    The folks advocating for the women's soccer team are wrong. Maybe they bring in more revenue in ticket sales, but that's nothing compared to the ad money that men bring in. If there's a sexist conspiracy, it actually favors women due to their bigger fee structure, even if they make less in aggregate. And of course, they're relying on lawsuits... as opposed to using worker strikes as leverage, which is something male athletes typically do if they feel poorly compensated... I guess these ladies themselves don't think they have much worth. And who cares if the ladies win more (against foreign teams that probably aren't as developed, mind you), if they still fail to draw in more ad money. And don't get me started on tennis or biology. With that being said, kudos to the female athletes that still respect the American flag.

    If they want equal pay and think they perform better then the men’s team then they should play against the men’s USA team and see how they do.

    On the uswnt it’s not the same because Brazil Germany have great players it’s like comparing oranges to twinkies but I agree they should be paid equally because the women don’t roll on the ground like there being murdered

    This is racist and stupid. Seams like everyone thinks black people are poor. My country has also some "Illuminated" people like this. They think there should be and easy way in to college for black people and gipsies 🤦 Instead of giving the opportunity available for poor but hardworking kids ( of any color or background). If this isn't discriminating based on your "race" I don't know what it is. And here you can't buy your way into college, it takes only your grades into account but they want a special system appart from other's so that black people and gipsies would be able to get into college even if they have worse grades than any other poor kid.

    There’s a pay gap due to viewership and sponsorship. Simple as that. Women’s soccer in general draws less viewership. As the ladies continue to win, they’ll draw more viewership in the US and get paid more. Women’s international soccer is less competitive

    Instead of saying hey pay us like the men although we dont draw the men's revenue, you should examine how to draw (without shaming) people to your sport. Maybe change some rules, play the men I'm exhibition games, advertise more, maybe a video game if you dont already have one,

    People who support equal pay do not understand free market capitalism. Even where the gender is the same you see the difference. For example, a college football team that is not in one big five conference's can go undefeated and not make as much money as a team in the big five who performs poorly. This is because there is a bigger draw. Again free market capitalism.

    The females are not better than males. They are better at beating the females than the males beating the males. . To do a one to one, the males would have to play the females or vice versa. Also, the males drew more money. It's called capitalism.

    This is so disappointing and damaging to POC who are doing actual good for the community instead of attempting to revive a harsh part of Hammurabi's Code. If you don't want out-of-towners snatching up tickets, then sell the tickets at select locations within the city of Detroit and NOT online? Perhaps in predominately African-American areas if you don't want a bunch of wippl there? You could have done SO MUCH better, AfroFuture. Instead, you're perpetuating racism by charging more money to people who you think deserve to be punished for something they didn't even necessarily do.

    At the DIA (Detroit Institute of Arts) anyone living in Wayne County can show the ticket stand their Driver's License and walk in for free. AfroFuture fest could've done the exact same thing (or just charge residents the cheaper fare) if they want to make sure community members show up and aren't shafted by scalpers. I have a hard time believing the organizers of this event, if they're from the Detroit area, were unaware of this option, leading me to believe this is another case of disproportionate affirmative action. Also, would they charge Arab residents, who make up a significant minority population in Detroit, or Asians or Hispanics the cheaper fare? Since they talked about how they're performing in a historically black neighborhood, I wonder if even the term "People of Color" is exclusive to just African Americans.

    Let people, of any race, who are on the social pay what they can afford. And every one else can pay the £20. That makes it fairer and allows anyone of any skin colour attend if they want to. It should be about social inequity not race.

    And these are the people who shout & claim racism at the top of their voices every chance they get, we hear it all of the time, yet at the same time they think it's fine to charge double because your skin isn't the right colour. Double standards, me thinks. Here's an idea to everyone, why not try to stop fueling the fire., Then maybe we can all move on. Racism should be something we all talk about in the past tense!

    Racism is on the rise. Never knew racism growing up, but with this anti white movement and push for "white guilt," I'm definently getting closer and closer to the line. In the 90s and early 00s racism was on a heavy decline, now I see racism everywhere in media and Hollywood. I see little of it in the real world, but it's more than a little worrisome the way things are trending. The current 18-30 gen seems to be the most ignorant generation humanity has ever given birth to.

    Men's soccer team gets paid more than women's soccer team is wrong. First of don't compare them based on skill. They lost against under-15 boys team 5-2 I think. So I apologize but if under-15 boys can won that championship...(insert anything you want here). And another thing correct me if I'm wrong but professional athletes gets paid based on their skills, stats and their popularity. Also popularity of the sport does effect their earnings. If you want a equal pay based on your skills, well then win or tie against male soccer team then we'll talk. The thing that gets me teams gets paid by certain % and women's team already getting paid more than men. They paid more for earning less and no one even knows or likes them and the only thing I know is one of them did insult national anthem, is a millionaire and still talks sh*t.

    I think this is one of those cases where the women should be paid more. If you perform better, then you should get paid more. Plain and simple. Though, it's hard to feel any sympathy for professional sports players when they complain about not making enough money

    My cousin has two biracial kids with the same father, one is obviously biracial while the other looks white. Messed up that the one that "looks" white would have to pay extra. I believe it should be based off of residency or income.

    I'd just say (on the charging white ppl more), imagine if the situation were reversed and ppl of colour were charged more. Without Doubt or failure this would be labeled racist by Everyone black/white etc. And would immediately be boycotted, rioted, and shut down. -- And for that pathetic attempt to legitimize racism, I used to live in an area of Houston where ppl hawk tickets, and it was Never a white guy doing it. So to say white ppl are going buy up ALL the tickets just to go into a predominantly black area to hawk tickets is just stupid, and racist.

    When it comes to sports and you can't make a set salary. I'm a huge womens soccer fan, but on a world level, they dont get the same numbers as the men. Yes, they are popular in the USA but you have to look at the real profit. The mens cup final makes in the billions, while the womens dont come close. Men get paid around 7%-9% of what's made of the billions, while women get paid 20% of the millions. So they are getting paid more. You can't pick a choose what facts to compare.
