    So much fodder for their "the USMNT sucks" campaign!

    That would be immensely stupid of them.

    They're headed in the same direction so it would be silly to do any kind of celebrating right now.

    No, no celebration. That's a ridiculous notion. The advancement of soccer in this country depends on both national teams. It is not a competition between the two.

    Until the USWNT gets the same base pay, per diem, grass fields, air travel, accommodations benefits as the men, they should press USSF. They should also see a performance bonus structure above and beyond the base as well. The USWNT are proven performers and the USMNT are a pathetic hull of what they should be.

    They may be a pathetic hull, but they're a pathetic hull that still generates much more income for the Fed in comparison.

    I'm fine with same pay as long as the contracts are cancelled. You do know accommodations are not always up to USSF.

    That works. As long as one team is actually primarily employed by the federation, you can never get equality, and all talk of it is ridiculous until we can actually talk about the same fruit rather than apples and dragonfruit.
