  • The US Women's Soccer Team...

    ...Does not think too highly of Trump:

    https://www.msn.com/en-us/sports/fif...cid=spartandhp

    'USWNT defender Ali Krieger issued a strong rebuke to President Donald Trump after he tweeted about teammate Megan Rapinoe on Wednesday.'

    '"In regards to the 'President's' tweet today, I know women who you cannot control or grope anger you, but I stand by (Rapinoe) & will sit this one out as well," Krieger wrote.'

    '"I don't support this administration nor their fight against LGBTQ+ citizens, immigrants & our most vulnerable."'


    We are not now that strength which in old days
    Moved earth and heaven; that which we are we are; One equal temper of heroic hearts
    Made weak by time and fate but strong in will
    To strive to seek to find and not to yield.

    Rapinoe has been protesting the national anthem for quite some time now. When no one noticed, she leaked it to the media. Who cares? I don't. As long as she's not disrespecting the anthem, she can continue doing what she's been doing, standing to it.

        Yes they're actually better than their male counterparts

        They narrowly lost out to Italy - I think, I'd have to check...

        Isn't soccer practiced more by girls in the US, kind of like basketbal here ?

            They also bring in $20 million a year more than their male counterparts in advertising but they get paid a quarter as much.

              Women WC is live on national TV here now, that's probably a good start towards better pay..

              Unfortunately viewers numbers are disappointing, since women apparently do not watch other women play like men do

                I was watching...until it became politicized, then I switched off. Sports used to be a great form of escapism from everything going on outside the stadium until players began using it as a personal stage to voice their political grievances. I don't watch sports anymore and I'm content just to read about it next day.

                That said, I'm happy for the Lesbian World Cup on their increasing popularity and do hope they soon receive the same pay as their male counterparts.

                    The US womenís team beat Spain in the womenís World Cup.
                    They are more successful than the US menís team, but arenít better.
                    Admittedly, that may not have been what you meant.
                    Anyway, womenís national teams play high school boyís teams now and then and get crushed.

                      Iím curious too. I saw the breakdown of revenue generated a couple years ago and it wasnít close with the menís team brining in far more.

                        Since the women haven't played the men's team, you really can't make that assumption, unless of course you're just being sexist and assuming the men are better simply because they are men. You have to look at accomplishments. And the woman's World Cup team has crushed the men in that regard.

                            This Friday the woman will take on France. The woman's team did not play very well on Monday against Spain winning on two penalty kicks in the box. Still, it should be a good game with the Americans the favored. Norway and England play today.

                              I base my opinion on the fact that 2 WWC powers (Australia and Sweden) have played boy's high school teams in the last few years and got crushed.

                              I also tend to watch the women's team and the men's team. The difference in ability and athleticism is obvious.
                              I've never seen Mike Tyson fight my sister either, but I still know who would win
