World Cup

3 posts in this topic

I am in France right now and you wouldn't know it's here. Not a single place with a TV on has shown any matches.  I flipped on the TV the other night and couldn't find it. Seen plenty of random men's games going on but never the women WC. 

While I am here, can I lobby a complaint? I am sick and tired of hearing about equal pay with the ladies. I'm all for equality, but in this case the economics don't support it. It's pretty simple math: Men TV+advertising $ > Women TV+advertising $

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.
