Women’s Soccer Gets Paid Less Than Men’s Because The People Whining About It Won’t Watch Another Soccer Game Until 2023

 

Loading...

The US Women’s Soccer Team won their second World Cup in a row, which is bold, brave, and beautiful. Of course it’s brought up the inevitable demands for equal pay, and even the fans got into it. But the people who are demanding it are the main reason why they get paid less to begin with. Click here to read about why on TB Daily News.

    You want to get paid like a man? Be talented enough to play on the men’s team.
    Problem solved… Personally, I don’t mind women’s sports but for the most part they’re JV compared to the men’s

    that vapid kunt Kirsten Gillabrand should share some of her enormous collection of dildoes and vibartors with the @USWNTLGBQT#[email protected] then the world’s problems would all go away.

    I think like most Turtle Riders, I was actively cheering for the Netherlands and AGAINST THE USA! When America won I was disgusted and I wanted to express my disgust against the SJW dykes. So I was buck naked in my living room squatting like a catcher over an American flag, ready to spray it with the DIARRHEA OF FREEDOM! And I saw the slut RAPEpino disgrace the flag by dropping it. DISGUSTING!

    The men get paid by an entirely different organization. The women do not. When they get people actually paying to see them they can then ask for a raise. Here is an idea. A U.S women’s soccer league. Every psyched? Better get your tickets quickly. I guess they can always let transgendered betas play too.

      “The men get paid by an entirely different organization. The women do not.”
      WTF? You mean “The women do not get paid by an entirely different organization?” Because that’s how that’s interpreted.
      All due respect, this is even funnier than the REAL Rosie.

        Is that you?? OMG I though you passed away. My last English comp grade was a b- remember?
        You were so proud of me.
        Clearly you are still liberal. You always did sit on your high moral horse didn’t you. Always yapping but never really saying anything.
        Except when it came to your private life that is. The morality was not present.

        The only thing I do not understand is….why would you “like” your own comment?

    Their product sucks, why no one is buying it which is why they don’t make much money. Now if the progressive marxists and the media brainwash and gas light everyone into enjoying this product, then maybe they will make some money, but as for now, all of us know this emperor has no clothes on.

    These women are pro athletes, working hard but living the “best life ever.” They’re certainly well off. And these women pol’s are virtue-signaling for them? (Jealous much?) Sheesh! Lots already said on the pool of money available, the FACT that they’re paid from FIFA, an international but PRIVATE organization. The percentage they get is much better than the men. And what about USA leagues? The women can hardly draw an audience. Here in WNY we had the WNY Flash, comprising world-class players. They’re gone, moved to NC. They couldn’t get 3000 spectators for games. The victory tour after the last World Cup drew 13,000 in Rochester, but only because of hometown star Abby Wambach. If you can’t support the league under normal circumstances, then the players don’t deserve premium pay. We don’t need subsidies for pro athletes!

      I’m in Westfield Mass.
      Masslive: Last Year
      WESTFIELD – Before Westfield native Kacey Bellamy heads to PyeongChong, South Korea, for the Winter Olympics, her hometown supporters will wish her well with a Spirit Night.

      Amelia Park Ice Arena will co-host the event Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. along with the Bellamy family, the city of Westfield and Westfield Public Schools.

      Bellamy, a member of the U.S. women’s ice hockey team, is no stranger to the arena. She grew up playing hockey in Westfield and could get her own Olympic hat trick in PyeongChong this winter. She previously earned silver medals in both the 2010 and 2014 Games.

      This was before the gold. I have no animosity toward her. I congratulate her. I also don’t give a fuck she isn’t paid the same as a guy.

      She then went to Calgary as a pro in the CWHL.

      The CWHL folded this year.

      A week after the Calgary Inferno won the league championship and hoisted the Clarkson Cup trophy, the CWHL announced Sunday morning the 12-year-old league’s business model is economically unsustainable.

      The CWHL owns and operates the teams.

      Mind you, CANADA, eh? They don’t give a fuck either. I remember about a year ago, the players in this league were threatening to hold their breath and turn blue if the didn’t get paid. They demanded they be paid because they deserved it and the big bad league was sitting on bags of money.

      They didn’t get paid. There’s no more league.

    OK, I’m going to have to vent.

    1) “Soccer” is shit. Rugby is the proper code of football.

    2) In terms of speed, ability and skill women’s soccer is far, far worse than men’s. However they behave better on the field. Big fucking deal. The US women couldn’t beat my local fourth tier English men’s club, the world famous Crewe Alexandra.

    3) Bullshit they bring in the same revenues. The FA Premier League in England alone brings in over £4bn ($5bn) on their last 4 year TV deal and that’s just the UK domestic deal. European clubs championships also brings in eye-watering amounts of money because of the viewing demand in Europe. Women’s soccer brings in fuck all. Literally, fuck all.

