An interesting item in the article mentions that World Cup winnings would be pooled and divided evenly as well. Which is huge in a cycle like this year, since by just qualifying, the US Men's team gets $10 million, whereas as champions of the Women's World Cup, the prize was reportedly a total of $4 million.

I've never really been gung ho about the women's team but I see no issue with this development. The women win (more frequently than the men), draw big crowds, probably sell lots of apparel.

They're some of the biggest stars in women's team sports across the entire globe so I say they deserve every dollar they'll get from this deal.

So are we setting the groundwork for there to be just a soccer team, regardless of gender? That seems to be the way the liberals want it to go.

Simple way I see it: the mens' team sucks, and the womens team wins all the time. If anything the women should get paid more than the men.
