  1. Saw this on Yahoo today. "The women’s team’s games generated $50.8 million in revenue from 2016 to 2018 compared to the male team’s games which made $49.9 million, according to U.S. soccer’s audited financial statements obtained by The Wall Street Journal" Of course this is just game revenue and not total revenue. I would like to see what total revenue is for both of them.
  2. I like watching soccer, male/female a good game is a good game. The Chilean goalkeeper put on a great game against the US on Sunday. The men flop so much now that it is getting harder and harder to watch. I am not saying they need equal pay, but they could be treated alot better.
  3. I was of the same opinion until I learned it is not just about pay amount. They are after equal treatment. Like the men's team only plays on natural grass, the girls don't get the option. The men get chartered flights, the women only get commercial flights. The men get paid for every game they play, the women only get paid for the first 20 games after that they are playing for free. There maybe more but these are the differences that I have found so far. And it is not just the USWNT, Ada Hegerberg (she won the award for best female player) of Norway's national team is boycotting the World Cup, to protest against the inequalities. Would be like Messi or Ronaldo boycotting.
  4. Anyone watching the women's WC?
  5. Yea, I wasn't on his bandwagon but he showed some promise in the second Giants game this year even with the O-line being pretty bad. He still needs to improve a lot just to be average. Yea really excited to see them this year, with our center back.
  6. Dallas is the same for the most part. Although there is a split on Dak being good/bad.
  7. So who is happy with their teams draft? Dallas is ok, only pick I really didn't like was Pollard in the 4th. Think that messed up the picks following it slightly.
  8. Nationals are in swing, but just about done for today. Will have more Sat and Sun. https://www.thebluealliance.com/
  9. They are into Beta 1. Things are going pretty good, the engine is a beast. They have had over 3k bots/players logged into a fairly small map, the zone crashed but not before they topped 4k. Lately they have been pushing the building sizes. Had a 9 million piece castle under siege with over 3k bots/players. Think building like Minecraft, blocks, and fully destructible with siege weapons.
  10. Todays live streams. https://frc-events.firstinspires.org/watch Here is the link to rules. https://www.bing.com/videos/search?q=first+robotics+competition+2019+rules+overview&&view=detail&mid=2C43559E3D1656DD112F2C43559E3D1656DD112F&&FORM=VRDGAR Ps. the Team #'s are based on when the high school started a robotics program. Not that the younger teams can't win, they have just had less time to develop an infrastructure/support system. Team 364 is my old high school, the regional they are in today is not live streaming though.
  11. https://www.twitch.tv/firstinspires11/videos?filter=collections Try this link it is to the archives. Also more live stuff starting tomorrow.
  12. High School Regional robotics contests finals today. https://frc-events.firstinspires.org/watch Pretty interesting. Friend of mines son is in the Huntsville finals. Their 3 team alliance won. There are more regionals next weekend for those that want to watch some live. I thought that it would be boring but figured I would check them. Ended up really enjoying them and watching most of the matches Friday and Saturday. Wish they had these back when I was in high school.
  13. You have to love the trade they pulled off for OBJ.
  14. After the way the ref's are calling games this year they will need to cheat to just have a chance. There are always bad/no calls that go against both teams but at least for Dallas they are just making stuff up. Like how can the QB be sacked by his own offensive lineman.
  15. Only have 8g on this system and there are several games that push it past 90% used. So would say 12g to 16g would be the min. if I was getting a new system. Only reason I haven't upgraded mine is the cost.
