    As I mentioned in another cartoon, it probably means the guys are gonna get a pay cut.

    Just for clarification…Is this a question of equal pay or equal pay scale?

    Because sports pay is usually tied to ticket sales and viewing numbers. So athletes who play more popular sports tend to make more money than athletes who play less popular sports. I ask because it seems that women’s sports are less popular in terms of viewing and ticket sales than men’s sports. (That’s just my impression, please correct me if I’m wrong! :-))

    So I agree that the scale should be the same but I don’t agree that pay should be equal purely for the sake of equality.

    For example, if NBA games make 25% more revenue on average than NHL games, (Just an example, making those numbers up) then it stands to reason that NBA players should be making an average of 25% more money. By the same token, if NBA games make 25% more revenue than WNBA games, then the pay should again differ by an average of 25%. But if WNBA players are making on average 50% less than NBA players, then they should be payed an additional 25% to match the revenue scale.

    Does Mo really think that if the highest paid women (in sports/entertainment or executives) get a pay raise, it will somehow trickle down?

    If somebody started a women’s football league, should they automatically get the same pay as the NFL?

    The women’s team should be paid more: unlike the men’s team, they actually win games (and tournaments)

    The pay scale for athletes are OUTRAGEOUS, and a great number of them are busted for rape, murder, abuse, etc….ridiculous. NO ONE is worth what they’re paid! Just remember…the more they’re paid, the more tickets become…it’s almost impossible for the average family….. can’t even get to the stadiums because of the costs….not to mention the outrageous cost of food! BOO HISS,

    Ad revenue from Men’s World Soccer Cup $6 billionAd revenue from Women’s World Soccer Cup $0.073 Billionhttps://www.forbes.com/sites/mikeozanian/2019/03/07/world-cup-soccer-pay-disparity-between-men-and-women-is-justified/#63f83a4c6da4It isn’t discrimination, it’s second grade arithmetic.

    As a percentage of revenue, the women actually make more than the men. If women’s soccer brings in equal revenue they should also be paid equally. As it is right now, their is no discrimination when it comes to the world cup pay.

    Fox News was broadcasting live from a bar. After the women won the game the crowd started shouting, “F- Trump!”

    The #1 US Women’s World Cup team has generated more revenue than the Men’s team (ranked generously at #30), but are still being paid less. Let’s fix that.

    Let’s look at a bigger picture – how about fixing the pay gap in general and not limiting the focus to athletes.

    Since the US men’s team has never won the World Cup, maybe the women’s team should be paid more.

    The position of president should automatically be honorable but the high rent scuzzball who fills it warrants a tar an feathering for being a scofflaw and a criminal.
