    OMG this equal pay thing is so stupid. Particularly the argument that you get paid more than the men's team just based on results in your own world cup. That's not how money works.

                                So such sexism in the comments.

                                "Equal pay" is referring to national representation such as at the World Cup, not professional, for-profit sports leagues. National pride is not a business and does not depend on revenues.

                                Comparing women to men in sports is pointless, meaningless and ridiculous. One male player does not even play like another, so why should women "play like the men"? The women are only going to compete against other women, so all that matters is they be better than the others.

                                        Jimmy is such an ignorant man when it comes to futbol. Mens soccer generate around 650 million dollars while womens soccer around 130 million. So men get more money. Its not all about winning right Jimmy? Most major futbol countries don't support women futbol hence USA women cruise in World Cup because the USA does by a mile. Women don't play fair. Never grateful. Always want more..let's ask a better question Jimmy. Why does mens tennis have to play at least 33% longer in matches in Slams for equal pay? Recently the ladies Final at Wimbledon last less than an hour. Then mens Final? Just another epic showdown nearly 5 hours. Best 3/5. Woman btw 2/3. How is that equal Jimbo? Drop the mike.

The male team brought in over $6 billion during the last World Cup and were paid out of a $400 million pot. The women's team brought in $131 million and were paid over $30 million. So, the men were paid 3 percent of profits, and the women were paid 22 percent of revenue. Find a real problem to complain about because this isn't a real problem, and all the time spent on this lawsuit will be wasted time because you're going to lose the lawsuit.

                                                                          Congratulations on winning the World Cup again, by the way.

Men's football is more popular around the globe unlike women's football. People should just appreciate womens football for what it is as it begins to become increasingly popular. Yes the us men's team has a smaller fan base but they compete in a much bigger tournament: mens world cup which is why they earn more. Plus if the women's team were to play against the men's team they would be heavily defeated. The equal pay argument could be made if the womens team were on the same skill level as the us men's team. But as we know it the us womens team were beaten by an under 15 boys team 5-2. so please stop having the equal pay debate and stop comparing the mens football to womens football otherwise people will never appreciate womens football as a professional sport.

                                                                                  Only the best of the best get to be in the male world cup, not teams like Thailand or Wonderland, you can't blame the US male soccer team for not being as good as Brazil, Argentina or Germany when the U.S have never supported their male national team whatsoever.
                                                                                  You can't say the same from the female world cup, when teams like Thailand are in the tournament you know it's a bit of a joke.

To compare percentages of different sized pies is beyond stupid. Would you rather have 100% of $50.00 or 5% of $600,000? I mean really - the US school system has failed you all. In addition, the women have won FOUR world cups, the US men have won none. So, give it a rest you neanderthals. Women rule!!
