    No matter how hard the media pushes women's soccer, it still barely attracts 10% of the audience that men's soccer does.
    Not only don't they deserve equal pay, frankly they don't even deserve a league of their own.

            It's not that easy. If Jimmy's ratings went down, people will get cut. That's how business works. It's not a matter of opinion, it's a fact that men's football generate more money than woman football. Morgan and Megan are great ambassadors no doubt, but woman football just isn't that marketable compared to men.

                  *FUN FACT* : FC Dallas' professional men's team are ranked 636th in the world. The US national women's team, ranked 1st, were beaten 5-2 by FC Dallas' Under 15 boys. The best female national team lost to the under 15's of a men's club team ranked 636th. That should give you some perspective of the disparity between the sexes. The US women would probably struggle to qualify for the male Under 17 World Cup.

                    This reminda me why I dislike Kimmel. Equal pay my ass. I really want Zlatan to be annoyed enough to put these brats in their place.

                    Men's team is competing at way higher standards and for a country that has no proper league, they are successful in world cups.

                    Especially the sheer disrespect against us men's team is obnoxious!

                    Equal pay my arse, even nations league has more prestige than their accolades. Which of course are successes and women's football should develop, but the reason they're not winning as much is the fact that they're not that good, they're not generating that much money, their club competitions are less attractive than neighbourhood tournaments IN Sao Paolo.

                    Imagine Pulisic, seeing these girls thinking they're better than him because they dominate women's football.

                    And the reason they're dominating it, is because they defend very well, and they have much better physicality than the rest. They can lock opponents play down and eventually they know they'll get something from their attacks. Alex Morgan is really a solid finisher, they have good wing backs for that level. Their squad has balance.

                    But make no mistake. Compared to men, they suck

                      Ok, so according to Jimmy logic dictates that the women's team should be paid more than the men's team. He's basing this solely on how successful the women's team is compared to the men's team. So, why not have the two teams play each other and winner gets higher pay.

                      Right?!! Ffs !!! This isn't about gender equality. Men's soccer is the most watched/ consumed sporting product on this planet. Let's promote female soccer and hopefully one day it will get traded up to the elite level and then demand for equal pay. To ask for it now is absurd !!!

                      Simple math, if I was part of an organization that made 100$ a month and I get a 10$ compensation for my efforts. There is someone else who does the same work I do for another organization that makes 1000$ a month and gets paid 100$ as compensation. Do I reserve the right to go to my organization and demand I get paid 100$ too?? They would laugh at me !! Because it is beyond absurd.

                        you'll get equal pay when you bring in equal money.. people like watching men play sports because they are just stronger and athletically built for it... a woman can work out her entire life trying to max lift and her arms will still only be as big as a man who doesnt work out.. Go find something else to be good at im sure you can find something... like fitting your arms into small places things like that

                                          These women are so ungrateful and self entitled. The USSF pays them a guaranteed salary regardless of whether they play, don't play, win or lose to which they can add bonuses on top. The men are only paid playing & winning bonuses. Sure their bonuses are higher, but they've chosen to forgo the safety and security of a guaranteed income. It's proven that the men generate more revenue per game which also justifies their bonuses being higher too. The women also receive guaranteed benefits like heath, vision & dental insurance as well as a retirement plan, severance pay, paid maternity leave and childcare assistance. The men receive none of these under their contract with USSF. The federation is also going out of their way to help the women's league too. They're subsidizing the NWSL, which includes paying the women their club salaries. They do this because their league cannot run itself due to the lack of demand for the women's game. The men receive nothing from the USSF for the MLS. The US women also have one of the best infrastructures in all of women's soccer, allowing them to pursue a career in the sport, prospering and flourishing. This is a luxury that many other female soccer players around the world do not have. Their guaranteed salaries alone put them in the world's top 1% when it comes to income. Yet, they are claiming gender discrimination. Middle/upper class women in the US are probably the most privileged group of people that have ever walked this earth.

                                                                                  There is no ”mens soccer” or any other ”mens sport”. Those leagues are just the leagues open for everyone, no matter if you are man, woman, under 18 years old, blind, paraplegic etc. There are however a number of leagues open to you only if you fullfill certain specific criteria, such as a U18 league, womens league, paralympics etc.

                                                                                  If you want equal pay, take a spot on the roster of the one big league that is open to anyone - the so called ”mens league”.

                                                                                  I can’t believe noone told them about this before...
