    which crap?
    If it looks like I asked a question, but put a period, it's probably a question.
    Don't know why I'm question-mark challenged online. 😀 New Year's Resolution, better proof reading.

    well, our women have produced a world championship several times...the men didn't even qualify...might be teams should pay for results rather than participation...
    Due to current budgetary restrictions the light at the end of the tunnel has been turned off -- sorry about the inconvenience.

    There are of course many factors in that.

    If they generate more money in sponsorship, tv rights, prize money etc. Then of course the national side should receive wages that reflect that.

    The majority of the money raised is in club football, not the national side.

    I doubt that they get as many bums on seats or pay per view week in week out, that has to be the marker rather than a once every four years competition.

    I guess it’s unlikely either of us will get the chance to turn her down.

    If the wage gap thing was true, companies would simply just hire more women to cut costs...

    I read that the men’s take was 9% and the woman’s 14% of the revenue generated. Sounds like a gap to me too. Anyway it’s soccer, I would imagine there isn’t as much interest in it as football or basketball. Women’s beach volleyball or jello wrestling might hold my attention for a few minutes but I’ll pass on soccer.

    Liberal logic:

    1. There's a massive gender pay gap that harms women.

    2. Gender is a social construct that has nothing to do with observable physical characteristics.
