Let's put this in context. The World Cup is a tournament, it isn't an indication of annual revenues of men and women's professional soccer. Not unlike beach volleyball where women's matches in the Olympics has an extremely high viewing audience compared to men. I don't know how they pay the men and women who participate in The World Cup but since the women's team is bringing in greater crowds and generating more merchandise sales, then I think they should be paid more than men during the tournament; this is capitalism.
But outside of the tournament and during the regular soccer season, men bring in much more revenues from ticket sales to merchandise. Last year, U.S. women's soccer brought in $73 million dollars and the players received 13% of those revenues. The men brought in over $4 billion dollars, 55 times the revenue the women's league brought in, and they shared in 9% of the revenues. If I really wanted to twist the numbers, like politicians do, I could say that men are getting less of a share of what they bring in than women are. This would be so misleading but it's the game these liberals play.
I guess you see why I'm so frustrated. Everything is about politics and politics have become everything about division. One side creates a problem that doesn't really exist and then blames the other side for it. Then they act like they're out there fighting the good fight for the rest of us who are "supposedly," victims. Where has integrity gone?
