    It’s called football, not soccer.
    Don’t be naive.

    Umm the biggest issue they would have is, they dont play enough quality teams. Anyone can beat weak teams…Equal pay is for those that play equal talent.

    When the Republican Primary election devolved into whose dick was larger, Trump’s or Cruz’s, — incidentally that whole riff began when Trump commented on how BIG Cruz’s hands were — I wondered if a similar discussion could ever have taken place between two women candidates, as in whose tits were bigger…..somehow I can’t imagine it. Women are overall more civilized and should lead. Men were put on Earth to fight, and that’s all they’re good at. Too bad it’s a vestigial practice, kind of like the appendix. Let’s get it removed, before it bursts — and poisons us all.

    the fact that you brought more money for just one year doesnt make equal to men team they have been doing it for years, fooball(soccer) is not like office work even in a team players dont get the same amount of money so stop.
    Not to mention you were beaten by 15 year old boys team so no youre not the same.

    The women’s US soccer team is undoubtedly better than the men’s
    It’s ridiculous that they’re the ones being paid less

    I like how in the little parable at the end, the wolves aren’t symbolic of men. They are WOMEN!

    I see women fight for equality when it comes to pay, and women’s rights but only when it concerns women men don’t take you seriously because there is many situations where men don’t get the same treatment as women and we don’t bitch or complain like custody courts favoring women and they tell men they have no rights to the kids, divorce women getting half prenuptial agreements should be mandatory i could name a few more but……

    Women take more time off for pregnancy and they simply work less than men; also they work the lower paying jobs (not too many on the pipelines)…is what I use to believe. That’s the only way I could make sense of them not getting paid the same. Because I was an employer of a few places, I never separated the two. It was, “this job pays $/hr. Do you qualify?” That’s what was advertised to bring them into the interview in the first place. This soccer thing is a whole different issue that’s changed how I saw the disparity in the society. How the women are being treated there is just wrong.

    I hope women get the equality they deserve. But until the International stage gets on same page as women, I don’t see this happening. There’s more potential for men than woman on international stage unfortunately for soccer not only in popularity but opportunity for making money. Also, there’s more bigger names in men’s soccer that can bring to states in order to grow the sport. In US, women do more for soccer due to their success. But another argument to go along that thought, is the international womens team of other countries aren’t as strong because the money invested into mens team vastly outweight their womens team along with social standards of said countries and until that is taken care of too, than the success of women’s team will be even harder.

    Thanks so much for highlighting the issue at Yellowstone with the wolves. There’s more to the story, but the moral is that balance in ecosystems, and people-systems, can be managed, but all sides must be even.

    No only Men or women teams would be real equality.
