                  They gotta understand that they get paid based on the revenue and not whether they win or work their hardest. Kinda like YouTube, it's not about who works the hardest it's about who gets more views, and definitely men's football is more viewed.

                    USA to compensate for the lack of revenue women's football generates they give women a larger percentage of the total revenue than men. Yet they still complain and act entitled.

                  The USWNT deserves to be paid as equally as the men. They work their butts off in the field in order to represent the country that they love. Why are a lot of you hating on them? You all should be supporting them instead of throwing that crap about revenue. One nation, one team...remember?

                    In 2014, FIFA pulled in over 4 billion dollars. Players received 9% of that. In the female world cup, the female players received 11% of the profit despite only pulling in 1/8th compared to FIFA. If women were paid the same, they would need to take 88% of the total revenue which is absolutely unreasonable. This is true for any business just because someone works the same hard does not mean they should be paid the same amount. We live in a society where people are paid based on the value they bring to society rather than than how hard someone works. A similar example would be to compare the salary of a programmer at a startup compared to a larger corporation. Often a programmer at a larger corporation gets paid more than the programmer at the startup because the larger corporation generates more revenue.

                      @Atharva Kubal Everyone has a right to criticize the government. Rapinoe knelt because she disagrees with Trump and doesn't want to represent him or his administration. And I don't blame her. As to the men's team being more popular, so what? That doesn't mean that the women shouldn't be supported.

                      @Daniela Higareda i guess its because of Rapino's weird behaviour.She knelt down during the anthem.Openly criticized Trump and more.And yes they are 100x better than USMNT.They actually deserve more pay than the Men's team but again the Men's game is more famous and watched around the world

                          There is a lot of ignorance in this interview. Yes the US mens team haven't performed well however, look at the competition they face - they have no chance of winning the men's world cup!

                          The second is the arrogance of how great they seem to think the USWNT is. Saying that they would come 1st and 2nd if they submitted two teams is incredibly disrespectful to the likes of Netherlands, England, Sweden, France, Japan and Brazil who performed way and the USWNT hardly smashed them.

                          The equal pay thing I think has been misconstrued. From an interview I've seen previously, they have stated that they want the American FA (or whatever it's called) to pay them equally when on international duty. So nothing to do with FIFA pay outs for tournament positions, or domestic leagues, just simply the amount for representing their country. I don't claim to know how much is earned per match, but the argument has definitely been interpreted differently by many people!

                            They want to be paid the same astronomical salaries as the mens game.

                            Problem is, it has nothing to do with equality, they simply have no market. The money is not there as the standard isn't there.

                            They were torn apart by Dallas U15s, a bunch of schoolboys essentially. Those kids that make the grade are destined for mediocrity in the MLS. I mean no offence by that. Its simply a comparison to the standards across the Atlantic.

                              Men’s soccer brought in 6 billion world wide in revenue. Women’s soccer brought 132 million world wide in revenue. They actually got paid more than men as far as percentages. The real question should have been, “Do you guys feel like if you played the 14 year old boys who beat you guys in 2017 today, would you guys win? Would you be up for a rematch?”

                                Women shouldn’t be paid as much as men. It is a revenue thing not a sexist thing.

They are setting an example for little girls to follow. These women work their butts off representing the United States of America...don't you think they ought to be paid equally?

If these homosexuals refuse to repent to the Lord Jesus Christ they will die in their SIN and open their eyes in torment. Life is not a game, God is going to judge every person. All those who rejected Jesus Christ will be bound hand and foot and cast into the Lake of Fire. Some people God has turned over to a reprobate mind meaning the Lord lets them believe the lie because that’s what they want to believe.

HELL NOO, the reason women are dominant is bc everyone else sucks, for example the the men World Cup has wayyyyyy better players from many countries that have wayyyy better skills and tactility to play the game, you show me women who play like Messi, Ronaldo, Pirlo, VVD, and manyyy manny players from la liga, prem, serie a. Women can’t play at the level of men and that’s why they don’t get paid the sane
