Why’s that?

Sorry I’m out of the loop here

What’s all the hate for?

I’d assume it’s the bandwagonness. I get it, I’m completely like that for this

Couldn’t give two shits about women’s soccer, but hey ‘Merica

They’re all triggered because Rapinoe kneels for the national anthem and the women want to be paid fairly

Yes. This does trigger me.

Doesn’t trigger me at all. They are paid fairly in regards to the revenue that they bring in. They actually want to be paid a ridiculous amount in regards to their average annual revenue.

But that isn’t a sexy headline.

Ahhh didn’t know that.
So that’s why you pull against?

I just know she’s one of the best players on our team so I want her to play so we win

Well that or Netherlands

I pull against them because Rapinoe should not be wearing representing the country if she won’t respect the anthem.

I have no problem with that stuff in the NFL, or doing it for your club. But if you’re going to wear the flag and colors I think you should be required to stand for the anthem.....don’t sing, hell don’t even put your hand over your heart, but at least stand with the rest of the team.

re: tOfficial 2019 Women's World Cup Thread
Idgaf about rapinoe taking a knee even a little bit.

I do take issue with them wanting equal pay to the men.

I’m all for them having equal accommodations, playing conditions and an equal percentage to what the men make. BUT that does not mean they should be paid the exact same amount. I’m assuming the men’s team brings in drastically more revenue than the women. None of that would make me root against them though.

I do think they are slipping, and the world is catching up to them. But I’m still USA all the way.

Agreed. I think it should be a set percentage of revenue.

The women know this is their payday though and their trying to take advantage. I don’t fault them for that and respect it. But they way they’ve gone about it has been pretty retarded

I can understand that. Especially with the way the media promotes the equal pay narrative.

Misplaced anger and discontent. Is that what she’s really doing? Or is she doing this because people in general don’t give a frick unless you do something to garner eyeballs?

All I know is that infatuation with an anthem, or an flag, neither of which are truly representative of what a country is, has gone way overboard.


I also love how you whine about patriotism but sport a sig bearing an image of biggest douche and patriotic phony ever to sit in office. Bit hypocritical.

I think the issue that is currently weighing in the USWNT's favor is that most of the sponsorships that US Soccer makes money from isn't separated by team. Nike writes one check and they get both the men's and women's team. So US Soccer really can't say exactly how much money each team brings in.
