Sounds like soccer is a waste of money.

I just assumed that the pay discrepancy was due to differences in revenue originally. It seems like it is a lot more complicated. If women were paid more than men, the complaint would seem to be more about pay structure differences--the women negotiated a high base salary with smaller bonuses for wins while the men negotiated zero base salary with heavy reliance on bonuses for wins. Presumably, the woman might have earned more if they had the men's pay schedule since they have had a better win record in recent years, but that seems to be a problem with the compensation package the union for the women's team negotiated. It also seems a lot like a coulda' shoulda' woulda' to complain about compensation mix after proving yourselves to have a more winning record. 

Quote:Ms. Levinson said the federation’s numbers “inappropriately include the NWSL salaries of the players to inflate the women’s players compensation. Any apples to apples comparison shows that the men earn far more than the women.”

Uhmm....seriously? The representative for the women soccer players think's it's inappropriate to include the player's salaries when comparing compensation? This is starting to look like a complete B.S. setup job by women players trying to assert sexism in order to negotiate more pay. Of course this is the first we have heard from the league in response to this issue, so there could be more to this than I am aware.  But if the response from the women players is to complain how unfair it is to include their base salary when comparing compensation figures, then what little I cared about this issue has gone to "couldn't care less" about it. 

Wouldn't it be funny if all the complaints resulted in the men's union suing the league to get the same comp package the women's team gets Smile I mean, according to league figures, gross income for men's team is twice that for the women's team (presumably including not just ticket sales but advertising and other revenues) . Why should it be fair for men to receive no base salary? Of course, I think the men negotiated their own compensation package and should live with it until it's time to renegotiate, but the league did a pretty good job laying out the case for wage discrimination against the men.

Huh? Who is angry besides you lmao

Youve insulted me multiple times in multiple threads when i did nothing to provoke you but disagree with you. Youve now mocked me for having some potentially traumatic event in my life and suggesting I "talk about it." What kind of person are you? Just because your cronies on here wont call you out on your bullshit doesnt mean youre not full of it.

Youre behaving like a child. I have nothing more to say to you. Not because im angry, or even give a shit about your snide little comments, but because you have zero interest in having a conversation with someone who doesnt see things your way 100%.
If you're frightened of dying, and you're holding on, you'll see devils tearing your life away. But if you've made your peace, then the devils are really angels, freeing you from the Earth.
