    They make less because they aren’t as good. Men’s sports is just more popular. Women and men both enjoy men Sports more. The Daily Show is becoming an sjw tool of propaganda and it’s pushing me more towards the center

    Men’s sports are just more interesting and turn more of a profit. This is why women get paid less in sports.

    People need to understand that in soccer there are usually 3 different forms of income. There is the income from your club team (most of the pro-income) the income from your national team (which is not as much as a your club team unless you win tournaments and silverware) and whatever you make from sponsorships (nike, adidas, tag heuer, Herbalife). So i think the women do have a point about the federation for the US national team paying them more. Now they cant expect to make the 70 or 80 million euros a year messi and ronaldo make because all of that is situational to their respective clubs and countries they play for. And also i just going out on a limb here assume that players like clint dempsy and jose altidore are making most of their buck from their clubs in the MLS and players like pulisic and wood from the bundesliga in germany. What i do believe is that the womens national team has the silverware to back up their claims to the US soccer federation. And in all honesty the mens play piss poor. How come a country who is the melting pot of the world with so much diversity and flavor and over 300 million people not develop a world cup team and with ability to have all the resources possible to be the best? The womens team was able to do just that. And in all honesty, the reason why the mens team gets such high attendance rates is because they are playing against actual talented teams with world renown players. How is it that the USA at home against Colombia had a stadium with at least 35,000 colombians and it was the highest attended soccer match in tampa? The US fans know that they cant compete against a squad like that so their dont show up and rely on the revenue from the away team to fit the stats. If anything, the federation should pay the womens squad more as a means of showing the men the shit they are playing. Of course the quality is not going to get better if the money never slows down. But the womens team also have to understand that unless their clubs are willing to shell out 5, 10, 20 million a year contracts, they will never make as much as a true mens soccer player.
