    Their actions were extremely unsportsmanlike.

This is not a phenomenon unique to these women or this sport, many professional sportsmen and women over the top celebrate. In this instance it is particularly deplorable because they were utterly crushing the other side and it was completely unnecessary.

    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.

Feminists often complain of this. You couldnt walk into the Lexus dealership drool over the Lexus LS and say I want that car, but I'm only prepared to pay Ford Focus money for it.

Mens football as you say commands significantly more money, as a product, as a thing... Mens football or soccer... call it what you will, is simply much more valuable, therefore its worth more money. Therefore those involved get paid more. Its basic capitalism.
