If we're going to follow their logic, shouldn't all football players be paid the same wage? Someone who plays for Manchester United still does the same job as someone who plays for Macclesfield Town, so why aren't they paid the same?
I'm confused. You talk about football, a good and fun sport, then say Manchester United, which sounds like some silly soccer club.If we're going to follow their logic, shouldn't all football players be paid the same wage? Someone who plays for Manchester United still does the same job as someone who plays for Macclesfield Town, so why aren't they paid the same?
that's not a bad idea, they should get some experts from US military on integration. So if a goal is scored by a woman, it's counted as 1.2 and if goal scored against a female goalie by a man, it's only 0.8 point.If you want equal pay, why keep separate leagues?
I wish US men's football did not suck hard. It's practically unwatchable. When a Euro club comes for a friendly game, it's a huge event.We had this debate (far more professionally handled) recently about the female national team being paid less than the male ones; consequently playing less for less spectators. Thankfully the sensible women figured it was a supply/demand issue, but the national soccer union kept pushing it on 50 other fronts for brownie points. Some of the national team players basically lost money flying from their real team in the US back home, play, and then back again.
The general consensus for facebook grannies was "you don't play for the money but the pride and nationalism!". They literally paid money to represent our country in a low-viewer sport. Can't remember the outcome but it's not a first for the US.
