...they move the men around just as much. no? your argument for them being the cash cow, i’m not sure. ??? as a general rule the mnt brings in a lot more revenue than the wnt. depending on how you pick the 4year cycle, sometimes the mnt brings in close to double what the wnt does. https://www.si.com/planet-futbol/2016/04/06/uswnt-us-soccer-wage-discrimination-revenue-unequal-pay plus, afaik, the members of the mnt don’t have to be paid to survive, they make their $$ from their clubs. otoh, us soccer has to fork over close to a 1/4 million dollars per player to keep wnt players in the game. if you’re going by raw capitalism, the wnt players probably don’t yet deserve the same as the men. (it will get there). but, as in other sports, it simply seems the right and fair thing to do to pay them equally. especially if you want to grow woso.