    4) The only people paying equal prize money are the pussies at the All England Lawn Tennis Club at Wimbledon. How do we know they are pussies? Well, they don’t make the women play against the men for the prizes, for a start. Also the women only play best of 3 sets – you want equal prize money, at least play best of 5 like the fucking men have to.

    5) The women’s world cup got good audience figures throughout the tournament but now that it’s over the interest will wane again and people will just go back to watching the pinnacle of the game – the men’s version.

    Women’s soccer. What next? Monkey tennis?

    I think 2 major points keep getting missed. 1 that they don’t get paid from the US government, they are paid by FIFA. 2 they are not in the same revenue sharing pool as the men who WORLDWIDE have a much larger audience.

    Pay them. If it breaks the organization, the organization can start a GoFundMe.
    Or, the organization can raise the TV rights fees for anyone clamoring to show womens soccer.

    But, what about the WNBA? It has a contract.
    The WNBA would fold in a second if TV didn’t suck up to the NBA. Does anyone think it could survive on it’s own?

    This isn’t a knock against womens sports. You can’t force anyone to like something.

    I happen to like Curling. Stupidest fucking sport on the planet. NBCSN and the Olympic Channel show a lot of it. I bet when I turn it on and off I move the ratings needle by a noticeable amount. There’s actually someone watching a needle. When it moves someone says “That’s z”.

      My suggestion is that all advertising revenue and revenue generated by ticket sales go into a special fund, managed by congress. At the end of the year this money gets distributed, evenly, to every team, whether you win or lose, to be distributed evenly and fairly. That will solve the problem.

      The fact that a presidential candidate would even waste her time talking about sports tells you that all she wants to do is pit everyone against each other. For once, I agree. Treat everyone the same and give everyone the same amount, and then let’s see how many people take a knee during the National Anthem.

        Give the money to congress!! That would be the last group I would ever give money to. We’ll call it The Department of Thanks Suckers. We’ll need a Commissioner with a staff, office space, a Publicity Director, Legal staff, a head of Diversity. Very important that the LBQT-123 that identify as female be included.
        Keep congress out of it would be a good start.

        Sure, no mention of the horses. No one ever remembers the fucking horses.

        Dressage is a unique discipline for riding a horse. It is as unique as Hunter/Jumpers, Tennessee Walkers, Three or Five Gaited Horses, Reining, Endurance, Eventing or any others that come to mind. Dressage is an Olympic discipline, enjoying great international popularity internationally.

        Don’t get me started on Jumping + Eventing,

        You win the goddamn Gold Medal and your horse gets a bag of oats.

    And if people stop watching men’s sports or if they stop attending games, ticket and advertising revenue will drop significantly, which means salaries will also drop. That’s how things work. EC101.

    And if you want to get wages up, if nobody applies when a job opening is advertised, it means the employer is not offering enough money, which means he must raise the amount he is willing to pay instead of complaining that we have a shortage of workers and need more illegals.

    The Womens World Cup has overall Revenue of $73 Million.
    The Mens World Cup has overall Revenue of $4.6 BILLION

    The US Men are not as bad as people make them out to be it is just that there are so many Countires that are so good. The Women dominate because the United States is literally the only Country on the planet that cares about Womens soccer.

      It also doesn’t hurt when you have a pool of a 180,000,000 women in the US to pick from to make a team.

      Netherlands has 17,308,133 total, men/women/trans.

      Let’s see the USA beat a EU team.
      The EU has a population of 512 million, so a pool of 256 million women.
      They eat this sport up. I’d put my money on the EU if they could field a team out of that pool.

      17,000,000 is approximately the combined population of Michigan and Arizona. Field a team just from those 2 states and call it Team USA.

      I never liked international team sports where the team is made from the populace of the country. The little countries are screwed from the get go.

      Individual competition is much more fair. One person, whose only handicap may be funding to excel to the greatest extent.

      BFD, André the Giant beat up Billy Barty. We’re #1, we’re #1.

      Danny Ainge had it down to an art form back in the day. He could pull a “Owie” whenever needed.

      My nephew was the designated Dive guy on his Div 1 football team the last half of his last football year. Too many injuries and concussions to be a starter. After the officials told the coach, “No More” for the last guy on the team with the job, the baton was passed to my nephew. The officials know, they just don’t want it to be that obvious.

      True fact. Coach gets the HC job at a big time school in the south before the bowl game. Says to my nephew before he quits, “In the bowl game if you pull up lame, point to the sky so I’ll know it’s fake.”

      My nephew did.

      I used to watch the games on ESPN and would text my sister. “Fake?” “Yeah, fake.”

    They lost me forever at the exact instant where that US Flag got dumped on the ground like a sack of potatoes so a group of those nitwits could act goofy for the camera. If US Women’s Soccer suddenly disappeared from the face of the Earth there’s probably less than 100,000 who’d even notice, and these players apparently fail to see the forest for the trees.
