He is 100% correct. But he is part of the machine that created this modern social media driven culture of nonsense.

The doublespeak is amazing on this issue.

The ideologists emphasize performance rather than generated revenue...as if there is an equivalence between women and men in their respective competitions...treating all revenue as 1 pool.

Communism.

I have said this before: equal pay does not even exist in the men's game! Players at Exeter City do not get paid the same as Man City's players.

Even players in the same team do not get equal pay. Messi is not on the same salary as his teammate Layvin Kurzawa.

The difference here is the US women national team are more successful (significantly ) than their male counterparts

The bigger issue is consumerism and I see some changes in the women’s game as they are attracting gate fees so it’s a matter of time

The so called success factor is distorted to justify an unfair share of revenue.

Let's be blunt: the women's game remains inferior and just can't draw in crowds. Except for some games in the women's WC, which still are commercially dwarfed by the men's game. Gender politics try to cover up the reality.

Biggest irony for me: why don't women come out big and watch women's club football? I bet more women attend men's club football with their male counterparts.

Has the women’s success resulted in higher revenues than the men’s game generates? If performance does not impact revenue then it shouldn’t be used as a criterion for revenue sharing🤔❗️

Mate,
The women game attracts more viewerships in the US than any other place in the world. The women World Cup live event has been #1 even when pitted against other sports except NFL.
Outside of the US however the game struggles.

How does the revenue derived thereof compare to the revenue generated by the men’s game in the US?


376 heavily armed and trained cops in body armor, with APCs, are scared to death of ONE 18-year old with an AR-15

But the general public, with none of those advantages, should not be concerned that 18-year olds can buy AR-15s

I am not sure what the viewerships are for the USA women, but a higher count mean more revenue. Ad pricing is primarily based on reach and frequency of viewings on demographics that spend money due to targeted advertising. As such, the FIFA men's competition makes more. And the USA share of this should only go to the men, with the women keeping their share of their World Cup.

The killer is the club level. Women especially don't come out. A women's WC is the outlier here, where I bet only the latter stages are highly watched.

Thanks for this response, you are spot on
The women's game is huge in the US, hence the pay justifies the revenue, coupled with their success

No, the women game doesn't bring bigger crowds or revenue compared to the men in the USA.
I don't know where yall got that from

However the women earn 30% of the revenue from Fifa while men gets 7%
