets though generating far less revenue.

Some of these cries of inequality are just crying wolf.

I am not sure, at least for me, that what a professional athlete makes matters much. It is more an issue, at least for women on the whole, about when they make less for having the same skill and doing the same work. That varies by sector, but to me that matters more.

Women or men in soccer are making millions of dollars and it should be based on revenue. What percentage that is, has more to do with negotiating, but should be similar for both. Or at least one would hope.


I am not really for the rubbing it in when you keep scoring. Like you would celebrate the first goal. That said, just like with US football, I am of the school that the other team's job is to stop you. I do have some asides to that, but if we are talking at the professional level than it is true. That is rubbing it enough though, I am more in the camp that you act like you have been there before and move on. The scoring is rubbing it in enough.
